an office at home

If today’s business climate has forced you to re-think your career choice, is creating your dream job an option? What about returning to school to either finish or further your education? There are more and more stories of entrepreneurs who’ve turned a hobby into a small business—so why not start-up at home?

First you’ll need your million dollar idea and lots of motivation, then you can get to work setting-up shop. Next, space. Carving out a room is ideal but a nook will do.

1. a desk. Graph incorporates drawers to keep files easily accessible and, depending on how paperless you operate, could elminate a file cabinet.

2. a versatile desk chair. Studio’s bungee cord “upholstery” means its comfortable for most and it pretty much goes anywhere. Just like the executives’, it pivots and lifts for the best ergonomic fit.

3. lighting. The first thing that comes to mind is a task lamp, but why not work with your existing decor and use a floor lamp or the turner sconce? Your office will will be more integrated and you’ll free-up valuable real estate on your desktop.

4. time management. Go bold with an oversized clock like metropolis—the perfect compliment to all of the above.

5. include the fun factor! It’s not optional, it’s mandatory. What are the little things in life that make you smile and give you energy? Fu dog bookends or an orange swingline stapler?

So many questions, so many untapped opportunities to be your own boss! Already on this trend? What are your best practices? How about sharing a room like this couple did with back to back desks?

Yo Fu Dogs, I'm really happy for you, I'mma let you finish, but, the Zuny Happy Hippo is one of the best desk accessories of all time.
