I also enjoy the in-person interaction with students and colleagues. I don't work from home by choice.

I'm the primary caregiver for my wife and every hour I work outside the home I'm out of pocket to an agency.

There are advantages to working from home, however. My schedule is flexible, which works well for me because my wife's schedule is also my own. I also have different times of day when I'm productive outside of the traditional nine-to-five.

Not to mention that I have tasty, home-cooked meals and can watch Netflix over my lunch break.

The disadvantages? You're not going to make as much money and not too many companies will let you work full-time from home so more often then not you work part-time with no benefits. You don't have the support system of a traditional workplace.


Another disadvantage, Tom, at least for me (also a caregiver): the sense on the part of some members of the household that "he's just on the computer back there; go ahead and disturb him. He won't mind."

I'm not an author and I'm not writing for a living, but it does get annoying occasionally to be thought of as available all the time.
