The global workplace is changing. More people are “escaping the cubicle” and working out of their homes or the neighborhood coffee shop.

The remote workspace is especially attractive to women for the potential flexibility it affords to fulfill their many roles. We set out to see how these work-from-home women were doing.

Read The Work-From-Home Woman Wellbeing Report to get our complete analysis.

These women were candid with their assessment. Let’s just say that the 4 Hour Work-Week is still a pie in the sky dream.

    • Thanks for your help with the survey. What I did not anticipate was how people felt put down by their family and friends because they worked from home.

  • I found this article and the stats/data collective very useful and informative. I, myself, am a mompreneur and I have tele-commuted. I found significant changes (for the better) in my mood, health and relationships. I am much happier and having two children at home, I love the flexibility being at home offers. I also liked seeing the comparison amongst other work from home moms. Great read!
