As a business woman, staying on top of my business — the ins and outs and its daily operations — is a must for me. To do so at the comfort of my home seemed impossible at the time. But with the right gadgets and tools of the trade that I have learned throughout my years in the business, I was able to do so. And I want to share how I did it with you.

With smartphones becoming one of the most predominant gadget and service available nowadays, some may think that having a basic home phone service is not necessary. This is a wrong notion. Nothing compares to the valuable purpose of having one at home, most especially with a business at tow.

Dependability and reliability are what a home phone offers. Smartphones may lose their signal and can go out or service, sometimes when you needed it the most. Cell phone services can get intermittent at times and is not a completely perfect communication tool as well. With a home phone, you are always available for your caller, unless you are not at home. But of course, you have an answering machine for that so you basically would get all the correspondence from relatives and clients with a phone line connected directly to your house.

Landline phones are also great for emergencies. You will never know if you’ll need to call 911 immediately. With a home phone, you know exactly where the landline phone is when you need it. A landline phone is also easily tracked so emergency numbers like 911 can easily identify your location. They do not run out of batteries as well and can be conveniently interconnected in several places in your home. Not all people have their smartphones in their pockets the whole day at home. Having several phone units connected to your landline in key areas In your home smells convenience.

Savings is also what home phone offers. I would suggest getting a home phone and internet bundle together. With a landline phone, you can get unlimited long distance calls at a cheaper price compared to a cell phone provider. This is also a nice reserve in case your mobile phone runs out of minutes in the middle of the month.

Sticking with the basics, just like the home phone, is one of the important things that I have learned not only for the household but for my business at home as well. A mobile gadget is nifty and essential when you are on the go, but a home phone is a dependable home buddy you can count on.
