Thanks to dumblittleman I just discovered Productivity501, I entered to read the post about Convincing your Boss to let you work from home, which was great. I liked the way Mark sets his strategy.

1. Stealth Mode Research – The Technology

first make sure it is possible, then

2. Positioning Yourself for Success

improve your status at work to show that you can work efficiently without supervision, then

3. Determine the Business Reason You Should Be Allowed to Work From Home

choose the correct reasons from your Boss’s point of view to why it is better that you work from home. then

4. Prepare your Proposal

preferably written, and allow for

5. A Successful Trial Period


On the same site I found other excellent posts like Your Own Business and Getting More Done There are also some nice affilliated sites in the same series like Money501 and Profit501, I will be looking into those more, and might come with separate posts on them in the future.
