How to work from home

So you quit or job and choose to work at home. To help you get started, let me share some  pointers from Matthew Stibbe, at his blog Bad Language he talks about his tips on working from home. Compared to his big office, he said working from home has its advantage and freedom, but there are couple of things that need to be taken care of:

  • Separate phone and fax.
  • Keep work and home separate.
  • Stay green.
  • Office stuff.
  • Business class IT.
  • Everywhere is your office.
  • Be businesslike.
  • Be like a small big business.
  • Build your network.
  • Insurance and tax.

“Build your network” is really important, Matthew emphasized. Learn more from him through his blog How to work from home – [Bad Language]
