Working from home requires much more organization and self-discipline than working in an office. Not only do you have to do all of the everyday tasks yourself, but you also have to resist the many temptations that home offers. If there's a child at home, you have to multitask and figure out how to both have time to take care of the child's needs while also having uninterrupted work time. Unlike when you work from an office, you are never actually "off work." You don't come home to have your relaxation time, because home is your office. I don't recommend it for everyone.

But there are certainly benefits for those who are organized and self-disciplined enough to handle it. As you said, the money you make is yours, and usually the amount of work you do reflects directly on the amount of money you make. You do have the possibility of more flexibility, though I recommend keeping a mostly firm work schedule. Also, you get to decide your own title.

It would proably be more fun if they gave you different colored belts with your no-motions. It would be fun to get promoted to green-belt attorney, or brown belt attorney. Still, the only thing anybody off the street would see is that you are not a black belt.
Think I'll stay home and work on this phone and this computer. If I work hard and steady every day and work my marketing plan like I should I'll eventually get where I'm going.
Oh wait...gotta pass the bar first.
S'cuse me. Gotta get back to work.
