Your own home office soundtrack

Remember when you worked in a traditional office? Phones ringing non-stop, people chatting behind your desk as you interviewed Madonna, the sound of drawers opening, and tannoy calls asking the driver of LVY 367F to move his car from the visitor's car park? Wasn't that heaven? Well now you can recreate that magic with the fabulous Thriving Office CD. As the Thriving Office folk put it themselves so acutely: "Home businesses know they must seem successful to become successful. So they play Thriving Office while they're on the phone. This valuable CD is filled with the sounds people expect to hear from an established company, providing instant credibility. It's fast, easy and effective!" You can choose between two 37-minute tracks, 'busy' and 'very busy' (I know which one I'd pick, do you?) to provide instant credibility and there's even a free sample at the web site to convince you further. Forget the iPhone, this is what I want next Christmas.

    Erm. I'm not so sure about this. Why does a home business have to prove its credibility by having lots of background noise?

    Surely one of the benefits of running a business from home is that you can get lots done without being disturbed by all the noises of a 'thriving business' and clients benefit from this. Are clients more influenced by the sound of ringing phones in the background or by the quality of services that are the end result?

    I am not rushing online to order this one!

  2. I suppose it depends on how secure you feel in your home office. I suspect some homeworkers find the quiet a bit daunting so the CD would give them some selfconfidence. Personally I'd rather serenade my clients with Emma Kirkby than background rhubarb but then it takes all sorts.
