Why working from home is the best!

Work from home cover

Warning: sarcasm.

(Don’t even consider coworking, why pay when working from home is free!?)

 

1. You can stay in your pajamas all day long.

Why would you think about what to wear, what shoes to grab, how to style your hair, plaster on makeup, or whatever else makes you look…presentable? Nobody will see you anyway! You don’t have to take a shower, don’t need to shave, you don’t even have to brush your teeth (gross)! Isn’t that amazing? You can stink and look like crap, literally, all day long!

WAYWARD CONCLUSION: A coworking space is not a great idea.

2. You can play with your pets and do laundry all day long.

Isn’t that cool? You just started to work – or joined a call – and your cat jumps on your lap and PURR-PURR? Or your dog looks up at you with those emotive eyes asking to play or go for a walk? Wonderful! You can pet them instead of working. They need attention… They need a lot of attention. And when they finally sleep, you can do your laundry. Because why not? Don’t get distracted by work!

WAYWARD CONCLUSION: A coworking space is not a great idea.

3. You can sleep all day long.

But, you can also be awake here and there for a couple of hours and then take naps. I mean, you must make a call or two, or sign-in. But then, why not nap? That is a lot of naps per day. How about a game, how many naps can you sneak in!? It’s fun. Sleep, work, sleep, work, sleep, work, sleep… Easy.

WAYWARD CONCLUSION: A coworking space is not a great idea.

4. You can work alone all day long.

There is nothing better than being alone and feeling lonely! Right!? Why would you interrupt your placid working trance by some new cool people to interact and collaborate with? Why pretend like you wanna talk when at home you don’t ever have to talk to anyone? Who cares about friends, collaboration with like-minded people, learning from others, networking, team building, or even hearing something new? Not when you can just enjoy yourself, talk to yourself, all alone at home.

WAYWARD CONCLUSION: A coworking space is not a great idea.

5. You melt into your chair and never move.

Never needing a change you sit in the same spot, in the same home you live in, forever! Especially if you have your “home office”. You can bring your clients there, right? Let’s hope they will still think you are successful while meeting in your living room. Let’s pretend your commercial address is Suite 200, also known as your upstairs guest room.

Go ahead and buy a printer, sometimes it works when you have ink. Buy your own coffee too! Why share, you know the best way to make Folgers bearable, right? Who needs fancy dedicated fiber internet… you know, with guaranteed uptime? You can just pay for your own mediocre internet at home, it might not drop that video call…

WAYWARD CONCLUSION: A coworking space is not a great idea.
