Designing a workable office at home can be very exciting and fun. Let’s face it, working from home it what most of us desire. What a luxury it would be, not having to travel back and forth to work using expensive gas.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. There are certain things to cover, before we jump into any room and start working. We must think about designing and planning what we need in our home office. This first step can determine if we fail or succeed in our home based business.

So why is so important to have a good working office at home? Why can’t I just work anywhere in the house I want to? If you think you can set in front of the T.V. in your favorite chair or couch, with your computer on your lap, then you are heading for disaster. Think about it, have you ever seen a business let its employees do this? NO! I thin you know the reason why not!

I have written this page about a workable home office in a way that you can move from one step to the next. I want to help you build a proper working office the first time without having to search all over the internet for answers. I will provide to you some of my proven ideals to better help you have succeed in your home based business.

LOCATION OF OFFICE: Hopefully you have a spare study or bedroom that is not being used. This would be ideal for you office. If not, then maybe a comfortable garage with air and heat. If none of these are available, you will have to use your bedroom, kitchen or living room. Using any of the last three places is going to be difficult for you. There will lots of distractions around you that you will have to contend with. We just have to do our best in this situation..

ESTABLISH BOUNDARIES: When I say boundaries, I mean keeping anything away from you that will distract from the job at hand. You will need “peace & quite”. I hope your office will be comfortably away from the common noises of the house. Discuss this with the family prior to setting up your workable office. Make rules for the family ahead of time about your needs when you are working. They must respect and follow these rules.

WORK SCHEDULE: I can not stress this section strong enough! Remember you do not have a “Boss” at home watching over everything you do. Therefore you must be “Self-Motivated” and have “Self Discipline” to survive in a home based business. You cannot get up at 10 AM, drink some coffee and read the news paper. Set your work habits in the beginning and do not waver. If you do not treat your business as a real job, you will fail.

SUPPORT AT HOME: As you read this paragraph, you will probably think I’m just putting in filler to maker a longer article. Trust me, I’m not. The lack of family support has been the biggest problem for me since working from my home office. This may sound terrible to you, but that’s the way it was for me. Lots of spouses and family members consider what you are doing in your office not a real job. A spouse may think just because you are home all day, you should spend the time with him/her. This will probably not change until the money starts coming in. Meanwhile just prepare yourself mentally and stay strong in your convictions.
