What’s your dream job? For me, I want to work from home and make pretty websites. It’s as simple as that. I like being my own boss, and I like seeing how my work translates into income. I hate being stuck at an office all day.
I really don’t spend that long on the internet just playing around (unless I get stuck on Pinterest!), so even a job with a lot of downtime and internet access isn’t that appealing. I prefer to do a job, and when I finish, that’s it. If I can do it in 4 hours instead of 8, then I shouldn’t have to sit around (or drag the project out) for 8 hours because those are “work hours”. I want to go home when I’m finished!
Working from home means that I can do this. If I have something to work on and I can knock it out in the morning, then I can spend all afternoon doing whatever I want! I love it!
Of course, it also means that sometimes I end up working late or on weekends because I wasn’t able to finish something that fast. It’s hard to say “no” when your office is in your living room. Once I get a little busier I plan to actually implement “work hours” so my evenings and weekends are free. I don’t know how well this will really work, and doing web administration means I may very well have some weekend repairs and emergencies from time-to-time, but for the most part, I’d like to “be available” for normal work hours, and do my work inside of those hours, but if I finish early, it’s playtime!
Here are some recent work-from-home related things I’m loving:
- Kaylah shares 3 tips for staying motivated while working from home.
- Kaelah has some great pics in this post of her daily to-do lists. She also has a new PR + Marketing e-book which I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on.
What’s your dream job? How would you like your work schedule? “Normal” hours? Night owl?
