This year, more people than ever have been working from home. While this used to be a relatively rare occurrence, it’s simply become one of the “new normal” things we do. If this is the case for you, or if you’re thinking about starting to work from home, there are some things you might want to think about.
For many businesses, the day-to-day cost of doing work was simply considered to be an overhead expense. Now, though, you’re likely shelling out cash for basic things that are typically provided by an office environment. Your home’s utility costs have likely gone up. You may find that your family needs an upgraded internet plan. The finishes in your home may be receiving more wear and tear than they’ve ever seen before. Plus, your body may not be adapting well to not having a proper office to work from. Investing in quality business furniture may be quite an expense.
