    Hey Leslie,

    I totally agree with all of the points you’ve made above when it comes to the traits you need to work from home. I would also add self-discipline to the list. It goes along with your point about accountability.

    There will be no boss looking over your shoulder to make sure that you hand something in by a certain deadline, so you need to figure out a schedule that works best for you in order to get it all done.

    You have to be disciplined enough to turn off all the external stuff while you’re working, like social media or phone calls. Focus on work when you need to and then, just as important, set your boundaries and make time for family and friends without checking your email. 🙂

    I totally agree with you Alicia. Working at home requires figuring out how to focus and get the work done. It’s harder than some people think, because there are so many things that distract or suck up time. Thank you for posting Alicia!
