Working at home comes with a set of challenges that other people don't seem to realize. Quite a few people think that it's easy work, that you don't have to work as hard, and that you can do whatever you want, when you want to do it. None of this can be further from the truth. The reality is that there are a couple of categories where working at home fits into; you can be a contractor or an employee. Being a contractor is more common and much harder, there is always a rotation of work to find, more work to do, and different deadlines to meet with conflicting schedules. Being an employee often consists of a set schedule; making deadlines a little easier to manage and quite a few meetings to ensure proper communication; utilizing conferencing services. Either way you go, there is a little more space than working a "traditional" job because of the breaks you can take in your day, but there are many misconceptions that need to be considered before you decide on changing your path.
