Are you an executive? Do you LOVE getting dressed and leaving your home to go to work? Do you LOVE communting to the airport to deal with crowds, hotels and the challenges of travel?
Well I don't.
About five (5) years ago, I started calculating the tremendous costs of NOT working from home. I gathered a lot of data, and when I put pencil to paper, the hard costs of just getting to work were staggering. A professional wardrobe, automobile expenses, travel expenses, and my precious time as a business leader... so much waste. Like you, I was spending many thousands of dollars every month, not working hard...just working to GET READY to work...commuting!
Not only was it silly of me to waste the time, it was the missed productivity that was the real killer. A one day trip out of town resulted in a waste of 80% of my time time. And a two day trip reduced time wasted to about 70%. Hits to my productivity were a silent but deadly
Then add in the cost to my family who missed me while I was gone, the stress dealing with travel, the challenges eating properly while with clients or employees, and the missed workouts. Ugg.
