The ups and downs of working from a home studio.

Working from home has become the norm for many, offering flexibility and comfort. However, staying on task can be challenging without the right strategies. When I first started this business I was working full time at a dental office.  I was not set up for  major production.  What I know now is to start by establishing a dedicated workspace to separate work from home life. This not only helps in maintaining focus but also signals to others that you’re in work mode. Stick to a routine—begin your day at the same time, take regular breaks, and set clear boundaries to avoid burnout.  This is the part I have the most trouble with.  My work days are never the same and I get  side-tracked a lot.

As your business grows, it's essential to adapt your space to your expanding needs. Every January I look at the space I am working in and plan to make it better for me. I am determined to work from home as long as humanly possible.  I did invest in off-site storage unit this year and that has helped immensely.  I utilize vertical space for storage and keep my area organized  as possible to reduce distractions. If space allows, dedicate different areas for various tasks, such as a separate spot for meetings or creative work. I have a few designated for the computer, one for odd crafty bits, one for storage of by booth stuff and one bigger area for the production itself. By thoughtfully designing your home office, you can maintain a professional environment that supports your business growth.  It is an ever evolving beast ...some days I wish I had a huge dedicated warehouse… then I remember how lucky I am to work in my PJ’s in my home sanctuary.
