How to Successfully Work At Home with Your Own Home Business
By Patty Scheeler
To own your business and to work at are the two most often uttered phrases when an employee is asked what they would love to do instead of going to work every day.
Perhaps it is the sense of accomplishment that goes hand in hand with owning a business, or maybe it is the joy of being at in familiar surroundings while still doing work that will earn you a check. Maybe the great feeling you get being able to stay at with children or be there when they get from school.
Whatever the case may be, successfully working at with your own business is not something that happens by chance but instead something that needs to be planned.
Here are some tips on working at with your own business:
* Set up a office.
Working at has many perks, but if you do not have a dedicated work space, you will not be able to enjoy them very much. After all, your business’ credibility will suffer if prospective customers hear the Disney channel in the background. Set apart some work space that will allow you to close a door or at least to be undisturbed by whatever goes on in another part of your home.
* Set some office hours and stick to them.
It is tempting to devote every waking hour
to your new business, but keep in mind that doing so will not only lead to a quick burnout, but it will also counteract any positive experiences you could have while working at – such as spending more time with your family, actually cooking them a nutritious breakfast, or being and available when the school bus drops off the kids. It is not fair to your family to work during off hours!
* Learn to say “no.”
For reasons that may invite endless speculation, when friends and family hear that you are now working from home, many will take this as an open invitation to drop by and visit, request that you watch their kids, or run some errands. It is important to gently but firmly say “no” when these requests fall during your business hours. Remember, you took this step so you could be with your family! If you begin toying with your business hours to help out everyone who asks, you will find yourself compromising the time you have scheduled for your family!
* Be innovative, think outside the box, and do not be afraid to try something new.
This is true especially when it comes to marketing your new business! If, for example, you run a pet grooming business and if you own a dog, go ahead and dress the little canine up in a cute costume and then hand out flyers at the local park.
As you can see, running a successful business depends on your ability to work at undisturbed and with all the discipline that working for an employer previously demanded.
