Every year about this time in the home office, I open Quicken and do some simple calculations regarding my home-based business’s performance for the previous year.

In more than 20 years of writing about and speaking to home-based business owners and other entrepreneurs, I’ve discussed the concept of “learning to hit the curveballs.” Business and client service aren’t always “straight down the middle” fastballs served up for us to crack out of the park. Sometimes, they’re ...

In my home-based business, I don’t make resolutions. That doesn’t mean I don’t try to shake things up, start the year fresh and improve my batting average.

Last year, millions of humans – including those who work from a home office as teleworkers or home-based business owners – made resolutions. I – for one – don’t remember what I resolved to do. Write more? Make more? Dress more respectably in my office than torn shorts and a ...

Oh, the power of a power strip. Traveling in Asheville, N.C., recently, we booked a room at the Downtown Inn. Though not a restaurant, it nonetheless was the quintessential “clean and well-lighted place” that Earnest Hemingway wrote of. But for this home office worker prone to breaking out the Chromebook ...

It’s no secret that I’m an unrepentant, time-shifting home officer. My schedule may take me way past midnight, either on my desktop or on a Chromebook (like right now, working in bed with my Acer on lap 12:45am). Or I may rise at 4am to crank out some words or ...

The modern home office has much in common with the modern home. Both have kitchens, bedrooms, and occasionally yelling kids, intrusive cats or barking dogs. And both have a need for good phone systems. Yet finding that system can be a challenge. I say “systems” because the old Bell System ...

This past week, I spent two days away from the South Florida home office acting like some nomadic road warrior in and around New York City. Client meetings were bookended by airports, plane rides, flight delays – and a smattering of inspirational downtime. In times past, this could have been ...

In this image, I’m wading through all the technology I took on a Home Office Highway road trip a few years ago.

Every new year, we all set out to make resolutions: lose weight, save money, stopped being shocked when the Chicago Cubs don’t win the World Series. Business, like our personal lives, can also benefit from a resolution… or, in this case, five. As 2014 kicks off (and we are all ...
