"...Is it important for you to have time for your family, that school holidays are kept free and you have time to show your guests the local sights when they visit? Do you have the space and the discipline to work from home? Would you rather work with people in a formal office or through an informal office share?

"...fact, very few people are all one or all the other - most of us are a mixture of both. When I (Jo) analysed my typical working day I realised I work best alone, not only by myself in an office, but in a whole building. I like to work from home or a small office, but only when no one else is there either, as I do not like being interrupted. Yet I do need daily social input in order to redress the balance.

"... Kids are another matter. They may be the most important reason why you elected to work from home. But you cannot expect work and life to fall into balance because you are home. However, you will be more in control and be in closer proximity to family in times of need or crisis. I ..."
"...I (Colleen) have chosen to limit the hours I work from home to the amount of day- care I was willing to have my son in during his pre-school years. I didn’t see myself juggling child care and working during the same times and didn’t want my son to feel he wasn’t as important as my work. However, one advantage ..."
