Working from Home Woes & What to Do About It (MarketHer Episode #4)

By Britt Schwartz

Working from Home Woes & What to Do About It (MarketHer Episode #4) Blog Feature

Today, nine million U.S. employees, or 2.9% of the total U.S. workforce, work from home at least half of the time. That's up from 1.8 million in 2005 -- big jump right?

Almost half of IMPACT’s employees don’t work in the Wallingford office and we’ve been open and honest about how we operate with our clients and prospects -- but that doesn't mean the arrangement doesn't come with its share of challenges. .

In this episode, our hosts break down the work from home woes and what to do about it, while keeping it light and funny.

A few of the topics we covered are:

  • How to mentally separate yourself from “home” when you’re working
  • How not to get upset with your husband over blueberries 
  • Ways to deal with the guilt of not doing housework while working during the day
  • Letting go of the feeling that you’re not really working - and communicating that to your family and friends
  • Planning ahead for lunch and dinner, seems simple until you forget to do it
  • Why working in your bedroom is the worst idea ever
  • How getting out of the house helps you be a better remote employee

Angela Myrtetus

 500px_Square_Angela_Myrtetus.jpg"I’m a Senior Strategist here at IMPACT. I’m a mom of three and the wife to a radio personality here in Philly. While both our jobs can be demanding, we love our careers in the creative industry. Balancing all that with three kids, however, is why I’m doing this show. 

I still have things to learn, but also have things to share on how I’ve figured it out thus far. My vision for this show is to create a safe place for everyone, especially women, to share their challenges and successes on balancing work life. We all don’t do it perfectly, but you may have a gem of a tip that will save someone’s life - literally and figuratively."

Brie Rangel

500px_Square_Brie_Rangel.jpg"Hi everyone! I’m the Director of Client Services here at IMPACT in my day job, and wife and dog mom every other minute of the day. This show is important to me because as I’ve grown in my career, I’ve realized there really are unique challenges women face and not a ton of resources (other than generic self-help) to help us figure it all out. I want this show to be an outlet for anyone who experiences those challenges so they can relate and hopefully learn new strategies and tactics for how to deal.

My long-term vision would be for us to build a community of strong men and women who can help change the social norms that put us in these challenges the first place. But first things first, check out our first episode :)"

Britt Schwartz

500px_Square_Britt_Schwartz.jpg"Hi, there! I’m Britt Schwartz, a 30-ish homeschooling mom of 5 and a Senior Strategist at IMPACT. My life isn’t conventional and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

MarketHer is something I’m extremely passionate about because throughout my career in creative agencies and in client-facing roles, I’ve experienced situations and challenges that I wish I would have a place to turn to that would have made me feel not alone and to find real solutions."
