Working from home is a dream for a lot of people.
Like anything else, it’s got upsides and downsides. In this episode of The Anywhereist Podcast, we’ll talk about some of the most compelling reasons to work from home. We’ll also discuss some of the challenges, and things you can do to make the transition easier if you’re going from working in someone else’s office to your own home.
As always, Kitty’s got a tool for you to print out and use to help you be more productive during your work-at-home workday.
