Online Business Managing Your Life When You Work From Home Part 1 Of 10

Now that my system is​ set up,​ all I have to​ do is​ check that my affiliate partners are sending me cash,​ suggest the​ odd joint venture to​ a​ partner,​ and stay in​ touch with my customers. I rarely spend more than three hours in​ front of​ my computer each day.

But it​ wasn’t always like that. it​ took a​ lot of​ effort and a​ lot of​ work to​ get into the​ position I’m in​ now. When I first started,​ it​ was a​ bit of​ a​ struggle to​ organize myself. My first website took ages to​ launch and while the​ other ones went up quickly,​ my family went days without seeing me.

Let’s be frank,​ if​ you​ don’t set up your business properly right at​ the​ beginning,​ you’re going to​ make your life much harder—and your income much lower.

The problem is​ that until now,​ you’ve always thought of​ your home as​ a​ place to​ relax and the​ office as​ a​ place to​ focus and work. Now you’re going to​ have to​ focus at​ home—and that’s not an​ easy shift to​ make. you​ need to​ keep the​ same rhythm (without stopping to​ watch your favorite daytime soap!) and the​ same kind of​ discipline you​ had when you​ had to​ commute every morning.

The first thing to​ do is​ to​ give yourself an​ office. I’m not talking about a​ laptop on​ the​ coffee table or​ a​ corner in​ the​ library; I mean a​ proper room with a​ door you​ can close and a​ desk full of​ goodies: from a​ computer with broadband to​ a​ place to​ put your safety clips. if​ you​ don’t have a​ spare room to​ start with,​ then use your bedroom. But if​ you’re serious,​ think about finding an​ office once your business gets running.

The next thing you’re going to​ need is​ a​ schedule—a realistic one. This is​ one of​ the​ greatest challenges when you​ begin working for yourself. at​ the​ end of​ each day,​ I’d make a​ list of​ all the​ tasks I was going to​ do the​ next day. if​ I got half of​ them done,​ I was lucky. I spent weeks frustrated and grumpy.

Once you​ get a​ feel for how long each task takes you,​ whether it’s approving a​ new site design,​ planning a​ new marketing program or​ answering customers’ emails,​ set yourself a​ timetable and keep to​ it. Turn off the​ radio,​ shut the​ office door and get to​ work! And at​ the​ same time,​ don’t get annoyed if​ the​ day ends before your work does.
