Why Do You Telecommute?

I starting looking for a way to work from home when I was pregnant with my first child. So my primary reason for looking to telecommute was to be able to be a stay-at-home mom but still contribute to the work force and our bank account. I continued to telecommute even after my youngest child started kindergarten because I enjoy being able to be here for my kids on sick days, school holidays, and summer days.

I’m doing a bit of research for an article and I’d love to know why YOU work at home or why you want to! I’m interested in your primary reason, though many of these reasons may certainly interest you. If you don’t see your primary reason listed here, feel free to leave a comment below as to why you telecommute (or are looking to).

And, if you know someone else who either works from home or wants to,
please pass this poll on to them, too!
