Editorial Reviews


There is not a doubt in my mind that even the most successful entrepreneurs out there struggle with the temptation to allow unorganized clutter to amass in their personal work spaces. A huge fan of doing everything I can to make systems generally more efficient, I could not help but naturally think about just how much more efficient I (or you) would be had you applied some of Lisa s tip to your own life and home office. Whether it saves you from stumbling unnecessarily, or scouring for hours trying to find a document (time that could be better spent actually working on your business), this book is jam-packed with tips that are a pure goldmine. On top of her book, check out her website workingnaked.com: her bare essential recommendations are great, and one portion of her website even allows you to submit a photo of your home office in order to receive a gentle critique, complete with tips to improve it. --Tactical Cash Flow

Things like clothes and commutes seem so excessive in the modern day workplace. Working Naked is a guide to working from home.

From saving space, to using efficient home office equipment, dealing with massive paper work and more, Working Naked is a guide for those who only want the bare essentials of work. --Midwest Book Review

My home office has been a mess for a long time. My husband bought me this book because he was tired of walking by my disorganized office. I picked out a few tips that made sense. My office isn't perfect and I still have some work to do, but the piles are gone and I've changed my office arrangement. I also moved out old furniture and donated some other things. He highlighted the part about home and life balance so I guess I need to work on that too.

While you may never actually "Work Naked" in your house, (Leather gets real cold this time of year) Lisa's book is a must read for anyone who is serious about working from home. She takes all the guess work out of how to set up your home office for optimum success. Having worked from home myself for the last 20 years, I know that without a room or an area that you can call "your own", your chances of spending quality time - without being constantly distracted - are limited at best.

In Working Naked - Lisa lays it all out. She has great ideas, money saving and time saving tips. She covers the potential problems of how the kids and your pets can get you off your game. And if you only read chapter 17 - "Control Clutter" you'll be way ahead of the game as far as I'm concerned. Even if you're an old pro at home office-ing (is that a word?), you'll still get lots of great ideas from this book. If you're just starting out on creating your home office - put reading "Working Naked" at the top of your to-do list!

I've worked naked for the past few years (i.e. worked from home), and I wish I would have had this book before I started. Lisa presents a ton of fantastic tips in a well-organized, easy-to-read format. She covers everything from setting up your home office to staying organized to actually getting down to working and being productive. I now work naked in public - I am a freelancer working from a coworking space - and most of Lisa's great tips are still relevant to me.

If you are considering or are already working from home, Lisa Kanarek's "Working Naked" is a great how-to guide for setting yourself set up and getting "undressed" for success.
