Aahhh, the joy of working from home and doing business in your bathrobe. I’m guilty as charged and have been doing precisely that since 1999. And, truthfully, that is the reason you’ll NEVER see me use a webcam to communicate with people — some days I’m just too scary to be seen..LOL.
However, the key to success is to never admit that you’re not dressed — I used to tease one of my clients who would say, "I’m not even out of my PJs yet!" And I would respond, "You know, unless you tell them, no one has a clue about what you’re wearing, and probably no one cares, as long as you can successfully help them do what they’ve asked."
It’s a great relief to no longer be judged by your looks. I think that we women are the worst culprits — many times it’s the female making catty comments about another woman’s appearance. And, yet females are the biggest complainer that men judge them by their appearance and don’t value them for their intellect. Sigh, sometimes it’s really a woman eat woman world out there– wouldn’t we all be happier working from home?? <g>
If you’re happily working from home (with or without bathrobe — and if you’re working in your birthday suit, that’s waaaay TMI..<g>) and want an excuse to tell the world about your business, jump on the celebration bandwagon on Monday, Feb. 12, 2007, which has been officially designated as "Doing Business in Your Bathrobe Day". Created by WebMomz.com co-founder Kristie Tamsevicius several years ago, DBIYBD is a great excuse to contact your local media about how much fun you have in your bathrobe when you go to work each day. Kristie has created a press release you can adopt and send to your local media and offers some opportunities for mention on her site.
