Description

More than 60,000,000 people work at home at least some of the time--and many more are considering it. Now in paperback format, The 60-Second Commuteis the start-to-finish sourcebook for overcoming every challenge associated with working at home--from choosing the right technology to balancing work with personal life. Erica Orloff and Dr. Kathy Levinson start by assessing the pluses and minuses of working at home, and helping readers realistically evaluate whether they're cut out to do so. The authors systematically review meat-and-potatoes issues like insurance and taxation, deciding whether to incorporate, and setting up a comfortable and productive home office. Equally important, they offer extensive practical advice on the personal side of working at home--from time management to "mental health days," avoiding isolation to setting house "rules" that help work-at-home professionals get the job done without disregarding family, friends and neighbors
