Do you have a backup plan if your boss says “no?”
Can you commute to work? Public Transportation?
Or move closer to your work?
Just to save yourself a bit of money. 🙂

My girlfriend was a VISTA in WI for a bit, but she wasn’t able to work from home while she was doing that.

I think working from home just requires strict financial budgeting, especially at first.
I’ve also heard that time management becomes a big priority, as it’s very easy to get distracted.

I don’t work from home but like you, I find it an appealing prospect. It’s just not practiced in my field. :

@QueenOfSerendip:  I do work from home, but I think you already know that. I can tell you more about how that happened in a PM, but I don’t like posting those details publicly (which you also know, lol).

I work from home 3 days a week, go to the office 2 days a week. I work in telecommunications and what I do is not “customer-facing”, but rather technical behind-the-scenes stuff for commerical accounts. I essentially keep orders on track and make sure service gets installed on time, etc.

Sounds exciting, huh?!

The company I work for is just structured this way. Only a select few positions (mainly customer service-type) are in the office full time. In fact, they are the minority as far as I know. I was working in education before this, but was miserable.  I was working for a for-profit tech school as a registrar, and the terrible hours, terrible boss, terrible all around everything was stressing me the hell out. A good friend told me her tennis buddy was looking for some ‘fresh blood’ so I jumped at the opportunity. I’m learning a lot about a new field and I really like working on the more technical stuff- its a challenge.
