More people than ever are starting businesses out of their house. Whether you’ve turned your blog into a business and you are making money from advertising and affiliate marketing, you’ve launched a catering business, you are working as a tutor, or you are working as a freelancer, there are many ways to make money from home. It can be the ideal solution for working parents, and people that love nothing more than working in their sweats with the TV on in the background. But, whatever you are doing to earn your money, there are some things that no self-respecting home business can do without. Let’s take a look at some of them.

When you work as an employee, you get coffee breaks. You work set hours, and everything works to a schedule. When you work from home, you are always at work. You work all of the time. You need more than coffee breaks. You need a constant supply. Short of administering a drip to get the coffee into your body without having to take a break to boil the kettle or set the machine, you might want to start looking for wholesale coffee suppliers to get you through your days. This becomes even truer if you are trying to work with young kids at home.
There’s no Netflix and chill for home workers. But, there is Netflix and work a little more slowly than you should be. Working from home can be a lonely thing. You might find yourself feeling isolated, and the silence can drive you mad. You might have been told that you’ll focus better in silence, but this isn’t true if it is making you unhappy.
You might not want to watch a new film or a documentary that needs plenty of your focus. But, your favourite old TV shows that you’ve binged on many times before can be the ideal background noise, and company, on a long day working at home on your own.
Some home workers like to get dressed, and even dress for the office. It helps them to focus and get in the mood for work. Others prefer casual jeans and a hoodie type dress. And some enjoy nothing more than working in their PJ’s.
Frankly, even if you fall into that first grouping, there’ll be times late at night or early in the morning when you’re not really working, just checking up on emails, when you’ll be a little more casual. If you do like to work in your PJ’s or comfy clothes, make sure that you are happy opening the door to the postman in them.

You might do most of your work on a computer. But, even so, home workers, especially those with families, need a little extra help organising everything. You’ll make notes and lists all of the time, and there will absolutely never be a pen around when you really need one. Make sure there are pens at your desk, and everywhere you work. Carry one in your bag. You can never have enough pens.
