Home office tips and tools to make working at home easier.

Taking Work With Me In A Flash

I work at home on a desktop computer. I’m no corporate jet-setter. I have kids in elementary school, a myriad of pets, and a husband who travels for a living, so I don’t get out much. But these days, every now and then, I’m out and about or on a mini-vacation and I actually take some work with me (safely and quickly)!

Finding Wi-Fi HotSpots

I finally made the plunge about a month ago and purchased a notebook computer. It comes in handier than I’d have ever imagined since we have satellite connection (the only thing near broadband when you live out in the boonies) and a wireless router for getting online. That means that I can take my laptop anywhere in the house or in the yard and productively work online. It helps that… >>Continue reading Finding Wi-Fi HotSpots
