Over at Lori Widmer’s Words on the Page, Lori tells how she dresses for her freelancing at home.
The theory, of course, is that if you (and you’ll see I am talking about you, not me, in a moment) get dressed for work, even if you’re working at home you’ll feel more professional and therefore do a better job.
Some agree, some don’t.
I don’t. I’ve tried putting on my shoes and even adding just a touch of makeup in order to work at home.
When I do this, I just feel silly. Suspect my productivity even drops a bit, but I don’t know how to test for that.
Of course, when I go out I clean up. When I meet clients I clean up even more, matching my the way I dress to either the client or the place we’re going to meet.
I’ll keep this open for a week or two and publish the answers.
