Consulting from home

Consulting from home isn’t quite the same as working in an office. Some people worry that, if they start working from home, they’ll feel isolated and depressed. Well, some people would feel that way anyway, but isolation is an important factor to consider. Rather than using it to rule out becoming a consultant, look at it as a consultant should. In other words, identify the problem and work out a plan for managing it. A financial planner I know has a rule that he must leave his home for an hour every day — he’s on his way to being independently wealthy at age 40, so he must know what he’s doing. So, listen to him and work out a plan for becoming a well connnected, non-isolated consultant.
