Working for yourself online requires a bit of pre-planning and none more so than your Home Business Office Set Up.
It’s not hard to do and you don’t need a lot but if you plan ahead then you will make the whole process of working for yourself online a lot more productive and enjoyable.
5 Home Business Office Tips
1, Your Office Space.
If you can make your office space separate from the rest of the house then great. Having a designated space will not only keep you more focussed and away from the rest of the family but you wont be disturbing them too.
I originally worked from a bedroom which was fine during the day but caused problems if i wanted to work late at night.
2, A Diary.
Get yourself a diary that opens up to reveal the whole week ahead. A diary that reveals all 7 days spread over two pages.
This way you can see exactly whats going on without having to flick pages.
And make sure it has the space to write sufficient information in for each day.
3, A Computer.
I imagine you already have a computer of some sort be it a desk top or a lap top. But whatever it is i recommend one with as large a screen as possible.
My lap top has a screen of 17.5 inches which makes all the difference when you are working from it daily.
Too small a screen and you might find over time that it’s a struggle to work with.
4, A To Do List Pad.
A basic thing to have but in my mind super essential. Having at hand a specific pad for all your daily work tasks keeps you on track.
Knowing what you are meant to be doing and in what order keeps you on track and keeps the whole business together.
Without this type of pad you are just drifting through your work day.
5, Your Desk.
When i say desk i mean your space that you are going to working on.
It could be the kitchen table or a bedroom sideboard or of course an actual desk.
Whatever it may be, make sure its big enough to work on. There is nothing worse than having a space too small and fighting to work there.
You need room for your laptop, mouse, diary and to do list all laid out at the same time. If you can do this then you will be more productive.
