Communication Lines: The 'Net and Phones

Talking on the Go

Not everyone starting a business from home has the resources to immediately buy such higher-end business equipment as computers, faxes, copying machines, and so forth. However, we will let you in on a secret: The most valuable single piece of office equipment you can buy—especially if you're a parent with kids underfoot—is a portable phone or a headset.

That's right. For under $100 you can buy a portable phone that will enable you to roam through your home. This, we assure you, is the only way work and kids can be under the same roof. It allows you to duck your head into the family room to make sure your children aren't hanging from the rafters while you've been quietly working on a grant proposal on PowerPoint®, which you are now discussing with your client.
