How To Convince Your Boss To Let You Work From Home

    In this day and age, with communication being to easy through mobile technologies, it makes sense to work out of the office.

    If you are able to do your job from home, why can’t you? What is the benefit of traveling upwards of an hour each day, through stressful traffic, to enter the distraction-full environment that most offices are?

    Tim Ferriss has written a book called The 4-Hour Work Week and writes a lot of good articles at his blog. Earlier this year he was interviewed by Yahoo Travel to answer these questions:

    • What are the biggest misconceptions people have about work, and making time for travel?
    • So what is the best way to negotiate your way into a mobile work lifestyle?
    • Many people often can’t stop thinking about work minutiae, even when they’re far away from the traditional office setting. How do you get your mind, and not just your body, out of the office?

    Something that I’ve been working by the last year is similar to what Tim mentions. The fact that I can live very comfortably, and leisurely, if I work for a day-to-day income rather than a retirement income makes more sense for me.
