Sharon Stasney has written a wonderful series of books on feng shui. This book, Feng Shui Your Work Spaces is a bit hard to find, but worth the effort.
Sharon says, "Whether you are in an office situation or conduct your business at home, the choices you make when setting up your work area establish the tone for everything that happens there. It's easy to create an attractive environment that promotes professional advancement when you know more about feng shui..."
Without delving into the intricacies of feng shui, I find that it simply promotes good sense and good design principles. Don't sit with your back to a door - don't block a window with a tall filing cabinet - pay some attention to the materials and colors you use. These ideas are easy to implement and can make a big difference in the way you FEEL in your workspace. And I believe that how you feel in your space is half the battle of being successful in your business.
