Everything Must be Balanced
There’s no such thing as work-life balance. There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences.
You must have the aptitude and the disposition to start or transition into a home based business environment. Its not enough to have the basic knowledge of your desired industry but you must have the self discipline and consistency that is required to maintain a home based environment. Its not for everybody. Not everyone can handle the isolation that working from home brings. Not everyone has the self discipline that it requires when you have to go it alone. If you are someone who constantly needs affirmation and direction, then having a home based environment might take some getting used to. If you are one who readily accepts change and are willing to “bend a little”, then you are a perfect fit. It may take some time but you will adapt well to a changing environment.
Finding balance in a work from home environment may be more challenging than the work itself. You have to find balance when it comes to any changing environment. If you are now at home and you have a small space that you can use as your office then that will be suitable for what you need. You really don’t need a huge space, unless you have a personal desire to wide open spaces, a small area will work just fine.
Finding balance may be as simple as having space for work, space for your entertainment, and a little space for everything else. If you are living in a 1200 square foot home then you have sections you can use so that each room is adequate for what your needs are. You don’t necessarily need a huge mansion to perform your work like you think you might need. Having boundaries in your work and personal life will determine how well you succeed at a home environment. You want to be able to perform at your best so you can deliver the best results possible.
Finding balance if you are doing a side hustle can be a bit more difficult because you now have to balance the boss environment with your own personal development. You have to answer to yourself and to your superiors as well. Creating boundaries for these work types while managing to have time for yourself takes time. Its an adjustment when you have several parts of yourself and you want to be able to express each one in the best situation possible.
Another benefit to working from home is that you are not tied to the typical 9 to 5 which all depends on factors like what time zones is your team located in , what is your industry, and other uncontrollable factors. A 9 to 5 EST is different in a global environment. You have to be able to adapt to these factors because they are contingent upon the success of you business. I knew that I wanted to start an online business and become an Internet Entrepreneur. Their was NO if, ands, or buts.
My passion for independence, freedom, and learning was what brought me to the Internet in the first place. I saw so much potential and then some. I wanted to be able to live out loud and have a profitable thriving business while making an impact on the world. I have been able to do so and working from home for me is a God send. I am grateful to be able to do what I love and make a sizable income from it. What more could you ask for! If you choose to make a living from your passion on the Internet look at the pros and cons and if the pros outweigh the cons then proceed ahead with confidence!
As long as you are able to commit to deadlines and working with teams globally, you are not going to have much of a problem. You will be able to adapt to a changing environment like the Internet and working from home. Adjustments like anything else comes with the package. You have to commit yourself to educating yourself on what is going on in the world around you. The Internet is a great way to stay informed and build a brand that can make you income for years to come. You have to be bold and have a strong desire to see yourself succeed and let no one stand in the way of your success!
