4-telecommuting-mistakes

At first glance, telecommuting looks like the best thing ever. You don’t have to wake up as early, can dress in comfy clothes, and your commute is only as long as it takes to get to your home office.  That’s all well and good, but telecommuting isn’t a job, it’s an aspect of a job. It could be a big mistake to focus more on the “telecommuting” part than the actual “job” part.

Telecommuting can be a big adjustment for people who never worked from home before. That isn’t to say anyone should expect a negative situation when they make the move to work from home, only that it requires balance, dedication, and focus.

holiday-gift-ideas-for-telecommuters

Over the years I’ve seen many suggestions for holiday gift ideas for telecommuters. There are very few items on many of these lists that I’d add to my own wish list. Either they’re way over the top expensive, impractical, or just plain boring.

Just because I work from home, doesn’t mean I’m without a life or that I don’t want cool things for my home office.

I decided to put together my own list of holiday gift ideas, sharing both the practical and frivolous. Every gift suggestion here is either something I want or something I have and love. Also, I tried to find affordable suggestions. For example, you won’t find the expensive massage chair with all the bells and whistles on this list.
