Work at Home Tips

Being a work at home mom isn't for everyone. But, if you're going to do it, you're going to have to take a few steps to make sure that you do it well. Below are some work at home tips that work well for me.

Create an office space. You might think that working at home means you can sit with your laptop o your couch in front of the television. That might work for some, but for most of us, work has to be separated from the rest of life's events. Even if you don't have a separate room for your office, try to make an area in your house that is devoted just to your work.

Set a schedule. One of the great things about working at home is that you get to set your own schedule. You need to take that schedule seriously if you expect others to take it seriously. After all, if you don't respect your work time, why would anyone else?

Break your work down into manageable time slots. Recognize that part of working at home means you have to do it all. You'll be the accountant, the public relations and even the labor force. Don't forget to schedule time slots for all of these functions. Whether you do a bit every day or have specific days for each function, scheduling them in time chunks means that you can get into a routine, which leads to better performance and higher levels of organization.
