Living And Working At The Same Place

internet learning and business

A lot of people have home based businesses which in turn also means that they work and sleep under the same roof which definitely saves a lot of money if you aren’t exactly some kind of large corporation. Just recently though, a person was telling me something kind of similar except he had a different train of thought where he wanted to make his place where he intends to conduct business as his home as well.

Example, rather than say you having a home and then making some kind of office space out of it, instead he intends to get a nice studio where he will conduct classes during certain times and then use it as a home for the rest. It’s usually a little trickier this way though as in a lot of cases your work space may not be deemed allowable to use as a home in these situations, so to speak.

But in general, I suppose you can save a lot of money when it comes to traveling too. The only real disadvantage I’d say is that a lot of people find it difficult to discipline themselves to be more productive work wise when their place of business and home are in the same vicinity.

  • A lot can depend on what your job actually is. Personally I do work at home on a regular basis and find that I can achieve far more than when I’m in the office. At home there is no chance of walk by meetings or the phone distracting me.

    Space is an important question in this and I agree discipline is a key. I’ve seen many people struggle with making time for themselves and working when based at home.

    On a different tact, I like the idea of not having to go to my office everyday. For one thing it’s better for the environment. I am fortunate I can choose, but I have a job that allows me to do this – I do not run a home business.
