Which is best, Home Office or Office Office?
Do you work from home or do you have a dedicated office? Maybe you have tried both, like me, and know which you prefer?

This article [link below] highlights the many obvious distractions that can make working from your humble abode a happy affair, but a much less productive one.

I've used my bedroom desk, the spare room and a decked out shed. None compare to a real office. How about you?

Personally it has to be an Office Office! I've tried the 'Home Office' and it just doesn't work for me, from the cat needing some loving to a well meaning friend popping in for a coffee.

Given that I'm just getting back into work after being a stay at home mum for 2 years, I need the discipline of leaving the house and going to the office and hopefully being much more productive!

Office office definitely for me. I work more efficiently and I relax more efficiently when I get home. I find that routine doesn't change enough at weekends and on holidays when I work from home.

I think I'd like a proper office again but doubt that will be an option. Before moving this year I had my own room at home for my office, which did help keep things separate, but now, having to work from the sofa, I'm in the living room. That's not a bad as I thought it would be; I'm pretty good at switching off any desire to do housewifely things and not turning on the TV (except for Wimbledon).
But I'm not good at then turning off the work/business - I must work on that...

I also work from home and at times it's great - freedom. However at times I feel isolated and go slightly mad couped up in the house all day.

I try to overcome this by attending networking meetings. Much like Babs I'd love to have a separate office but the costs are too high.

I run my business from a High Street office in the Georgian seaside market town of Lymington on the edge of the New Forest. I've lived there since the age of 11 apart from a 6-year spell in Walton on Thames, Surrey.. I love music, food, boats and sport [see interests below for specifics] Since the age of 18 I have worked exclusively on my own businesses; from plans to launch an 80-van mobile car valeting franchise, that were scuppered last minute due to a 3 month emergency hospital visit, to importing Nissan vans from Dublin, my career has been a lot of fun. I have started businesses in transport, music, automotive, sales, franchising, catering, development land, conveyancing, tax and of course…unavoidably and unsurprising to me I have ended up where I knew I would one day... marketing. I know James Coakes [at a distance] and have eaten a sandwich in his office located a sausage roll throws away from my own HQ.
BUILD UNQUESTIONABLE CLIENT LOYALTY FOR YOUR B2B SERVICE BUSINESS AT THE UK’S ONLY REGULAR MARKETING BASED WORKSHOP Business is about standing out & not blending in Implanting your company’s offer into the minds of your intended buyers should be your no.1 priority. Encouraging people to talk about your business in the way you want them to isn’t easy, but it’s vital. It is possible though. All you need to do is decide what do you want to be known for & how do you want others to describe you. Next, create your USP [your Utterly Seductive Proposal] and forcefully rubber-stamp it across the entirety of all your marketing. Your Utterly Seductive Proposal is the all-conquering headline by which you wish to be known by. It powerfully and succinctly conveys why your ideal target client should do business with YOU over any of your competitors. I run events in the south of England where the entire focus is on creating your USP.
There are no companies to show.
