Life is better without an alarm clock.

Working from home sounds like a dream… but it comes with its own challenges.

In this week’s episode, we’re discussing the pros and cons of working from home, and how we’ve managed to work from the same home without killing each other (yet). We love working from home, but there are things we miss about traditional work. Enjoy!

It’s ok to set whatever schedule you want — you make the rules here!

In this episode:

  • Things we love about working from home
  • How we take advantage of creating our own schedules
  • How working from home saves us time
  • Things we don’t like about working from home
  • How we deal with the lack of socialization
  • How we deal with the guilt of “not doing enough”
  • How we both work from home without killing each other

As long as you’re moving forward and you have the lifestyle you want to have, that’s all that matters.
