How to Work From Home: From Surviving to Thriving

The goal of this course is to teach you the tools you need and the pitfalls to avoid when you make the decision to take your career out of the office and into your home.

Since COVID-19 many employees have been forced to work from home. This has been a stressful experience and has led to burnout for many employees. This course will teach you how to go from surviving while working from home to thriving while working from home. You will learn how to organize yourself and your environment to facilitate your best work. We will also provide guidance on how to avoid common complaints of the self-employed or a home-stationed workforce, suggest life hacks to help things flow, and give great resources from others who have successfully navigated this change. You'll learn about protecting yourself, your job, your family time, and your sanity. Also, this course will teach you how to set up the proper boundaries so your work life doesn't destroy your home life. Most of all, this course is designed to ensure that you step around the most perilous trap of all when it comes to working from home: it's not that you never have to go to work; it's that you never actually get to leave!
