I've been self employed since 1998 and have never wanted to go back to working for an employer. Some weeks I may need to put in more hours, but I decide which hours I work and when I have time off. As I get older, I frequently wake up very early, so some days I'm using my computer for work before 6am. I don't work late at night and I always have breaks during the day, when I go out for some fresh air and exercise, do some cooking and get other things done. The only downside to working from home is that you need to convince your family and friends that you are not always available for a chat and there at times when you should not be disturbed. You also have to pay your tax when your total annual income is above a certain level. Do you work for yourself or are you thinking about being your own boss?
