I’ve been working from home for over 15 years now – but then, I’m a self-employed sole proprietor. Most of the people I know work for small/medium businesses, corporations or government entities. For a long time, I was the envy of all those friends and relatives who had to get all dressed up and fight traffic to make it to their workplaces on time every day. However, over the past several years, more and more of them have joined me in the ranks of “home workers” – without giving up their jobs and venturing out on their own.
