Although I have an office space, I work from home a lot and I love it. Here are 7 reasons why I love to work from home.
Field Notes is a company that specializes in making small, American-made pocket notebooks. My first impression was that they were too small and not worth my attention. That has changed.
Listening to the right music while working has been a tremendous productivity booster for me over the past few years. I have found myself more focused, energized, and optimistic—which allows me to get more done—and keeps me feeling relaxed and present.
