5 Reasons Why Having a Home Office Space is Essential to your Business


Time to get your own home office space - Whether you run a blogging business or any other online business working from home, one of the things you might want to think about is where you actually do your business from, at home… do you run your business from the comfort of your bed? Do you run your business from the living room? Sat in a coffee shop maybe… stop! How about getting your own home office space?

My short story…

For the past 2 years I’ve been running my entire online business ventures from a laptop and from every other place in the house, which can be a real motivation killer and organization can also prove to be challenging.  Some days I found it extremely hard to concentrate on anything, especially with other members of my household running riot around me, as well as having so many other distractions.

I have a desktop computer setup in the corner of the living room but even then getting anywhere near it proved to be frustrating at times…

It was time to take action…

So this is what I did… One morning (yesterday morning), I made the decision to empty the contents of one of our spare bedroom completely, and created my own home office space, woo hoo… and boy I wish I’d done it sooner.

Having the space where I could finally put my full concentration into running my businesses is just what the doctor ordered. It now means that I can do 5 things better…

Home Office Space

Motivate myself better…

Before having my own home office space, there were days that I actually didn’t look forward to getting up and taking my laptop down to the coffee shop to write my next blog post, or get any other work done for that matter. Having my own office meant that I could motivate myself better and actually look forward to working from home…

Organise my time better…

Working in different places also meant that organising my time to get things done was a real challenge, having my own office space now means that I can be better organised and get more done.

I’ve just invested in a white marker board which will make the task of organising myself on a daily basis an even more pleasurable one.

Focus more on the tasks at hand…

With my own office space, I can now focus all my efforts and energies into building and running my online businesses with no distractions, bliss.

Arrange my office furniture the way I want…

I don’t get much say in what the rest of the house looks like, but my office space is mine… So I now look forward to investing in some new office furniture and supplies,

Manage real working hours…

When I take a short break or a lunch break, it means I can now leave the office and venture off into the kitchen to make lunch or even venture down to the coffee shop for a latte. No more eating breakfast in bed whilst reading my emails, or chowing down on croissants and drinking mochas sat in a coffee shop whilst writing my latest post, or even taking the laptop to bed of an evening… the work stays in the office and doesn’t venture out of the office.

Are you tired of draping your work all over the house and halfway across the state line and back? Is there a room in your home that you can convert into your own home office space, if so what are you waiting for? Do it.
