Insurance for working from your home office

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else on 22.05.17

Insurance is such an important factor in working from a virtual home office. We have to have insurance for everything from health, cars, home and even working from home. I don’t know about you but I have invested a large portion of my income in software, computers and generally all equipment in my virtual home office.

Mention your working environment to your insurance agent to verify you are fully covered in the event something happens to your home. Prepare for catastrophic events by taking out an added insurance binder to protect your working investment. Always prepare for the unknown.

Have you reviewed your home insurance lately?

Home Office Blues

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else on 09.05.17

My home office makes working accessible, comfortable, and convenient.  I absolutely love this working arrangement.  I have loved this arrangement from day one, but I also know that I was well prepared for my new working environment. 

Others have struggled with their home offices – rather than embracing that virtual working agreement.  If you are subject to the home office blues, it indicates that you have not prepared yourself, your family, and your workplace adequately.    To correct that problem, you may want to review that arrangement and make appropriate changes.  Check out Melissa’s Book- Your Virtual Home Office Can be a Reality! to help formulate your home office plan.

Long hours lately from my home office

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else on 12.10.16

There has been lots of activity from my home office lately, and thus I have been working longer hours.  However, the longer hours are much easier since I can set my schedule to meet my needs and the needs of my family.  For example, this morning I started my day at 4:30 am – simply because it works best for me and my family.

Having a home office allows me to schedule work hours that are more conducive for my family’s needs.

School is back in Session

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Everything Else, Minimizing Distractions on 09.09.15

This blog post was published in 2009.   I thought it was worth sharing and repeating since it highlights the struggles of many during this time of year.   If you are working from a home office with children it certainly creates new challenges: As of last week, my daughter is returning to school and I am excited about the new school year beginning. Over the summer, my 12-year-old daughter was home with me day in and day out. While I was working, she grew restless and we had to find a work/play balance.

Now that she has returned to school, I am looking forward to an increased business drive and sense of motivation. Having youngsters at home, while maintaining a home office is a tough challenge.

Chapter 14 of Melissa’s book contains tips, tactics, and strategies for managing families while working from home. Check it out-Your Virtual Home Office Can Be a Reality!

Work Interruptions

Posted in Establish your virtual home office, Minimizing Distractions on 11.06.15

Working from home brings unique challenges. People tend to believe you are sitting at your computer playing games and tend not to take your work seriously. Family can be the worst when it comes to work boundaries. Set up working guidelines early in your work from home career. Let family know that when you are in your office, you are off limits unless it is an emergency. If you have small children at home, try to set up scheduled activities to keep them occupied while you work. Plan focused work during nap time or time when you know you will have uninterrupted work time.

Don’t answer the phone when personal calls come in. Let your extended family know your working hours and when you typically take a lunch break for those times that just can’t wait until the end of the day.

Prepare yourself for interruption hurdles knowing the work from home journey is well worth it.
