Work from home- setting up a home office

All of us dream about work from home – but not many arrange working space for productive work.

Even though being a freelancer essentially just means that you are self-employed, the advent of the internet has made freelancing more synonymous with ‘working from a home office‘ than ever.

Find the best location for your productive work – try to work in a separate room from the rest of the house. is an efficient strategy to boost your productivity- separate room – will help you to focus on your professional tasks.

Might happen that you live in a studio or one-bedroom apartment, with a small living room, which makes it impossible to dedicate an entire room in the house to work. even if so- try to find a cozy corner at home with enough lighting and a cozy comfortable chair, as your back will send you “greetings” with a time, if you will work in an uncomfortable way.

Desk – choose the right one for you.

When buying one, make sure you pay attention to the desk measurements to ensure it fits the space you’ve got available at home.

Computer or Laptop

Choose the one you need, or chose by available space – Computers obviously takes me space, but good quality Laptop – may help you even to hide it, if you have small kids at home.

Printer- scanner

at the fight sign- you may not need it at the very start, but with time, better to buy one, specially if you are a freelance translator.

As a freelancer working from home, your working space is where you spend most of your time.
