Working from home has its pros and cons. I love the fact that I am able to stay at
Home with Nila and also earn a living . The downside is not knowing when to ‘switch off’, but it works for me and my family :)

I get asked a lot about being self employed and working from home and what my must haves are . A lot of people assume that they would all be physical things like books and notepads and endless amounts of stationary.

Although they are the kind of stuff I have laying around my desk , they are not my essentials , and to be honest I could probably do without .

The most important thing for me working from home is broadband. I am a blogger and a freelance writer , it is essential for me to have the internet and also to have a good provider so looking around for different internet options for my address to find the best one available at the best possible price is essential .

Have you ever been in that position where your broadband just doesn’t want to work? To slow , wont connect ? Or your paying a ridiculous price and can hardly use it?

We had such a nightmare with our broadband last year and working from home was impossible. I searched for the latest broadband deals and came across a comparison  site.

Comparison sites actually cover a wide spectrum of offer deals , so whether  it’s tv, broadband , home phone or mobile - and the service is completely free!. So the listings you see all include the charges and line rental so you pay the price you see :)

Second is definitely a schedule . I must admit I do sometimes have to work early hours but this could be down to the baby being awake teething or I’ve had a day off so I have to make up for it , but mostly I stick to a schedule as much as I can so I am not over working myself and things can run smoothly .

Lastly is my iPhone . The only physical thing . A lot of people would say my laptop, but I work from my phone 85% of the time . The iPhones are great for blogging apps and editing photos for articles . I really would be lost without my iPhone.

Let me know about your essentials if you work from home , I’d love to hear them
