Default What would you advise?

I am writing a book aimed at people who may be trying to establish a home office (either as a start-up business, or because their employer now allows -- or requires -- working from home) on a small budget. I thought I had reached an end, but the full manuscript is only about 40,000 words and I think the book is a little too skinny for credibility so I'm going to add a couple of chapters.

One new chapter will discuss telephone service, and whether to use conventional landline, VoIP, or just cellular.

And then I thought I might discuss stationery: business cards, letterhead, and envelopes. Not an issue for people who will be working remotely for an established employer, but certainly a consideration for anyone trying to start their own business. I plan to discuss the advantages (I would go as far as to say the "need") of having a consistent design for all, meaning not necessarily a flashy logo but at least choosing a professional-looking typeface, and designing all the stationery (and the web site header, if there is one) using the same basic layout and typeface.

What else could/should I discuss along that vein?
