20 Jul Helene’s Tip for Home Office Set-up
(Information below originally appeared in FitSmallBusiness.com)
Keep your office organized.
I’ve been working at home for over 25 years teaching others how to work at home too!
My favorite tip for making it work is to have a defined space with all your business equipment, files, and storage in one place. This allows for maximum efficiency of your time and energy. It keeps you organized and focused on your work. The best desk/workspace is the ability to have everything at your fingertips, so you don’t have to reach across the room or get up and go to the filing cabinet. Have a desk with drawers to keep the supplies and files near you that you use most often.
The key to a successful setup is setting up the system and then maintaining it by putting things back where they belong. I take the time to do this as I go along or at the end of my business day. This prevents me from wasting time the next morning looking for files, supplies, etc. Time management means I can start work faster and bill clients!
