If you don’t already physically work from home, chances are you still do plenty of work at home – most entrepreneurs are simply too busy to squeeze everything into the working day.

But how do you work from home? In an office or specific work space? Or just on the couch, watching television?
If you don’t have a work space at home, you probably aren’t working as efficiently as you could. No doubt you’re being interrupted or distracted frequently and as a result tasks take much longer to execute.
Setting up a workspace could be the answer. Free of distractions, you will get through any work you do have to do at home much quicker and your weekends and evenings will contain more free time to spend with your family.
Your work/life balance will improve and hopefully your workload becomes easier to deal with.
If you simply have to work at home, at least do it efficiently.
