Top 10 tips for homeworking

Here are our top ten tips for homeworking connection:

  1. Aim to get into a routine. Although work from home jobs usually allow you to work entirely flexible hours, you'll often get more done and get it done in a more structured manner if you stick to a daily routine.
  2. Plan your workload once a day. Sketching out rough timetables each morning will help you to work through your tasks and ensures that you don't forget any of them.
  3. If you're freelance, don't lose sight of the fact that you are self employed. This is your company, not your clients, and you should aim to provide only high quality goods or services.
  4. If you don't have much experience, be prepared for a relatively low wage. employers know that home workers are often willing to accept this in exchange for being able to work from the comfort of their own homes.
  5. Don't make the mistake of believing that you can juggle a full time work from home job with full time childcare - both require too much attention.
  6. Focus on customer / client service - word of mouth is often the best form of advertising.
  7. Dedicate an area in your home to business - this will help increase productivity by minimising distractions, and also help you to draw boundaries between your personal and working lives.
  8. If you're finding it hard to focus, take a break - that's the beauty of flexible hours!
  9. Keep a log of your work. This will help you to identify where time is being wasted.
  10. Remember to keep track of your earnings and expenses.
