Having a companion while you work from home is one of my favorite things ever! Ideally, this is something you actually have to take care of, like a pet. My dog, Emmy, was my constant companion for the first 8 years I worked remotely. Glancing over my shoulder to see her, snoozing away, was enough to bring a smile to my face. Check out the link below to find shelters and rescues in your area with pets that are in need of a good home. You might just find your new best friend, and a fine work companion, too.
If pets aren’t your thing, or you can’t have one where you live, consider a pet rock. But, you have to give it a name or it doesn’t count!
