Very Necessary: 5 things you need in your office

5 things you need in your office!

1. Kikkerland BO14 Beaver Bottle Opener – You’d be surprised how much you miss having a bottle opener until you realize you don’t have one at all.

2. Your motivation prominently displayed – There are going to be days when it’s really, really rough. Having your motivation (spouse, kids, house, whatever) in front of you in a nice frame will help keep you going.

3. Vanroe ‘Orchid in Black’ Designer Enamel Compact Mirror in Gift Box- I’m telling you, there’s nothing like getting ready for a meeting and knowing for sure your teeth are foodcrud-free.

4. Doctor Who Adipose Stress Toy – I mean…no explanation required, right?

5. How to Win Friends & Influence People – One of the classics on business how-to. But even if it isn’t your cup of tea, having a library of business and motivational books around you are great for when you need a quick pointer.
