For many working from home is not a dream, it’s a reality. Before you give notice to your current employer, there are a few things you should take into careful consideration to make sure that a home-based job is best for you.

Try it out on a smaller scale

If you have any doubts at all with things like whether or not you can make enough money or if you’ll be able to break free from the family to put enough hours in, you may want to try it out first. If you have vacation time available, take a week and give it a practice run. It may be that you can’t focus on your own or that you’re distracted with thoughts about things like your home and the children. Doing a trial before making the actual leap from the office to your home is time wisely spent.
