Professional in Pajamas
101 Tips for Working from Home
I'd just finished writing Professional in Pajamas when the pandemic arrived and working from home went from being a choice to a requirement for many.
Then and now, the ability to work from home has been embraced by employees, contractors, freelancers and small business people alike. It offers the flexibility and freedom to organize your day, work where you choose, and focus on what you need to achieve. There is no hot-desking, commuting, or a boss watching your every move.
But, it's not all fun & games, coffee breaks and chats on the phone. It's work. It can be hard work, And it can be lonely. Sometimes it can be tough with long hours, and the line between your work and home life can often blur.
The good news is I figured out a bunch of tips to manage the drawbacks and make it work for you (101 of them!)
