From PJ’s to Pumps – What to Wear When Working From Home?

 From PJ’s to Pumps – What to Wear?? By Cathi Nelson

If you are a work from home women like me, it is likely you spend a good part of your day in yoga pants, sneakers, and a comfy sweatshirt. In fact, my partner and I work remotely and many days we laugh that it is four o’clock and we are still in our pajamas, working away on our computers. We both dread when clients ask us if we want to Skype because that requires lipstick, makeup, and styled hair.

As much as I love working from home, I have found that when it is time for me to attend a conference, networking meeting, or business event I suddenly feel insecure about “what am I going to wear”.  Gone are the days when I had to choose an outfit each day, now it more like once a month so I am essentially out of practice. In addition, I don’t have the time or desire to study the latest fashions trends. I want to focus my time and energy on growing my business, not worry about what to wear.

When I was preparing for our 4th annual conference this spring I found myself facing the same dilemma. Our conference was in Orlando, Florida and I had been living in warm fleece throughout our cold New England winter. I asked Jane Pollak, a business coach I admire who helped her with her outfits and she told me about Scarlett De Bease, a professional Image and Style Coach who specializes in working with women over 40 who are tired of stressing about dressing. I called that day and hired her for a half-day styling session. It was the best investment. (more…)

5 Zenful Tips For Working From Home

5 Zenful Tips For Working From HomeBy Emily Belcher

While most people have far more positive’s than negative’s when comparing their work at home life versus their previous traditional jobs, there are still those moments when life seemed so much easier on the outside. Many people face new obstacles that they are challenged with that could be helped with creating a more “zenful” work at home atmosphere.

Working at home can create a lot of pressure or the feeling of having a lot on your shoulders. Although there is no supervisor breathing down your neck, you still feel a level of pressure from an inner voice saying that you need to prove that you don’t need to be supervised constantly.

Loneliness is another common complaint from many people who have decided to work from home. A good majority of people work while they are home alone. While you may think that would be the ideal setting (because honestly, it can be almost impossible to get anything done with distractions from other people), it can make you feel very isolated and depressed.

There are a few quotes floating around on the internet about the dangers of being left alone with your thoughts. Working from home can give you the luxury of freedom, yet the consequence of a roaming, unsupervised mind can be overwhelming. Keeping your focus can be tricky, especially when there are distractions (and trust me, there will always be distractions to encounter). (more…)
