Success, as they say, comes when preparation meets opportunity. One important aspect of showing you’re prepared is looking the part – whether it be from your home office, shared space, or at a new office downtown. That can admittedly be challenging when you’re an entrepreneur, especially when your dog is barking during client calls, the height of your kitchen table doesn’t match your office chair, and charging your phone is the most you slow down all day.
We gathered a list of handy upgrades that prepare you for when opportunity comes knocking:
Put Your Best Face Forward:
Home offices are where the magic happens for countless of entrepreneurs. That said, it’s still hard to look the part from the inside of your home with the standard embedded webcam in your laptop. Check out the Logitech Webcam C930e to upgrade your virtual look to HD 1080p video quality. Easy desktop collaboration makes client interaction that much easier and professional, especially when they demand face-to-face interactions.
Sit Easy and Work Comfortably:
You sit in your office chair at least 8 hours out of every day. That’s close to 2,000 hours a year! A good chair can be hard to come by when you’re office is part of your home, but The Gesture, inspired by the movement of the human body, is the first chair designed to support our interactions with today’s technologies. The New York Times just offered an in-depth review, giving it a solid endorsement in the process.
Be Productive Anywhere:
Work never stops, even when you’re moving to various appointments and meetings. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the iPad takes your office with you, and with a six month battery life and aluminum screen cover, you won’t have to worry about scratches, cracks, wires or charge.
Double Up The Monitors:
Feel limited with only one monitor to navigate? Use two! You’ll feel less overwhelmed by the cluster of documents, presentations, and spreadsheets cluttering up your smaller desktop. Let your creativity flourish with a cleaner view of design and project outlines. There are plenty of studies that indicate two monitors make you more productive, though those don’t account for using them to watch YouTube videos. (Hint – don’t do that.)
Block Out Distractions:
Speaking of distractions, work is hard enough with all the emails, apps and phone calls. That’s why the Logitech Wireless Headset Dual H820e is clutch for entrepreneurs who work in different working environments. It blocks out sound, provides wireless range that won’t interfere with Wi-Fi® devices, and has an intuitive mute button perfect for calls in noisy, fast-paced environments.
