But it can be tough to work from home. For one thing, even the smallest storm can knock the power out for hours. You might also find yourself dealing with someone doing construction work on your house, at which point you just need to get away to think clearly. And, of course, there's the top reason most telecommuters need to get away from home...
When distractions are an issue, you have a few options. Your local library probably has free Wi-Fi and quiet places where you can work. Here's a picture I took while working at a local library last winter.
You also have the usual coffee shop option. Panera has Wi-Fi, as well, as do some fast food restaurants, including McDonald's and Krystal's. Although I'm not sure Krystal's would be considered a good work environment...
A new option is a co-working space. You'll pay a fee, but you'll also have all the amenities of an office, including a break room. You'll be surrounded by the same annoying people you'd deal with in an office, with NO walls between you.
Then, of course, there's always the option of creating an awesome home office. Especially if you have a room with a good door in your house. Preferably a room that's soundproof.
Could you ever work from home? How would you handle distractions?
