I feel like the majority of my social-media time is spent pinning, reblogging or double-tapping pictures of office spaces, but I've never really had my own. The closest thing I've ever had to a desk is my lap or dining/kitchen table, which is often surrounded by a whole lot of food that is (needless to say) the most distracting thing on earth. Finally I decided to make an effort with my room and turn a corner of it into my own little babestation of a work-place. Consider it a work in progress.
With the right desk comes motivation, and whilst I'm still not 100% happy with the outcome I've noticed that I'm a lot more interested in getting out of bed in the morning when I have a fancy jar to drink out of and pretty notebooks to write in. Check and check. If you've been following me for a few months you may remember when I started an online course in social media marketing. Just a few months later and I'm already nearing the end of my studies with a brand new qualification in site. Oh, and I learnt a few things too of course - coming soon in future posts.
In case any of you are interested in working from home or starting an online course I've decided to put together a few tips, tricks and general facts about what it's like.
- Think hard about the course you're choosing! You're not obliged to study online so make sure you spend your money on something that you'll either really enjoy or learn a lot from.
- Motivation is key with self-studying. Although you can complete your studies in your own time you don't want to fall out of a working routine, so make some space in your diary for a few solid hours in front of the computer.
- The online tutors really are there to help you, so make sure you use them as much as possible. Realistically you're paying for the help and support you get alongside any paperwork and booklets, so it's best to get your moneys-worth.
