Working From Home Is Still Working
I recently restructured my whole business so I could work from home and be home more for my children. Most everyone in my life is very supportive of this, and I’m quite content with my decision. With that being said, I am still having the same problem I did in the past where a few friends insist on dropping in unannounced or calling multiple times a day when I’m working from home. It’s almost like they think I’m just lounging around with nothing to do, when in fact I’m probably busier now than before since I am working remotely from home. I know they probably wouldn’t do this if I had a job where I had a boss and was chained to a desk from 9 to 5, but then I wonder if maybe they would? They have jobs of their own and I wouldn’t ever dare to do this to them. So is this just a matter of them being selfish and having no regard for the work I do, just because I do it from home? Has anyone else experienced this problem?
