Working from Home Effectively

Work from home while being productive, focused, efficient. Working from home as self-employed, freelance or remote work.

Working From Home is becoming increasingly popular, available and empowering! Imagine if you could work for any company in the world and not just those that are based in your city or country. Or imagine if you had more flexibility to care for your family, renovate your home, or start a business. Working From Home is a commonly misunderstood and understudied skill, but if done right it can truly transform your career and open a lot of new doors. Despite increasingly becoming a part of our everyday lives, amazingly, most people are never taught how to be effective in making your own schedule and workspace. So, in this course, you’ll be walked through step by step on how to simply and effectively manage your time and space at home, regardless of your industry and personality type.

This course covers everything you need to know about running a Home Business, working in Virtual Teams, or even Working Abroad. Essentially any situation where you might need to spend a day at home instead of in an office building, but still be productive, focused, organized and of course happy. We focus on extremely practical actionable changes you can make to ensure Working From Home is just as effective as working in an office… perhaps even more! You’ll learn whether a daily routine is truly essential, tech and tools to make life easier, mastering virtual calls (as a guest or a host) and creating a brilliant office space at home. Say goodbye to feeling low energy, distracted and unmotivated, and instead enjoy the simplicity of building your own schedule. This course covers detailed tips for excellent planning using Gantt Charts and PERT diagrams, managing a team, avoiding overspend, predicting risks and dealing with multiple stakeholders.

After this course, you will feel calm, collected, well prepared and confident that you can work effectively from anywhere. You’ll know how to create your own schedule and find your own motivation and goals. We look at lots of real-life software and set up examples and give you practical tools you can use right away to get better results in your day. Whether you’re a solopreneur with a home business, or part of global virtual teams this course will empower you as someone who is always one step ahead.
