If you work from home, you keep a lot of balls in the air. I’ve been doing this myself for about a dozen years, so I know that life in a home office can either be crazy or remarkably simple. The choice is up to you.
Here are a few rules I use in working from my home office.
Five Ways to Run a Great Business from Home
1. Have a definite start and stop time each day.
Turn off your computer at the end of the day and “go home.”
2. When you’re at work, work.
Don’t allow yourself to just “throw in a load of wash.”
3. Book vacation time.
And, hold it sacred.
4. Don’t work with a laptop monitor and keyboard.
Buy the largest monitor and best keyboard you can afford. This will save your eyes, neck, wrists and sanity!
5. Back up your computer files on a regular schedule.
And save the backups offsite.
