Working at home has its advantages. Where else can you wear slippers and a bath robe while conducting an important business call? You no longer have to deal with traffic or commuting. Most people find the extra 30 – 45 minutes great for spending additional time with their kids, exercising or catching up on their work.
You also save on gas and insurance. That’s right, some insurance companies offer discounts if you use a vehicle as a “pleasure vehicle” meaning you don’t drive it to and from work. Others benefit as well by having less traffic and pollution to deal with.
Freedom and flexibility are great benefits of working at home especially for moms. You have the opportunity to choose your own hours and schedule. Where else can you take off whenever you please to go to your kids school activities or simply do some quick work around the house? The best benefit of all is having your children with you. You’ve got the peace of mind of knowing that your kids are being well taken care of and are being raised by your standards.
Tax breaks are helpful to most work from home moms. By using part of your home regularly and exclusively as an office, you may be permitted to deduct part of your mortgage, rent and/or utilities. You also may have other business expenses such as supplies, mileage, advertising and equipment to write off.
Although it is not recommended that you work in your pajamas, it is safe to say that operating a business from home will not require business attire. As a result, your wardrobe costs should go down if you do not have to meet with customers or clients in a professional business setting on a daily basis.
