Working from home is not a new concept; in fact it existed even during the Renaissance and Middle Ages. Some surveys suggest that around 40 percent of the total working population is either self-employed or works from home. This is expected to see a rise of 20 percent each year.

We may wonder if working from home a good option for everyone? Maybe not! It is not possible for everyone to maintain discipline or even handle being isolated socially. It is also likely that everyone is not well-organized. On the other hand it is possible to create a very good work and personal life balance when we work from home. There are a few companies who offer a compressed work week system with a telecommute schedule. You may have 10-hour work days with three days off every week.
