Are you a WFHP? Are you tired of the embarrassment of being unclear about your status? As a long time WFHP myself I know how important it is to have a clear understanding of yourself and what your work life is.
Don’t you wish you had a definitive way to know your status?
I knew you did, so I put together this short quiz to help you out because I’m always looking out for you. I’m a giver like that.
After you answer these questions you’ll know you’re a WFHP if you don’t have time to count up how many yes’s you got.

Did you take notes during your last conference call with a purple crayon on paper plates because your folio pad was filled with drawings of dinosaurs by a young up and coming artist, and because you hid the real pens so well after the aforementioned artist used them to re-design the wallpaper in the foyer that even you can’t find one?
