Some people who want to have a real work at home job have trouble being productive on a consistent basis. If you are lucky enough to get to stay at home and work you need to take advantage of this opportunity. Here are six working from home tips to help you get more done every day with a real work at home job!
Isn’t it time you started earning more and spending less (both money and energy)? Once set-up, a home business affords you the enjoyment of working based around your time, schedule and requirements (with the only commute from the bedroom to the home office via kitchen).
If you do not feel the need for a written list, at least have a goal for that day. As a work from home on computer mother, I find that one or two main goals are all I need. And there are always emails to check, accounting, etc. for the slow times.
Likewise, it might be a good idea to disconnect your phone. You might tell yourself you won’t answer the phone while you’re working but once you hear it ring, you will start to wonder who is calling and why. More often than not, it is nothing important and just another way to cut into your productive time. Turning off the ringer and sending the calls directly to your voice mail is a great option. This will eliminate marathon phone calls from your gossipy aunt. If possible, get a separate line that you use only for work and instruct your immediate family that they can use that number only in emergencies.
There are hundreds of telemarketing companies in the US and some of them do hire telecommuters. I know a lot of work at home moms that do telemarketing for a living. Don’t let the thought of telemarketing scare you though. There are any legitimate companies out there that do legitimate work and pay you accordingly. Telemarketing doesn’t always mean sales either.
Be financially stable. If you are living paycheck to paycheck from your self-employment at this point, there’s absolutely no shame in getting a part-time job. If you’re constantly stressing about money, it can hurt your productivity. It can be a easy to find a part-time job only a few days a week, only at nights, etc., at times when you’re not work from home tips on your business anyway. Additionally, it can be a great way to keep active, interact with others, and help you keep a steady routine. On top of all this, if you have more lenience financially, you can have more time growing your business rather than just taking on any little job to stay afloat.
Decide whether you want to trade hours for dollars, or whether you want to sell products in a home business of your own. Telecommuting is becoming a popular method for both home workers and employers, so there are many companies who are willing to pay you to work for them.
