Remember the commercial of the woman in a business suit top, pajama bottoms and bunny slippers while on a conference call? Way back when, I used to think that symbolized home office life. Ahhh, the joy of it.
Once I started running my business from home, however, reality set in very quickly!
* The days of commuting to and from a workplace with a defined work schedule are gone.
* The days of being accountable to a “boss” are gone.
* The days of doing “home” stuff while at home and “work” stuff while at work are definitely gone!
In the early days of my business, I would actually feel guilty if the house was not spotless and I was spending too much time in the office (justified by “billable hours”). Or I would feel guilty if the house was clean and the laundry was done, but I wasn’t making enough money.
It’s enough to drive an entrepreneur insane!
