The article describes how working from home does not work for Janis Spindel, owner of a matchmaking service and Valerie Lichman Krieger, founder of a public-relations firm. Spindel found it chaotic sharing her work space with her children. She set up office in the next-door apartment. The separation without the distance worked well for her. For Krieger, the problem was that her work was infringing to her home life. So she has to separate her work by renting an office not far from her home.
