Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 4.41.21 PMOne of the reasons many professionals start an online bookie agent business is so that they can work from home. Working from home is an advantage that many bookmakers enjoy.

But, as with all advantages, there are downsides to working from home. Check out three of those downsides.

Lack of Focus

This must be the biggest potential negative to working at home. Lack of focus can be an issue for many professionals, whether those professionals work from home or not.

Just think about the lack of focus that comes about when working from home?  Since it’s a home, more importantly, your home, all the comforts of home, television, stove, your fridge with that 6-pack of Newcastle, etc. are within a hop, skip, or a jump.

Organized individuals are more successful individuals. Being organized is one of the most important aspects of running a PPH business.

By its very nature, most homes are somewhat in disarray. Should you have children, disorganization is a given. Another word for disorganization is inefficiency. Inefficient business soon die.

Luckily for agents, there are reports and tools available to help agents continue to be organized. The PayPerHead dashboard itself was created in the most organized possible way.

Not Setting Time Aside for Home Life

One’s home life is incredibly important. That’s why it’s imperative that online bookie agents set aside time for their home lives.

When working from home, it’s easy to become distracted by, well, home. This is especially true if small children are running around.

The key, like what’s written above, is to set aside time for home life. By doing this, most agents should find the right motivation to finish their work when they must.
