Description:Â When Melissa Thompson began developing her online counseling business, TalkSession, in February, she worked out of a Manhattan apartment. â€œAfter three days, we referred to it as purgatory,â€ she says. â€œThe lines became so blurred between living and working, productivity was affected. I woke up on weekends and my walls were all covered in Post-it Notes. Itâ€™s not good because youâ€™re already thinking about your business all the time and you need a break.â€
