We've been asked by E.ON, the energy provider, to find MNers who undertake any kind of paid work at home to share with us their top tips on making it work. So if you run your own business from home, are a freelancer, do a job where you work some of the week in the office and some at home or even if you regularly take work home with you please read on.

For example; please let us know what you do to make the most of your time at home (and not get distracted by MN!), what tools you employ to maximise time and optimise productivity, whether you have self imposed rules when you are working and how you manage to separate work and home life and how you organise your workspace/home office.

What tips would you have regarding children and your work from home - what kind of childcare do you use?

They're also looking for your tips on how to be energy efficient when working from home - how can you keep these costs under control whilst being at home? If you use the internet at home for your work, any tips on making the best of this would also be welcome.

Everyone who adds a tip or comment will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a £50 voucher for Capital Bonds, which can be spent at over 160 retailers.

E.ON will use your tips to compile into their "Top Tips for Working From Home" information, to coincide with National Work From Home Day (18 June). The tips will appear on E.ON's website and Facebook page as a way of sharing the combined expertise of Mumsnetters and E.ON energy advisers to make the most of working from home. Your MN name will not be used.

E.ON say "In January, we launched our Reset Review which is designed to examine every aspect of its relationship with customers - from tariffs and bills to how customers pay, how products are sold and how support is offered. Feedback from the Mumsnet community is vital to helping us push the reset button onour relationship with customers, putting customers back in control of their energy use at home and encouraging customers to make more informed tariff decisions to reduce any energy related worries."

thanks. MNHQ
