Work from Home Assessment

This excerpt is from the Women For Hire book, Will Work from Home, that you can find at your local bookstore:Working from home has its pros and cons. It’s a lifestyle for many, but not everyone. Think it’s time for you to take the plunge? Invest about five minutes and learn some valuable facts about yourself. Are you ripe and ready to bear the fruits of at-home labor? Or do you have some growing yet to do? No grades here, but let’s find out. Circle the most appropriate response, then rate yourself.

1. Have you been considering the idea of working from home for six months or longer?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really


2. If you’ve told anyone else about your idea, has the response been positive, as in “Wow, that sounds perfect for you?”

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

3. Have you sought out anyone who works successfully from home and asked questions about how it really works?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

4. Do people (including yourself) consider you a disciplined self-starter who enjoys working independently without constant feedback?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

5. Once you get an idea in your head, do you typically pursue it until you’ve achieved it? Are you persistent?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

6. Do you consider your workplace your primary source of friends and social connections?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

7. Do you constantly crave the company of others? For example, do you feel lonely after a few hours at home alone on a weekend?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

8. Do you have strong powers of concentration and an ability to ignore distractions?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

9. Do you consider yourself a highly-organized person who knows how to manage time and tasks?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

10. Do you typically set goals, make lists and in other ways measure your progress?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not really

Rate yourself. As promised, no grades! But if you’ve answered “no” to Questions 6 and 7, and “yes” to all the others, you’re well on the way to working from home. If not, don’t fret. This test is not a black-and-white predictor of future success. Use this as a mini-barometer for deciding if you’re really ready to stay home.
