We have all seen the advertisements on the Internet about working in your pajamas, setting your own hours, and other things that entice us to want to work from home. But even though you aren’t going anywhere, you should still remember that you are a business person.
The first thing that you should keep in mind is that you should stay away from working in your pajamas. If you are in your pajamas, what are you thinking about? You are thinking about sleeping and that does not motivate you. It makes you want to crawl back into bed and not get anything done.
Instead of wearing your pajamas, wear something that would be considered business casual. Even if you are the only one that sees you dressed that way, it will make you feel like you are working instead of just doing something from home.
Something that those who work from home run into is that their friends and family don’t think that they have a real job because they are sitting home in their pajamas and slippers, while the rest of the work force goes to work in suits and skirts.
If you dress in business casual and someone does stop by, it will show that you are serious about your job, and that you have a -real- job. It will make you feel better and it will make them feel better as well. When you look like a professional, you will feel like a professional as well.
