Working from home can sound fun or easy. But oftentimes, it isn't! Working from home can be really hard! It's easy to get overwhelmed, distracted, and interrupted, and it can quickly become something you hate if you don't have the tools and mindset to stay organized, focused, and connected.

I'm a self-employed web designer/developer and digital marketer who has worked from home for almost 15 years. I've run my own business from a home office, and I've worked remotely for employers full-time, all within the comfort of my own home. In that time, I've learned a TON of tips and tricks about how to stay organized, maintain a professional image, and still feel like you're still in the loop.
