Create a happy, relaxing atmosphere at your SO-HO desk

Sometimes SO-HO owners are working from the home kitchen table to tackle the business flow. There is no room for the paperwork, for the tools, and others share this space. You find yourself constantly distracted, tired, confused and drained out. You are running a business, therefore you deserve your own space.

Find a corner of your living room, bedroom or even kitchen, where you can set up a small desk, enough to hold your monitor and keyboard. Use a desk lamp or close to a window where you get plenty of light.

Divide your space with a shoji screen and keep your office separate from traffic or noise as much as possible. If you cannot afford a desk, use two file cabinets (which you will probably need anyway to store paperwork) and create a bench to hold your electronics.

Get the most comfortable chair you can afford, add headsets to use with your phone, keep a neat and organized desk and desktop (as in your computer desktop).

Listen to inspirational music or run a small water fountain as a background noise.

Ask people in your household to respect your business hours and not to disturb you while working. If you have room at your new created space, hang your diploma’s, marketing collateral around so you are enveloped by your great accomplishments and feel empowered to run your business.

It does not have to be an expensive set up to create a happy, relaxing and comfortable atmosphere, to feel inspired and accomplished.

Contribute to your mood and inspiration while running your busy successful business.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!
