Streamline your business with a Home Office

Real Estate Agent with No longer in the sales business

Today's connectivity makes working from home convenient and cost-effective.  Basic requirements for today's efficient home office include great lighting; telephone and Internet connections; and space for basic equipment such as telephone and printers, as well as paper files.  Shelves and cabinets organize storage. A bookshelf to the right of the desk, in arm's reach, for reference books and binders saves steps and compresses more work into less time. 

Using wall space for large desk-pad sized monthly calendar pages keeps us on-task and focused; I keep this month as well as the next two months posted.  A tiny spiral notebook beside the computer keyboard holds all those pesky user names and passwords that proliferate as our online time increases.  Elevate your monitor on a wire shelf and you will have less neck strain, as well as being able to keep CD-roms, notepads, and business cards conveniently under the shelf.
