Home office, home address?

As I was writing my Christmas cards this year, I realised that I don't actually have to hand the addresses of several people I know really rather well - instead, I sent their cards to their PO Box addresses that they use for business. Partly this must be due to their obvious reluctance to give out their home details which is completely understandable. However, I've never found this to be a problem. Quite the reverse in fact, since people/clients are often intrigued to discover about my homeworking environment, especially when they discover I do it all from a garden office at the end of my garden. I wondered how other homeworkers reading this deal with the problem?

    You can see from a few features pn our site that virtual offices are groing in popularity with homeworkers.

    If you don't want to give out your home address, then you can purchase an address from one of a growing number of providers.

    On Friday, I spoke with a lady from Regus who has launched their Virtual Office Product and she says they are receiving hundreds of requests from homeworkers per month.

    Alex - hope you had a great Christmas but all that merriment has affected you - the link to Home Office Design in your next post is broken!

    All the best, Emma

  2. Thanks Emma. If Regus are chasing the Home Pound then that's another indicator of the growing importance of homeworkers in the UK. Link is fixed now - no more fizzy pop for me this year.
