So, I quit my office job and I’ve been working by myself from home for a week now. I have to say that I am loving it so far! Who else here works from home, for how long and do you like it?

Good to hear ;) Been working from home since August 2008 and still surviving ;) Best part is not having to wake up early and sit in traffic. Downside is you can get incredibly lazy and end up working at strange hours. For the first few months I started working more at night and almost turned vampire when I started going to sleep when the sun started rising lol.. but I’ve learnt that’s not so healthy so sticking to a normal human sleep cycle now. As long as you got a enough work and can live comfortably then your sorted.. good luck!

lol Amazing..I thought it was only me that did that, nice to know I’m not a weirdo.

As DS says set yourself a routine and keep yourself busy and you’ll be fine, best of luck!

Also worked from home, haven’t worked in an office since before uni (5ish years) and hope to never do so again. Just make sure you disclipline yourself with your time else you’ll lose productivity…

I do, it’s the best experience ever but beware you may easily get distracted by surrounding things. I still have to fight procrastination everyday

Great decision michael, only a few people allows themselves to be free!

I do work from my home since JAN 2006 (unexpectedly!) and really like it. It is a life changing relief / freedom from routines and conditionings. I don’t think I will ever seek for a job or expand business.

I also work from home. I started around 2 years ago and I also love it, the only and the main downside is that you are always at work ;/ and you have to discipline yourself.

Never worked in an office… I’ve always refused any offer… also the best ones.

Freedom :)

This year I shift to work 4 days a week from my home, sometime i get crazy because I can work easily 12-16 hours straight, it explained why i use to trash MSFX at the past so much, I had to release some kind of steam :P and he was very easy target . But I travel a lot, so I got lucky there.
