Over the last 5 years, I have had the honor and pleasure of working for both the virtual academy world and K¹² Inc. During this time, I have learned a great deal about working from home, and how to maximize my time and energy to give back to the company as best as possible, without working a 20-hour a day schedule. In doing so, I have had many people, friends and family alike, inquire as to “How do you work from home?!?”.
I would like to share, and demystify, some of these myths to bring to light the real picture of working from home. At least, for this lone wolf stationed in Castle Rock, Colorado. It’s not an image of an employee sitting at their computer, in their robe, with a bagel burning the toaster and the printing reeling non-stop, instead, it is an organized collage of projects, work, and interaction. (ok…with a cup of cold coffee on the desk, too).
