Building a Home Office

As I prepare for my move to Mississippi to join my husband at our next duty station, I sought and have now obtained the opportunity to stay on with my firm and will be working remotely from home in Mississippi.  I am a business consultant in telecommunications and the nature of my business will make it relatively easy for me to make a transition to Mississippi and continue to perform the duties of my work.  I am eager to make this transition and will be making preparations for this change over the next few months.  Although I will maintain employment with my firm in one form or another, I will need to set up a home office and manage my consulting practice out of that office the same way that I have done out of our headquarters for the past five years.  Except now, I will be conducting my own branch of our offices and will need to govern the business of my office with same professionalism that I would apply if I were in business for myself.  

As I make this transition, I will discuss my experiences with setting up a remote home office.  I will discuss the resources I use and the process of establishing a functional home office environment.

In the meantime, you can find additional information about setting up a home office from these links:
