There are always two parts to a story, and how I came up with the name Working Naked for my website is no exception.
The first part is that when you start working from home, you’re stripped of any support you may have had in your corporate job, including an administrative assistant, technical staff and co-workers to help you brainstorm. In other words, you’re left naked.
The second part is that when I asked home-based business owners about their work-from-home habits, several of them told me that they work in their undies. They explained that they get out of bed, grab a cup of coffee, check e-mails, and then two hours later, they’re still sitting at their desk working. So working “almost” naked is a good way to describe this interesting way to work.
