Not only does being a work at home allow you the freedom work when you want, dressed how you want, you can also work where you want. However, your preferred location may not be the best for you. Many WAHMs find it difficult to work where they do not have a structured environment. Others wouldn’t dream of secluding themselves and would much rather work around family. The choice is yours, but there are a couple things you need to think about.
Space – Where you do have ample room to get your work done? If you can manage to fit a desk in the room you want to work in, that is idea for many of those that work at home. Having your own space reduces the chance of important documents or other things getting misplaced. A dedicated area is usually best for most WAHMs.
Productivity – As I mentioned earlier, this will depend on the WAHM in question. Do you need complete – well as much as you can get with the kiddos in the house – in order to focus and get work done?
If so, you may want to choose a location in a room away from the family.
A bedroom usually works great. Even if you don’t have a spare room that you can convert into a home office, just having a chair or desk in a corner can give you the space you need to be productive.
On the other hand, if you are completely content with working around playing kids, the television, and other distractions, a desk in the family room can work just fine.
These are the two main considerations for choosing a work at home location. Depending on your situation, you may find that the area in which you work changes often. Thanks to laptop computers, you can take your work with your anywhere you go. If you need a change in scenery, for example, you can take yourself outside or down to the local coffee shop.
