Myth: Working from home is easier than working outside of the home.

Truth: Working from home successfully is usually much harder. You only depend on yourself for your paycheck. You will need to organize your time around your children and family, which is much harder than asking your coworker when they are free for lunch. Working from home takes extraordinary organizational skills and a true commitment from yourself and your family.

Myth: I'll be able to work whenever I want.

Truth: You'll be able to work when you can convince your spouse and children that you need to work. Life doesn't stop because you need to sit at the computer or go to the post office. There are still needs that your family will have and because you are home, you'll be expected to help fulfill those needs.
