3 Things Telecommuting isn't

I learned a lot about balance and boundaries in 14 years of telecommuting. In fact, if you were to ask me about my most important lesson it’s not about what computer to buy or where to find coffee shops with free Wifi, it’s about setting boundaries, achieving balance and saying “no.” You see, when I first began working from my home, I thought “telecommuting” meant the ability to do it all. For example, I thought it meant I had the whole day ahead of me to not only work but also clean, cook, run errands, handle carpool, and volunteer at school.

Thoughts About Telecommuting

Home Office EssentialsEvery telecommuter has a list of essentials to have in their home office. If you were to ask people who work from home for a list of their home office “must haves,” you’ll find responses vary, though. That’s because we’re all comfortable with different things. So what works best for me, won’t necessarily work for you.

In any event, I’m sharing my list of must haves for anyone who might find it useful. After you’re done reading, share your favorites or tell me how silly you think my choices are. I’m always looking for good suggestions for staying focused, organized, and comfortable during the work day.

new beginnings
Here’s to new beginnings!

What would you sacrifice in order to land a telecommuting job?  This is a question I had to ask myself recently when a major client and I recently parted company.

To tell you the truth, losing this particular client had me a little concerned. In the past year and a half, I lost three major clients. With the exception of a deadbeat client, all contracts ended on good terms because the jobs had run their course. But, still, I’m old school and where I come from it doesn’t look good to job hop so often – even as a freelancer.

Tips for Telecommuters

work from home scams

Scammers, spammers, and other unsavory types  love to prey on people who want to work from home. They’ll try and sell you “secrets,” make you pay beaucoup bucks for “hidden” job leads you can find online for free, and have you do a lot of work for little or no money.
