Staying Connected 

Staying connected to your clients, investors or employees can be a little tricky at first when you are running a business from home. However, it’s certainly not impossible. First, you need to be aware of the best apps that you can use that will allow you to keep connected to employees instantly while ensuring that your chats remain private. Whatsapp is a smart option to use here because every message can be encrypted. You might also want to set up a shared platform. This can be ideal if you are sharing content and other information between a larger group of team members. 


Finally, you might need to focus on how to stay productive. That can be quite tricky, particularly when you have multiple people who are desperate for your attention even during work hours. You need to think about setting your schedule the right way and building a productive work environment. There are numerous ways to do this. Our recommendation is that you think about setting up your own little office where you can spend the working day complete with everything you need. Remember, when you work from home, you’ll be your own boss.
