Benefits of working from home

Working from home seems like a far-off dream to many office workers. Here are a few of biggest benefits of working from home:

  • No commute
  • Save money on office rental: Not only do you save money on a rental space, you can also write off a portion of business expenses (like electricity, square footage of your home used, etc.) on your taxes
  • No dress code: Wear yoga pants and bunny slippers every day if you want (of course, client meetings or community events are a big exception here)
