Working From Home – The Dark Side Of It

[ad#ad-1]It’s amazing how much work you can get done when you put your mind to it, and you’re left alone to do it. I feel like I accomplished some good work today, not something I usually feel I have done. Working at home with a wife AND 2 kids closeby is a challenge to say the least. Then on top of it you have the nonna and nonno calling every morning to see how the grand children are doing , lol. Running a $600,000 business from home is strange. Everyone thinks you make enough just to “get by”, so I guess they don’t your business too seriously so they feel it’s ok to interrupt you when they need to. If I rented a big office in downtown Vancouver, then I would look like a success I’m sure , haha. It’s funny how appearance is everything. If people know you’re at home they figure you must not be doing very good.

I have always said the fastest way to make more money is to save more money. Why bother paying rent if you don’t have to, seems really stupid to throw $3,000 a month just to play the part of a high roller. People who act like high rollers usually aren’t rolling in anything, except the bus. This is the reason I don’t rent office space, waste of money and very unnecessary. That being said I need to find more quiet surroundings to work from.

Some of the spots I have thought of to use as my office space include the public library, backyard patio (maybe still too close to home), various coffee shops, parent’s basement (doubt that would work well), or B.C.I.T in Burnaby. Hell, I could even work from my Caddy if I needed to, pull up to some random house on a residential street and use their internet access. I was even thinking of working from my garage, good enough for me. I will have to figure out a solution, cause it’s driving me a bit nutso.

Its tough I want to be home but it’s hard to focus, when you have little Stefania (my daughter) sitting on my lap as I make Google ads, and wanting to watch Tree House.

Does anyone have any suggestions where would be a good place to work from that has free wireless internet access? Leave a comment I would love to know!
