February 1, 2011 (PowerHomeBiz.net) – In celebration of the more than 32 million home office professionals who are “working naked,” today marks the second annual Working Naked Day. Home Office Expert, founder of Working Naked Day and WorkingNaked.com, Lisa Kanarek, offers tips for home office professionals to help them strip away their anxieties and improve the way they work from home.
Expose yourself to new technology.
In addition to storing data on your computer or an external hard drive, use an online data storage option such as Dropbox and start implementing planning software, like Evernote, into your everyday tasks.
Strip your home office down to the basics.
Instead of using separate machines for faxing, printing, scanning and copying, use an all-in- one machine to save space. The Brother MFC-J615W is a compact, wireless, color inkjet AiO that is ideal for any home office.
Don’t be modest. Share your accomplishments by hanging diplomas or business awards on your wall. Let your home office reflect your personality, style and your successes.
Dress up your office.
Your home office doesn?t have to have a boring, corporate look. Install draperies with interesting patterns and designs, paint your walls any color other than white, and hang colorful artwork to create an environment that inspires productivity.
Cover up your floor (or at least part of it) to absorb sound. By adding an area rug or wall-to-wall carpeting to your home office, you won?t sound as if you?re in a cave if you are on a phone or videoconference call.
“I started WorkingNaked.com to help guide and connect with home office professionals, like me, who work from home without the support of the corporate workplace,” says Kanarek. “We’re taking care of everything ourselves?we?re ?working naked.? I created Working Naked Day to celebrate the freedom we have as home office professionals, to work on our own terms and follow our own rules.”
