There are a lot of positives about the possibilities of working from home. You don't have to deal with traffic in the morning. You might be able to sleep in a little bit longer. You may not even have to worry about your animals using your house as its personal toilet. However, there are some reasons why, for some, working from home may not be the best option. There are a lot of sole proprietors that probably use their home as a means to save on overhead, but it may be costing them in time due to the fact that they can't concentrate. Other things get in the way; the dishes are bothering them, or the trash just smells. Maybe the carpet needs cleaning and the garage hasn't been organized in a while and the lawn needs mowed. For some, it may just be best to rent out an office at a local co-working space.
