From the Author
My book was written in order to help people who are transitioning from a regular "work office" to working from a home office enviroment. I also conduct webinars for those who need more assistance.
Top Customer Reviews
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.
