Success is defined as the achievement of something desired, intended or attempted. When considering working from home, count the cost:
- Is what you are doing now something you see yourself doing in the future?
- Is what you you are doing now producing for you?
- Are you happy where you are?
- If you decide to work from home, do you have enough in savings to cover your expenses until your work from home job begins paying off?
For those without a source of "protective" income, perhaps consider work at home as a form of residual income and then if all pans out, you can move slowly into working from home full time. As a rule of thumb, don't quit your day job until your work from home business is producing enough income to cover what your day job was covering, for at least 9 months.
