1. Set REAL Work Hours
This is very important to get your business productive and profitable. Then communicate your boundaries with family and friends to let them know when you are and are not available. Set real work hours so you take regular breaks and QUIT work on time as well.
2. Create a Functional Workspace
When you work from home, any location can serve as your home workspace. But it’s important to legitimize and optimize your time by designing a workspace that works with your natural space style preferences. It’s important to choose an office setup that helps you get and stay in flow.
3. Minimize Distractions
When working at home, some distractions are unavoidable! However, there are several strategies to help you minimize distractions while working at home. Learn some of the best anti-distraction strategies in the full blog post here.
4. Invest In Essential Equipment
When you have a home-based business, you must have the technical tools like fast and reliable Internet access, productivity apps that save you time, office supplies and equipment to be fully prepared so you can focus on work.
5. Manage Skills Gaps
If you are not an expert, it is BY FAR a better investment for you to hire someone who is to get the job done than it is for you to bootstrap it yourself. It’s worth it to invest in others who can save you your most valuable resource… time!
6. Establish Routines
Creating ongoing routines that support regular, necessary tasks will only help you manage your days while getting everything done. To stay on top of everything you need to do, and avoid backsliding, weekly maintenance helps.
7. Get Help
To achieve work-from-home success, your MOST important resource is you! So honor your own time. It’s important to set yourself up with appropriate support systems for child care, home maintenance tasks, and ongoing responsibilities that can easily derail your work time.
8. Weekly Family Meetings
The best way I’ve created consistent communication and alignment is to hold a Weekly Family Meeting (capitalized to show importance!) You’ll have the opportunity weekly to go through schedules (for everyone), explain responsibilities and schedules, and make sure they take what you do seriously.
9. Stay Social
To truly achieve work-from-home success and avoid burnout, you need to focus on ways to stay social in real life with real people! It’s easy to become wrapped up and consumed by your business. This will help you avoid loneliness and isolation.
10. Get Organized
Running your work-at-home business is not difficult, but it does take some time to get organized so you can focus your efforts on intentional action. To get organized for good means that you match your systems with your personality style.
