Make a part of your home your office

Either use a small room as an office or designate a section of a room as your workspace. Set yourself a routine of when to start and how long to work or how much to achieve each day. Do not allow yourself distractions like the TV to disrupt your work and use the time online productively and only for business. Limit any personal phone calls to outside your working time.

Remain positive

What you do, or how you conduct yourself during difficult phases of working from home will determine whether or not you get the results. Working from home means you can work anywhere, to succeed you must remain positive.
