    Really good advice here. People don’t realize the pitfalls of working from home – they think it’s like heaven. But it’s really easy to lose sight of what you’re doing. Thanks again for this.

    Your podcasts are so helpful. Thank you!

    Working from home can be more challenging than people think. Creating a work schedule is what I need to get better at. Not forgetting to eat is another important point. Sometimes I can be so absorbed in a certain project that I, at mid afternoon or later, realize I haven’t eaten anything since breakfast.

    These are great tips! I have an office in my home and I have a very strict schedule on when I have to be in there working. Of course don’t worry it is not a full day so there is plenty of time for getting out and having fun.

    Nice tips, my problem when working at home is I can’t concentrate when the children start to ask many attention from me, so it’s hard to be focus. I think I need to review my working schedule and try to stick with it.

    I agree that having a work schedule is key to success working from home.
    It forces you to make a time plan or to do list.
    You get more done than if you didn’t do this – therefore becoming more productive :o)

    You forgot one more thing that in my opinion is the most important: EXCERSISE

    I have been self employed working from home 2 years and I REALLY let my body get out of shape. Deciding to get back in shape was by far the most important thing I’ve done.

    My mind is sharper
    I’m able to concentrate
    I sleep better
    Can work harder
    etc
