Technology today has built platforms for women around the world to connect and collaborate to create new projects that seemed impossible years ago.

Now, with just a few clicks, women are able to express themselves, showcase their portfolio, build relationships, and attract viewers from all over the world.

One of the many things that the internet has given us is the ability to work from home. No need to go through heavy traffic. No need to wear heels. No need to get off your bed. As long as you deliver results, you’re good.

There are many perks to working from home, especially for women who want to be stay-at-home moms and for women who are building their own businesses. Here are some reasons you should consider taking work from home jobs.

Here are some reasons you should consider taking work-from-home jobs.

You don’t have to go through at least two hours of commute every day

The bad part about having to go to a different location for work is that the time spent just going to work and going back home is not even paid. Instead of using that time to create better work, to work on your passion projects, or to focus on your family, you’re stuck in heavy traffic, hungry and tired.

Working from home won’t require you to go anywhere, as long as you have a steady internet connection. The only travel that it might require you is from your bedroom to your living room.

You can wear anything you want

Unless, of course, if your job requires you to go on video chats with clients – nothing that a blazer can’t fix. Aside from that, you’re good with shorts or pyjamas.

Working from home means you can put yourself in the most comfortable situation possible. Not to sleep, but to be able to optimise your working environment. But if you want to be fashionable and wear power clothes at home, no problem.

Considering Taking Work From Home Jobs? Here's Why You Should!

You don’t have to strategise your absences

This is also beneficial for employers. Some employers do not want to implement work-from-home strategies but they do not realise that this is making them lose more money. Though allowing telecommute jobs will make them lose more direct control over employees, it will also lessen unnecessary absences.

The reason most employees file for an absence is not because they’re actually sick, but because they have to do something else for their personal lives, and they have to take the whole day off because of strict office rules. Telecommuters, however, have more room for flexibility. They can deliver their jobs and do whatever they have to do.

You get to lessen your carbon footprint

No commute, no problem. If more people choose to stay at home jobs, there will be fewer cars on the road.

More possibilities for you to earn the same amount of time

Having to work in the office locks you for at least eight hours, exclusive of commute time. Being able to work from home allows you to build a business from your online freelance work.

Some work asks for 40 hours of your week, while some are good with 20 hours. As long as you are responsible with your time and as long as you deliver top-notch results, handling multiple online jobs will not be a problem.

Some freelance workers really turn their home-based jobs into full-blown businesses by hiring other freelancers and get the job done on commission or on a fixed-pay strategy. Working from home gives you the flexibility to earn more than you would if you stayed in the office.

You can strategise your schedule ahead

As a telecommuter, you are required to be in constant communication with your employer. This is a good practice because you get to foster professional relationships and earn people’s trust because you always have the opportunity to talk to them firsthand.

Once you have built a good reputation and impression to your employers, you can start talking about the flexibilities of your job. For example, if you are planning to go a one-week vacation, you can ask your employer to double your job the week before and/or after or to send you assignments for that week ahead.

Most importantly, it allows you to spend time with your family

Work-from-home jobs must be considered for mothers who still want to contribute financially to the family. As long as they are able to send quality results, they won’t have to hire a nanny for their kids. They will be the ones who will prepare their food, pick them up from school, and tuck them into bed because they’re not somewhere else, spending time with their officemates.

Consider working from home. There are pros and cons and you must see if it works for you.
