- Separate your workspace at home from the rest of your house. Ideally, a designated home office would be best; if not plausible, at least have a desk.
- Have a separate telephone line for work to keep you focused and eliminate personal distractions. This is also required to deduct expenses.
- Invest in a filing cabinet. It is an easy way to keep your papers organized and out of the way of your home life, as well as keep others out.
- Treat your home workspace as if you working in an office: keep away from the television, distractions, & home luxuries to stay focused.
