A must read for anyone planning to telecommute.
C. Holt
There were so many great points. . . like the part where the author realizes that when working from home you may have to "toot your own horn."

I am giving this book to all telecommuters or work from home staff.

This book was like a small pamphlet of badly-written common sense about working from home. A 2-minute Google search would get you better advice. I wish I hadn't spent my money on it.

I got this as a gift for someone who was having some issues getting into a working routine in a home office. The material is good... but I missed the fact that this is only fifty pages long, and so the information and advice included is necessarily very brief. Three stars in that it was helpful in reinforcing advice from other places, but buyer beware that this probably isn't the standalone book you need to get your head around a work from home job situation.

This is a great little book and easy read!

I bought this book because I found that a few of my employees worked successfully from home and a others were unsuccessful. I see why: Cecelia has great habits and doesn't stray away from that, she has a process and daily agenda and sticks to it. I found in my experience that higher & middle level management are able to telecommute from home or work from home successfully because they have good habits. Lower level staff members who do not have a dedicated quiet room to work from are unsuccessful to produce good work from home and I found out that they are working from their bedrooms or kitchen table. Also, they do not have good work habits like the middle and upper management do.

I love her process of:
1. Adhere to a routine
2. Manage your time & be consistent with your routine
3. Setting realistic goals
4. How to motivate yourself
5. Networking advice, an important thing as it can be lonely
6. Daily clean-ups

I would disagree with the reader that made a comment that "displeasure with her advice is that her sample daily schedule starts the day at 5:00 AM". I found that successful staff members do start work earlier and achieve all their goals well from this habit of starting their day early.

I am giving this book to all telecommuters or work from home staff.

I read this fabulous book! There were so many great points. . . like the part where the author realizes that when working from home you may have to "toot your own horn." That is so true. I remember those days. I sure wish I would have had this book and all of its wisdom during my home office days! I may have enjoyed the experience a little better. Thanks for putting together this little treasure!
