Vikram Brahma has over a decade of corporate working experience. By profession, he is a Digital Entrepreneur, Blogger, Writer and YouTuber.
I am learning, hustling, and enjoying my life as a digital entrepreneur. I have seen growth in my productivity and life by working from home. I was a teacher a few months back but then I realized that it is high time to take control of my life and earning.
So, I left my teaching job and started working from home as a digital entrepreneur. I spend 2019 learning online from home and I kept on learning at night. In the beginning, it was tough to work day and night without any reward and financial gain.
As I kept on working I attracted clients and once money kept coming I realized it is possible to earn working from home. I got excited and now I work even harder.
I still have a long way to go but I am thoroughly enjoying my work and productivity each day. So, in this article, I am going to share what are the five major benefits I got after I started working from home.
Easy To Set Daily Goals And Working Hours
Being a digital entrepreneur, the first major benefit is you can set your own goals and working hours. I am using one room in my home as my office. So, I can even open and shut my office as per my wish.
As I am a blogger, content writer, YouTuber, and I work for some clients, so naturally, I have work more than any average person. Since I am trying to build my own business I have work day and night. But the best part is I can set my own goals and working hours.
Less Travelling Stress
I remember when I use to work in Delhi (India) I had to travel a lot. And due to heavy traffic sometimes it used to take more than one hour just to cross 7 km. And I know many people hate spending long hours in traveling but since they don’t have any other options they are working and living in the big city.
Now I stay in a small town and work from home. All those pressure of struggling to reach office on time is all gone. I feel calm and relaxed and concentrate more on my projects without spending a dime on traveling costs.
Freedom Of Location
Another best benefit which I got after working from home is freedom of location. As I am a digital entrepreneur I can work from home but another benefit is I can literally work from anywhere. So, this means I can use any part of my home to work.
For example, recently I was interviewed by another YouTuber and the lighting was not so good in my office. So, for the interview, I used my drawing room and able to use that as my office just for two hours. So, yes there are benefits of working from home.
Better Work And Life Balance
When you are working from home your loved ones know that yes you are a call away. And you are safe within the boundaries of home. It is far easy to have better work and life balance working from home.
For example, suppose during some emergency you have to admit your loved ones to the hospital. But since you are working in an office which is almost 20 km then you will take so much time to reach home.
Now, if you are working from home and if some emergency arises then you can easily take control over the situation. You can work for five to six hours and then even you can take some rest.
You Can Even Avoid Office Politics
Yes, it is true that you will be missing your office days and colleagues. But we all know wherever people are working together there will be some office politics.
But when you work from home you have to complete projects on time and show the results. Seniors will not be happy if you give excuses and increase the timeline.
Due to lockdown, many people have lost their jobs, so I am sure senior management will be interested to retain only those people who can show their worthly by completing the task on time.
Easy To Stay Focused
It is quite easy to concentrate and finish the task fast. Since you will be working from home there will be hardly anyone to distract you. The only thing that can distract you is your poor time management and work ethics.
I found it quite impressive to work on different projects from home. Since I stay in a small town there is hardly any noise population expect during festivals. Not even my family members or friends can distract me. And that’s why I happily enjoy working from home.
I hope this article of mine will give you some insights. I also know there are some drawbacks regarding working from home but I personally found it very helpful. And since I am working on my own projects it is relatively easy to handle overall tasks of work and home. I will definitely suggest working from home is one of the best ways to increase your productively.
