It has been a while since 3Dwalkthroughs.com posted one of its, “this post has nothing to do with 3D” blog entries. With that said, as the economy continues to struggle we all can benefit from the resource outlined in this post.
Last week I had the pleasure of speaking with Dina Santorelli, Editor and Publisher of Why Magazine. Why Magazine was launched in May 2007 by Dina and her business partner Lucille De Tingo on behalf of their company eLuna Media LLC.
Why, (an abbreviation of Work. Home. You.) is dedicated to those who know that working at home isn’t all about snooze buttons, bathrobes and bunny slippers; it is written for work-at-homers of all types–entrepreneurs, telecommuters and part-time home workers, both online and offline–and gives them the tools and information they need to keenly manage their business, their home and their life.
In today’s economy, many small businesses and entrepreneurs are going to have no choice but to streamline their overhead by finding more affordable office space (Shamless Plug – openofficespace.com) or relocating their business into a home office…perhaps a combination of both.
Anyone that has tried running a business from a home office learns pretty quickly it comes with a distinct set of challenges.
-Maintaining The Delicate Balance Between Work and Family
-Making Time For Exercise
-Knowing When To Turn Off Computer
-and the list goes on
Why Magzine is a bi-montly magazine that deliver the solutions to these challenges via an extremely user friendly and aesthetically pleasing interface. Interestingly, while Why Magazine is geared towards the work-at-homer, many of the solutions, tips and tricks offer on the site, can also help small businesses and entrepreneurs achieve a balance in a remote office setting.
