My Essentials When Working from Home

Posted on January 30, 2018

Back in 2009 when I started Intern Queen it was just me running the company from my studio apartment.I remember I would get up and sit at my coffee table with my computer and work from there (occasionally I would go to my local Coffee Bean and sit there all day too). Anyways, two years ago we moved into our very first Intern Queen office in LA but, still decided to keep working from home two days per week. Although everyone’s home work space is different, there are some common things that assure a good working environment.  A home office, kitchen table or couch can be transformed into a productive work space. These are my essentials when working from home.

My laptop, of course. This is my number one tool that I need when I work from home.

You know I love my coffee. On days where I’m working from home drinking from one of these cute mugs adds a little encouragement, which is always nice.

Cute notebooks to write down important tasks or thoughts that come my way. A notebook and pen should always be within reach.

Organization is key. Having a set of folders prevents having stacks of paper.

Post-its always come to the rescue for memos and to mark a page.

Seeing the entire month helps identify what needs to be done.
