Your employer isn't paying you to look after kids or parents etc, they're paying you to work for them. if you're not, you're abusing the trust they put on you (and this is what a LOT of homeworkers do), and it's one of the main reasons why they're dropping it.


Took my other half ages to realise just because i was at home didn't mean i could go to the shop, look after the kid, do the cleaning etc.
A successful home worker is one that treats there working day the same as if they'd have commuted to an office.

I worked at home for IPS and I didn't let anything bother me. I shut the door, put on my noise cancelling headphones and went to work. Had enough snacks in the room to get me through the few hours I'd sit down and had a good playlist going and I was good to go for hours.

Seems to me that your job isn't very important if you can telecommute. ;)


That's not always true, I know, but I have find that true for many jobs. I want to feel needed, myself, and a part of the team. I can't do that from home.
