What are the advantages of working from home?

Working from home can have a lot of  advantages. Let me list down the 3 advantages of working from home:

Being at home and taking care of your family.

Ever since I had my second child, I was wondering if I can just quit my work and be a stay at home mom. But I know that I need to continue working to be able to sustain my family now that we have 2 kids. Until I realized that there’s an option to work from home. That gives the best of both worlds: Being with your family and earning at the same time. It was always my dream to be always present at my child’s school activities, personally take care of them especially when they are sick and not having to worry when you are away.

Use the skills that you have.

When we apply for a job in the corporate world, it’s hard to find the one that really suits us. We tend to land in a position that is not related to our degree. However, in freelancing, you can choose the type of job that you want. You can use the skills that you have. You find the job that you would be passionate about. Indeed when you enjoy your work, you are never really working. As for me, I have studied Computer Science which makes me interested in Web Design, so I’m glad that I can finally pursue my dream of being a Web Designer.

Freelancing has more to offer.

Most freelancers I know earn a lot more than the salary of an employee. In the corporate setup, although you can negotiate at the start of the recruitment process, the company will still have the final decision on your monthly salary. On the other hand, freelancers can set their own salary. They can decide how much they want to earn and when they can increase their rate. They can even have multiple clients, therefore double or triple their earnings.

What are the disadvantages of working from home?

Working from home can have a lot of advantages, but it can also have some disadvantages. So before you decide on shifting to this career, you have to weigh in on the pros and cons of freelancing.

No longer entitled to free Healthcare coverage.

Most companies offer free Health care coverage to employees and their dependents. On the other hand, freelancers may not have this automatic benefits, but there are certain Healthcare organizations where you can get your own healthcare coverage for you and your family. Check this blog from Mommy Tasha about HMO for freelancers.

You need to handle your own payment of Taxes, SSS, Philhealth, and other Government obligations.

Payment of your Taxes, SSS, PhilHealth, Pagibig and all other government obligations is being done by the HR group of most companies. But in freelancing, you have to handle all of these on your own. When it comes to taxes, there’s a site called Taxumo which you can use to easily pay your taxes.

No Pension or Retirement benefit.

There’s no retirement benefit for Freelancers, but you can opt to find an investment plan where you can save up for your retirement. In fact, saving up on these investments can give you a lot more returns than what employees get from their pension or retirement benefits.

You need a lot of discipline.

When we’re at the office, we automatically get that working mood or sometimes we’re forced to do so because we have a boss that checks on what we’re doing. In freelancing, however, we have the freedom to choose the time we want to work which means we need to discipline ourselves to get to work. So in order to do this, we need to have proper time management. It would be best to stick to a time schedule just like what we do in the office.

Less social life.

For an introvert like me, this is a no problem. But for people who are used to having people around, working alone may not be a comfortable setup for them. The good side of freelancing, however, is that you now have time freedom which means, more time to go out and hang out with your friends. Plus, there are a lot of events for freelancers offering live workshops where you can meet fellow freelancers. So you can still get to socialize with people whenever you want to.

These are some of the disadvantages of working from home. As you see, there’s always a workaround solution for every problem. And when you come to think of it, these disadvantages cannot exceed the advantages working from home can give.

Why having a Virtual Assistant is good for your business?

Have you ever thought of hiring a Virtual Assistant? Do you want to know if having one is good for your business? Would you rather handle your business alone so you can save up on manpower costs? Is it better to hire an employee to handle the tasks? These could be one of the questions that business owners might ask when it comes to handling their tasks.

 

Let me share to you the reasons why having a Virtual Assistant or VA is good for your business.

You have more time to focus on the important matters

Having a Virtual Assistant would give you more time to think of the major aspects of your business. You can outsource most of your administrative tasks to your VA. These tasks can range from Web design, Social Media Management, Data entry, Transcription and many more. As long as a VA can do it online, they can handle these tasks for you. Thus, you can have more time to run your business operations.

Save on Manpower and equipment costs

You might be thinking of hiring an in-house employee to handle your tasks. But, hiring a VA can be a better option. You can save on manpower costs. Unlike having a regular employee that needs a regular monthly income, a VA gets paid with an hourly or fixed rate. Your VA gets paid for every hour spent only on doing the tasks. You may also agree on a fixed rate for each assigned project.

 

You also save on equipment and office rental costs. VA’s invests in their own PC or Laptop and internet connection. So, there is no need for you to rent an office space or buy an equipment.

You gain relaxation and experience lesser stress

When you have a VA, you have more time for yourself. You can go and take vacations because a VA can take care of your tasks. You will also feel less stressed because the amount of workload is being shared. You can have more time to relax and feel calm in running your business.

It gives your business a chance to grow

Having a reliable VA will give you great benefit. They should be someone who understands your needs and can help in making your business successful. It could be a challenge in finding the right person, but there are certain VA’s with this kind of qualities. They are someone who can give you suggestions and provide recommendations for your business growth.

 

As much as having a Virtual Assistant is good for your business, these same benefits are what VA is also looking for. Freelancers can also enjoy the following benefits:

  • Have more time to spend with family
  • Save on transportation costs
  • Enjoy relaxation and feel less stressed
  • Have a chance to grow their skills and self-development.

Being a Virtual Assistant is also an advantage as much having one for your business does.

 

If you need a Virtual Assistant for your business, I would be very glad to work for you. These are the same benefits that I can give to you. I am committed to helping business owners like you in your day to day tasks and support you in growing your business.
