I run my office out of my home. I have thought many times about renting out an office space in a strip mall where I could probably be more productive as a business man, but I’ll give up a little business in order to maintain my home office.
Yesterday was another reason why I do it. My oldest daughter got pretty sick and we had to take her to the ER at about 11:00 pm. One of the worst feelings as a kid is when you’re sick, you’ve just had doctors and nurses sticking needles in you, is to come home and have you’re parents leave you with someone else why they go off to work, or they make you feel guilty because they had to call in to the office and take off work.
My kids won’t know that. Tha’t just another reason I work from home.
