Workspace is important
It can get lonely
It is hard to take a break
Motivating yourself is hard
This one should have been a no brainer, but I have learned that motivating yourself can be extremely difficult. When I was working full time I only had two or three hours per night for my blog and I feel as though I accomplished a lot more in those 2-3 hours than I do in a whole day now! Sitting at my desk at 9am knowing I have the whole day ahead of me means that I find myself looking at Facebook too much, or spending way too much time on Pinterset instead of cracking on. To combat this I am actually reducing my working hours to just 4 a day in a trial to see if this helps to make me more productive! So far, so good!
Despite some of these downsides, I would not change anything about working from home! Being your own boss comes with so many fantastic benefits!
