While being able to stay home is rewarding in its own way, there are some things you can do to optimize your productivity. Here are three helpful work from home tips to help you make the most of each day.

1. Your workspace. Having a dedicated workspace helps you to get in the right frame of mind, and keeps all work-related items in one place. It does not have to be anything fancy. Even a small table and comfortable chair in the corner of the room will do. The key is to have enough room to do what you need to do. Remember, you can always improve it as you go along.

2. Record keeping. When tax time rolls around, you’ll be glad you kept records. Write down every penny that comes in and goes out. List the date and what it was spent on or received for. If you hire an accountant, I can guarantee they will never be upset about you keeping too precise records. QuickBooks is a easy way to keep your business records organized.

3. Family interruptions. This can be difficult if you have family at home throughout the day. After all, one of the main reasons people want to work from home is to have more family time. But when your family wants some of your time, it’s tricky to focus on your work. Gently remind them that if they want you to stay at home, then work has to get done. The best way to minimize these interruptions is by setting firm rules about what is, and isn’t, allowed.

Use these work from home tips to get more out of each day. The more productive you are while working, the more free time (and more money) you will have to do the things you truly enjoy.
