It is our opinion that everyone should start their own home business. A home based business can be worked on as little as a few hours a week, and can grow to produce you some amazing income.
One of the biggest challenges to starting our own online business is staying focused. Here are 6 tips for staying focus when starting your home business.
1. Break It Down:
If you have a large task to tackle, it is always easier when you break it down into smaller components. You’ll find it easier to focus because you won’t feel as overwhelmed. For example, ‘Register a domain name’ can be broken down into: ‘Think of five domain name ideas’, ’search if the domain name is available’, ‘purchase the domain name’ and so on.
2. Keep A ‘To Do’ List:
Once you’ve broken down major tasks into smaller ones, make and keep a ‘to do’ list. If you find you are not completing the tasks you have set out to do you need to figure out why, and then correct it.
3. Schedule Your Time:
Every evening, decide on three to five tasks on your ‘to do’ list that you wish to accomplish the following day or week. Stay focused on these tasks and only move on to the next tasks on your list once the previous one was completed.
4. Set Goals:
This is critical. There is nothing that will keep you more focused than setting goals and writing out your goals. Visualize exactly where you want to be in a month, six months and a year.
In a month’s time, do you want to have registered a business name and have a fully functional home office set up? In three months time, how many clients or team members do you want? How much revenue do you want to generate in a six month’s time?
5. Say No:
Be assertive and carve out more time for your home business. Saying ‘no’ to that extra demand by your boss every once in a while can get you home one hour earlier a couple of days a week.
How about watching less TV? That’s a BIG time zapper. Imagine how you could channel that extra time into your home business.
6. Keep a Business Mind Set
