With the ongoing recession, more people are working from home than ever before, whether because they find self-employment an easier option than trying to find a traditional position or because their employers are trying to scale down their overheads as much as possible -including spending little money on office space. While it can be nice to show up to work in pajamas every day, working from home certainly has its disadvantages as well.
As a freelance writer, I can certainly relate with all of these issues. And if you’re freelancing in the U.S., you have the additional drawback of having to pay a fortune in taxes -at least 25% of your income.
While many people, myself included, still find working from home worthwhile despite the drawbacks, these are all things you should consider before making the decision for yourself.
