Time Management Is KeyWritten by Charles Fuchs
Having a home based business can be overwhelming. When you work at home, there is a lot to do for both your home based business, your home and you family. The key to making a home based business work is managing your time wisely. When you work at home, other tasks can interfere with what you want to accomplish, so it is important to keep in mind goals of your home based business.
Make lists each day of what you want to accomplish with your home based business, as well as all things you need to do that day like taking you child to piano lessons and cutting grass. Use those lists to keep yourself focused on daily tasks of your home based business.
Prioritize tasks of your work at home business. It is not necessary to spend hours on little tasks of your home based business. Decide what are most important things to be done with your home based business and do them. Allot smaller amounts to time to less important tasks.
Keep good records for your home based business. Not only will this help you stay out of trouble at tax time, but it will show your customers that you are organized and can run a home based business efficiently. Just because you work at home does not mean that you can be sloppy. Find ways to organize yourself, your life and your home based business that work for you.
Set regular work at home hours for yourself. A home based business does not run itself and you need to put in time and effort to make it successful. This does not mean you can't adjust your schedule, it just means that you generally have to have time set aside to work at home without interruptions.
Why Not Take The Easy Way?Written by Elaine Currie, BA (Hons)
My article entitled "The Easy Money Picture" has been criticised by some people who do not believe working online is an easy way to make money and by others who do not believe people should be told an Internet business is an easy way to make money. Although I do agree that people should not be subjected to hype which tells them they can easily become rich overnight if they sign up for an Internet business opportunity, I stand by every word of my article because I do believe that working on Internet is an easy way to make money.
The detractors say that work is involved when you have an Internet business. Sure, it requires work but how hard is it to sit in front of a computer? I'm not saying no work is required but, on a scale compared with mining coal or fighting fires, I think working on internet is a very easy way to make money; we're not exactly risking life and limb here.
Consider these two options and tell me which one you think is easy way to make money. Option one requires you to leave home each day at a time dictated by your boss (you know: guy who wouldn't let you have time off when your mother was sick), commute to a place your boss has decided upon, wear clothing approved by boss, do what boss orders you to do for eight hours or so and commute back home when you finish. You get vacations but they have to be taken when it suits your boss and he shows no consideration for your partner's schedule or your kids' schooling.
Option two allows you to work from home for hours you want, doing work you choose. There is no commuting on crowded trains or roads, you can wear what you like and take vacations when it suits you. I sincerely think latter option represents easy way to make money.
