Home Biz Myth Busted - You Work From Home So You Must Be Free All The Time
HomeBizNotes.com Home Biz Myth:
You work from home, so you must be free all the time
Kristen King operates Kristen King Freelancing, a successful home based freelance writing and editing business.
“You work from home, so you must be free all the time for anything I need because you’re not doing anything important anyway.” If one more person expects me to drop everything and do something for them just because I’m home and they’re too self-absorbed to realize that working from home actually involves WORKING, I’ll scream!
Yes, it’s more flexible than, say, commuting to an office somewhere, but it’s not like I sit around eating bonbons all day. :]
HOME BIZ MYTH BUSTED!!
(Note from Yvonne: I still!! need one of those fancy stamps from MythBusters!!… still looking ;)
Thanks Kristen. This one really strikes a chord with me too. Well, you’re not at work, are you? Yes! :)
