Over the last years, more and more people work remotely. There is a lot of reasons for that and some drawbacks to that type of work. Let’s focus on the main reasons You can consider working remotely. I group those in some categories of reasons to more order
Save money on office rent
When You are an entrepreneur or even an established business owner, You could want to focus on Your product or services and put your money in development instead of a fancy office. You can easily save a lot of money on the office rent, depending on that where you are based. There are a lot of tools that can help You do Your business at home even if You have a small team to work with.
Save money on fuel and car maintenance
Depending on where You live and how far You have to drive to the office You can save a lot of money. Remember that costs are not only on fuel but also repairs bills and lease. A lot of people don’t count the costs of using a car accurately enough. Most time costs to get to the office every day is much larger than You expect
Stop wasting your time on traffic
That could be the most crucial reason to give up an office. Seriously, imagine how many things You can do in one up to two hours daily instead of waste in the traffic? Of course, there is a lot of solution to use that time quite productive, but it never will be as productive as working in the proper setup, home or office. … even if autonomous cars will be ordinary.
Perfect up Your only workspace
To do that, You definitely have to have a dedicated room just for work in a home, but if You have that possibility, You can go far ahead in productivity. You have full control of that space and You can set it just once, not twice, for office and home because, be honest, a lot of entrepreneurs, managers, or just ambitious people work at home anyway.
You can work whenever You want and be a productive longer time in a day
Some of You may don’t like it, but only to have the possibility to work in full equipment workspace, set up precisely as You prefer is a big deal. You don’t have to work when You aren’t ready or when You have something other, much more important to do at a particular moment. You can do Your magic any time You prefer. Of course, it can be tricky and potentially dangerous, but it can be very beneficial.
What’s change about working from home since the COVID-19 pandemic
Well, it’s easier to say what’s doesn’t change and I believe there is just a beginning. The World simply won’t be the same anymore.
Of course, the are some people who work remotely for a long time. Freelance IT workers: programmers, copywriters, Graphic designers, and a lot of Social Media Managers. But even for them, something’s changing. They now just anybody else.
