Working from home is a dream for many people. For others it has been forced upon them due to a job loss or a company going out of business.

If you are thinking about working from home here are 3 things I think you will like.

1. The 30 second commute. I first heard this phrase several years ago and it has always stuck with me.

It make take you longer to get to get to work than 30 seconds depending on how big your house. However you get the idea!

You do not have to get in your car and battle traffic and drive to work every day. Getting from your coffee pot to your home office is something anybody can navigate very quickly.

2. You are the boss. This has its benefits and its drawbacks.

You will have no problem going to work everyday if you are entrepreneurial by nature. If you are the type of person who has relied on a boss to tell you what to do then becoming self-employed may be a challenge.

When you are the boss you get to work when you want and set your own schedule. However, there is no guaranteed paycheck and when you take time off it can affect how much money you make.

One nice thing about working from home for yourself is the hours that you keep. Depending on your lifestyle the traditional eight to five job can go by the wayside.

There are many examples of Internet marketers to prefer to work at night and sleep during the day. Some people prefer to work a couple hours at a time and then take breaks.

Because you are your own boss it really is up to you to set your own schedule. Just understand a lack of effort will really affect your income.

3. No ceiling on your income. When you have a job you know exactly how much money you are going to make.

You can make as much money as you want when you work from home for yourself. For example, as an Internet marketer you can add another website to increase your income.

If you are in network marketing you can go out and enroll new distributors to make more money. If you do any type of affiliate marketing you can increase your income by completing more specified actions from your affiliate merchant or by selling more products.

These are 3 things that are very attractive when you work at home for yourself. Many people dream of doing it for themselves so they can make more money. Ultimately they fall in love with the work at home lifestyle.
