Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
If you think everybody who works from home wears PJ’s and sneaks in housework, Jeff Korona and Cynthia Kidder are here to prove you wrong. These home-based workers make it a point to look and act professional — even though there’s no one around to judge.
It takes some discipline, but Korona and Kidder say it’s doable if you follow a few rules:
- Dress for work. There’s no time to be a slob. Take a shower and look like you’re going somewhere.
- Set a routine and stick to it. Just like in the office, there should be a certain time of day when things get done.
- Keep work and fun on separate computers. Don’t allow family on the work computer.
- Interact with other professionals. It’s hard to be motivated when you don’t have co-workers nearby. You have to make it a point to stay in the loop.
