4. If getting after-hours business calls or work day personal calls is a problem, it helps to have a separate business phone line, or at least an answering machine or voice mail, to take incoming calls. This also gives your business a more professional appearance to clients than if you and your family make and receive calls from same phone line.
5. If at all possible, try to separate your ďhome officeĒ from rest of your home. If you donít have luxury of a separate room, a room partition or screen can be just as helpful. This also serves as a visual cue to family that youíre working and shouldnít be bothered.
6. Dress and act professionally while working. Some people find it helpful to dress in casual business attire during their working hours. This reinforces that just because youíre working from home doesnít make you any less of a professional. Answer phone with your name, or business name, and keep your children off phone during business hours. Also, spend money investing in tools you need to do your job right. A cell phone, fax machine or even a budget computer can help turn your home office into a true workspace.
If you follow all of these tips and stick with them, chances are youíll find a routine that not only makes you feel productive and active in your business, but also projects message that you mean business Ė literally!

example, I have my own personal method of placing Google Adsense on my pages. If you visit any of my sites, you could probably figure out easily what placement method is, itís not that hard, kudos to you if you figure it out. However, if someone asked me about Google Adsense placement, Iíd send them to this page: https://www.google.com/support/adsense/bin/answer.py?answer=17954&ctx=en:search&query=placement&topic=0&type=f I donít like to tell anyone my methods because I donít want my competitors to know and information tends to be digitally raped at this place called internet.
Just use your head before you lend knowledge to others. If there is a certain way you do business that is out of norm, something that is tailored to your business, or something you had to figure out a solution to on your own, itís probably best you donít go around making posts about it on internet.
With saying that, I feel so much better now. This probably saved someone from getting a spanking.
