To those who experience the daily monotony of a 9-5 job role, working from home is the embodiment of professional success and achievement. From the outside looking in, independent contractors and self-employed individuals have achieved a semblance of professional independence and been afforded the opportunity to create an ideal work-life balance.

I have a home office and in the past I have been at different co-working spaces. I will soon start to spend a part of my worklife at a new office space, combining my social media work with the small businesses located at this place. I will work on my stuff and market this small business place at the same time. I welcome tips on interior design of the workspace. We will also arrange networking events for small business owners.

IMO, working from home is challenging.

I work from home and my constant battle is how to STOP WORKING. As my work and life collide in my living room, working is becoming a habit, rather than, well, a work.

I try to separate my work and living space, but to tell you the truth, I miss the constant distractions coming from the mail man, my kids, my plumber and my craving for reality show on TV :D

Hi Lewis,

Avoiding multi-tasking can be the greatest challenge when working from home. Depending upon the kind of business you operate, focusing on one task at a time can be nearly impossible. There are also the many potential distractions of the home environment. A very special kind of discipline is needed when work from home, though, of course, the benefits are also considerable.

Working from home isn't for everyone and it does take a lot of willpower to be productive constantly throughout the day. I am very lucky that I have no family distractions but it's still not easy and I do tend to work very long hours. Something I hope to cut back on in 2013 :) Thanks for sharing on Bizsugar.com
