  2. 2. 1. Start your day right! Have breakfast. Then get dressed put on clothing other than pajamas.2. Establish a routine with regular hours. Include time out for lunch and a break.3. Create boundaries and close the door. Keep distractions to a minimum. Make sure to let others know that you are working. Your space should be relatively free from distractions such as family, pets, home telephone, TV, even an attractive view if you are new to telecommuting. www.aim-strategies.com AIM Top 10- Virtual Work-At-Home Tips.

  3. 3. 4. Stay organized. Keep your work area clean.5. Have a reliable phone system and conferencing tools. Phone conversations, conference calls, and voice mails are 3 critical tools in your ‘work from home’ toolbox. These tools allow you to inject tone into your communications, something that email and IM lack.6. Set aside a dedicated work space with the equipment you need. A computer, telephone, printer and fax are a ‘given’. BUT, you will also need paper, pens, and ink cartridges (you’ll be surprised how quickly these need to be replaced, even in today’s ‘paperless’ environment. www.aim-strategies.comAIM Top 10- Virtual Work-At-Home Tips.
