Lisa Lozeau, online marketing specialist at LiveOps and a stay-at-home mom, shares some of the things she considered before leaving her full time job to work from home.
We often don't realize just how much it costs to work outside the home, but expenses like gas, a morning coffee, new work clothes, and going out to lunch can add up fast. For new parents, the added cost of childcare can make them wonder why they go to work at all.
Work from home opportunities, like those at LiveOps, can make staying home with your kids more affordable than you think. Here are a few things to consider:
- How much money do you spend working at the office? This is where you can save money working from home! Consider how much you spend on gas, clothing, lunch, and even that morning coffee and trips to the snack machine.
- Save money on childcare. LiveOps independent agents choose the hours they want to provide services. Many moms provide services when their spouse is home in the evening or on weekends, or when the kids are at school.
With LiveOps, independent contractors choose how many hours to work and control their earning potential.
Beyond the financial considerations, think about what working from home would mean to you and your family. For me it meant being able to be the mom I want to be.
