How To Work
At Home

Building a successful home based business depends upon your knowing how to work at home.  Following 6 easy steps can lead you to building a successful home business.

 When you have a job, you go into work for the purpose of working.  Distractions from family and friends, if they are even permitted, are kept at a minimum.   When you work at home, it is very easy to become distracted by non-business activities.

6 Easy Steps

How to work at home is just a matter of following these easy steps along with self discipline.

  • Step One - set up a work area for your home business. Ideally you want a place where you can make it strictly for business. This way when you go there you know it is for work. Additionally, it will make it easier to eliminate outside distractions and you get an added bonus of being able to write that area off on your taxes.
  • Step Two - set up a work schedule. When you have a schedule it makes it easier to get started. It becomes a commitment that you have made to yourself and your family. Remember, since you are the boss you can set a schedule that will work best for you and your family.
  • Step Three - have task laid out that you can immediately get into. This will help prevent procrastination.
  • Step Four - focus on the job at hand. Some find it handy to use a timer. You set it for the time you want to spend on the project, and do not stop until the timer goes off.
  • Step Five - prioritize. Being busy and working hard is not enough. You need to make sure most of your time is spent on activities that will make your money. The 80/20 rule states that 80% of your time should be spent on your most important activity.
  • Step Six - Setup work rules. Let family and friends know that at certain times you are not available. That at those times it is not ok to just stop in or call to just chat.
Following these simple steps on how to work at home will help you create an environment that will allow you to build a successful business and have more free time and money to live your dream life.
