BMP 003 How To Fail Working From Home
Working from home can be full of challenges and distractions. This week, Brent Richardson and his producer, Jamie Richardson, share lessons they’ve learned through telecommuting. The pair takes a humorous look at how to FAIL when working from home including:
- Where to set up your home office.
- Common conference call mistakes.
- Embracing your inner teenager.
- Becoming a recluse.
- Neglecting physical activity.
- Wasting time.
The two are opposites when it comes to their peak performance hours, what their work day looks like, and how their home office is set up, but they agree on one thing: if you don’t prioritize your schedule, no one else will.
Whether you are looking to transition to working from home full-time, or are simply seizing telecommute opportunities, this episode will help you avoid mistakes Brent and Jamie learned the hard way.
