What Makes The Smarter Home Office unique?
IIt uses the insights of Architectural Psychology.
  Architectural Psychology:  the western science of how the design and arrangement of a space positively or negatively impacts how people feel and function in that space. It’s like feng shui without the woo-woo factor.  The Smarter Home Office is filled with “Aha” moments when you discover simple solutions to your most baffling problems. Solutions that “feel right” and work better. The Smarter Home Office is short and to the point: 80 pages filled with practical advice and real-life illustrations.

Case Study: JS’s Home Office: From Dungeon to Delight

JS hated working at her desk. She loved her desk, but working at it didn’t feel right.  Instead she had her papers scattered over her dining room table – far from her computer and office storage. She felt disorganized and frustrated.

Using what she learned from The Smarter Home Office she moved her desk near the window, converted a nearby cabinet into home office storage and found a handy but overlooked internet cable connection. As a final touch she placed treasured mementos nearby for inspiration. “The desk in the corner is working out really well!   I like working on my computer there.  When I’m sitting at my desk, my husband comes into the room and says I am sitting at my throne!”

“Great Book! Great ideas! Short and to the point.”
-Susan Guild, author
