The thought of starting and running a home based business may seem impossible. Whether it is family obligations or your current job situation you may feel you are obligated to everyone but yourself.
The good news I want to share with you is that you can maximize your time to build momentum for your business. You simply need to commit to your plans. The strategies listed below helped me to prioritize, which has led to the success of my home based business.
Strategy 1: Come up with a daily schedule, which will be your routine
Find a quiet place and make a list of the things that you need to do and come up with a schedule that is fitting. Make sure that you select start and end times for the tasks at hand. Make sure to include family time as well as weekends.
This exercise will give you a snapshot of what your week will look like. You can do this for the week or month whichever is easier for you. It is important that you do follow-ups on your schedule because you may be able to spend more time on your business.
Now that to schedule is in place discipline yourself to stick to it. If that means making sacrifices it will be worth it.
Strategy 2: Family first
Family is my top priority. I have a son who is in school; therefore, the majority of my work is done during the school day. If additional work has to be done, it’s done when he’s down for the night.
However, if you have to work when the house is busy, make sure you let your family know so that they can respect the time you need.
Strategy 3: Do not avoid distractions
Embrace and distractions will allow you to get done what has to be done without the end result being frustration. Always keep a pen and paper or a mini recorder with you so that you can jot down ideas as they come to mind. You can always come back later and deal with those ideas in your quite time.
As you can see prioritizing is the key to the success of your home based business. Take control of your time, change your habits, and watch your business build a momentum that is unstoppable.
