how do you find a reputable job to work from home? most of the ones i have responded to were all scams wanting you to send them money for information.

Such great tips Savvy. Letting your friends know what your work hours are is key - they think they can call all day long because there isn't a boss looking over your shoulder. Setting the boundaries early makes a world of difference!

This is good advice that I wish I could follow. I usually don't get dressed in the mornings, and I work WAY too often from the couch even though I have a dedicated office (and perhaps unfortunately, a couch in the office). I think I might take the organization tip (#2) as a way to procrastinate, though. And oh, look, I'm posting on Sugar instead of doing the work I should be right now. Oops.

I work from home and while I have been able to set boundaries, I was still longing for some human interaction so I got a job at the mall on the weekends!

When I worked from home setting boundaries was the hardest part! And just like you said, I did personal stuff during the day and got stuck working in the evening.

Setting boundaries between work and home life is VERY important! I had a home office for almost 5 years and the line got very blurred, which wasn't healthy for me, my marriage or my job. I have the best of both worlds now. I report to an office but I set my own schedule for the day. And if I need to (bad weather, too sick to come in but not too sick to get stuff done, etc.) I *can* work at home, I just don't make a habit of it!

Thanks. These are good tips. They're also applicable to those who get to telecommute during the week.
