5 Home business bloopers to avoid
An article from guest blog writer, Matt Press, Splash Copywriters, looking at 5 home business bloopers to avoid.
Okay, so you have decided to take a leap of faith and walk away from your 9-5 to start an exciting new home business career.
However, running a home-based business is far from easy and that is probably why more than half of these wannabee entrepreneurs usually fail within the first 6 months if not sooner. But that needn’t be the case because we have unearthed the 5 most common mistakes that lead to these issues. So if you are thinking about creating your own startup soon, do yourself a massive favour and take a look at these 5 home business bloopers right away.
Home Business Bloopers 1 – Balance Is Everything!
That well- worn cliché is absolutely bang on the money because working at home may seem like a great deal but if you fail to draw up some firm boundaries from the very start, you can look forward to having plenty of problems. Work out a schedule when you are not to be interrupted and also allow yourself enough breaks from your hectic routine. This will allow you to maximise your efforts and you will avoid any potential burnout.
Home Business Bloopers 2 – Get Out More!
Unless you plan on working out in the great outdoors, remember to take a break now and then. Being chained to your home office desk is actually worse than what you just walked away from. Plan a little social time during the day and even getting dressed for work can help to break up the monotony of living where you work.
Home Business Bloopers 3 – Organise Yourself!
If you are serious about making a success of yourself, ensure that you work out a decent routine before the day starts. Avoid a messy office and draw up a plan that is easy to stick with from the outset. Use a proven filing system and always have your desk nice and clear of any clutter, electronic or otherwise.
Home Business Bloopers 4 – Discipline!
Although it is cool to be able to avoid that hideous commute every day, remember to create a distinct border between home and work life. You may be required to do a little more around the house but try to do this before or after your working day occurs.
Home Business Bloopers 5 – Business Planning!
This is the most common reason for home-based business failure, so don’t fall into that trap. Even if you feel that you have enough work coming in, remember to draw up a plan for expansion as well as a very tight income and expenditure budget. Set objectives that can be met but also aim a little higher than you need to because you never know when a dry period will strike.
Nobody can guarantee that your home based business will succeed but if you avoid these home business bloopers, you will at least be giving yourself a far better chance of doing just that!
