As someone who works from home, it might seem that I can lounge around all day in sweats, pajamas, or some gym-like Lululemon anything. Ha! I wish that was true, and yes I’m sure people do it, but dressing for success is also a mind-set to live by especially when you are your own boss. I’m all for comfort and a relaxed environment, but having a routine will give you a good head start. My guidelines are as follows:
Get Out Of Bed: This might sound obvious, but many people jump into bed with their laptops and live there. Bed crumbs and all!
Change Clothes: I usually have a set uniform that I wear that’s casual, chic & comfortable, so if I have to run out of the house, I only need to switch out 1-2 things. This way I’m always ready when people pop over, and yes, there’s always the delivery guy!
Have Somewhere To Go: Wow this is such a huge one. To get dressed in heels, boots, a jacket to either a lunch, meeting, or even just shopping, will elevate your mind and spirit. You never know who you’ll be sitting/standing next too, and its so important to get out of the house, even if its around the block.
Time To Cut The Cord: There has to be a certain time, where everyday you stop and say that’s it for the day. The best way to succeed yourself, is by taking a break. Rumor has it, there’s a happy hour just down your street…
Get Social: The brilliant saying “Out of sight out of mind” couldn’t be more prevalent than here. It’s so important to network, see friends, have meetings at night – but by keeping your social calendar full and plentiful, you remind people who you exist, and you look smashing doing it!
