Whether you've already got a home office or you're planning to clear out some nook and set one up, here's your guide. Full of common sense, it covers all the issues you'll face, from ergonomics to equipment budgeting, choosing an Internet service provider to managing finances on your computer.
The book's premise is that you can get up and running completely in a weekend. OK, maybe you can't pick out your office chair the same weekend you plan your marketing strategy, but Faithe Wempen does offer a remarkably coherent plan for getting from Step A to Step Z at your own pace.
On Friday night, you'll do the necessary reality check: Is working home right for you? Saturday morning, set up your office space. Saturday afternoon, choose your computer equipment and related peripherals. Saturday evening, plan your connections to the world: your phone and fax services, mailing addresses, and so forth. On Sunday, you'll address the revenue side of the equation: finding customers, planning advertising and marketing, tracking the money you earn, and documenting your home office deduction should the IRS ever ask.
Wempen has a welcome talent for keeping things simple. Whether you're planning to run a global consultancy or a dog babysitting business, Set Up Your Home Office in a Weekend has the answers you're looking for. (Bill Camarda)
