The Bedroom is Your Boardroom

You can turn your bedroom into a great office and there's just a few steps you need to take to achieve this

There comes a time in the life cycle of every business when expanding is essential to moving forward and this can happen to some before others.

Just because you are working from your bedroom this doesn’t mean you cant still be successful at what you do as many of the biggest companies started from bedrooms, garages and even college dormitories. Some great examples of this are Facebook and Microsoft which started from a college dormitory and a garage respectively.

By treating your dream like a business you will begin to make progress and the first thing you need to do is create the perfect work environment for yourself where you can feel comfortable and productive.

It doesn’t matter if you cant afford office space, your bedroom is now your office and your room should reflect this! The first thing to do would be to make sure that it is clean and free from clutter, as having a clear space will ensure a clear mind - so a good hoover wont go amiss.

Re-arrange your desk and just by sitting down at a table as opposed to sitting on your bed will put your body and mind in work mode which will help you to concentrate, if you don’t have a desk in your room then use the kitchen table - don’t forget to open those curtains and let some natural light in.

Don’t be disillusioned when you see the big boardrooms holding video conferences on TV, there isn’t anything there that you don’t already have in your bedroom, they just have bigger desks and bigger chairs!
