Telecommuting - Remote Working - Tools for Working from Home - Better Organization for Work Live Balance & Productivity

Telecommuting and remote working from home can be a great way to live a professional life, if you plan accordingly and learn this new way of doing business.

The recent public health crisis has forced millions of executives around the globe out of their offices. Now, working from home, telecommuting, is the new norm. Unfortunately, it’s also normal to feel frustrated and inefficient working from home.

Personal development expert TJ Walker has been working from home and telecommuting off and on since the 1980s. He shares beginner, intermediate, and expert tips on how to thrive in this home working environment.

In this course you’ll learn everything from how to look your best in a Zoom meeting to how to deal with noisy kids and neighbors, to how to establish firm start times and quit times to make your day more efficient, and to keep you from going crazy.

If you are new to the telecommuting and remote working game, this course is for you. And if you’ve been telecommuting for years and still don’t feel like you have the right rhythm down, this course is also for you.

Working from home is no longer an occasional evening or weekend activity. Telecommuting is the new normal. Yes, they are huge advantages in not having to commute or spend time on trains and in traffic. But they are even greater distractions and temptations coming to you from your family, your refrigerator, and your cell phone.

If you are ready to jump start your telecommuting efficiency, then sign up for this course today.
