I started working at home back in the ’80’s when it wasn’t so cool or even a trend.
As the time progress and working at home become more and more the “norm”. Big business started to incorporate this options to their employees. It was cost effective, more productivity, and flexible. It was a total win-win for both the businesses and the employees.
The idea was sold with the concept of “work at home”, work in your pajamas, telecommute, save time and money, work from anywhere, be your own boss!
However, it’s not all that flexible, easy and you really shouldn’t work in your pajamas. As the virtual world keeps involving and you have more and more virtual conferences, webinars, meetings and so on.
We the virtual employee or freelance individuals have established a more professional look. Not only does it give us more credibility, but it does set us apart from the typical workforce. We have incorporated a look, “The Causal Business Friday Look” as our regular look.
Why? You may ask……Simple, practical, professional, productive, credible, stylish, and above all the beginning of the minimalist trend.
If you are in the new workforce and have the power to work at home. Follow these simple rules.
- No Pajamas
- Eat healthy
- Daily Grooming
- Dedicated Work Space
- Take Time Off
Remember, all work and no play can hurt your morale and make you depress and stressful.
