However committed you are to being a homeworker, there may come a time when you decide you are getting too big for your garden office/shed. A piece at Entrepreneur.com looks at going back to a 'real' office, reasons why (family interruptions, loneliness, improved growth potential, increased professionalism, more space to work) and reasons why not (commuting, overheads). It also includes some suggestions for those who want to continue homeworking including:
* moving to a new home with a bigger office or building your own home so you can design your own home office from scratch
* reinventing your present office by hiring a professional organiser to help you make the best use of your space
* turning an unused room in your home into a storage facility, warehouse or a second office for employees
* outsourcing work to other free agents instead of trying to squeeze employees into your already packed space
* using business centers.
