How to make working from home comfortable and even fun
Working from home can be one of the best things you’ve ever done.
Or it can turn into a nightmare.
It all depends on who you take advice from – bloggers who have theories about working remotely, or somebody who actually works from their home office every single day. And has done that for several years.
You need practical advice that works in real life – not theories.
So this blog was set up to share whatever advice I can give, crush any stupid myths, and discuss everything from the technical aspect of working from home to your mental health.
