Moms, what are your tips for an at home business?
Here are a few things I've learned over the last 9 years of working from home:
- Make a schedule and stick with it. For example if you want to work 9-5, then do it and stick to that schedule or the business could quickly overtake your life. However, for the first year or two it may take more than 8 hours a day to get everything up an running depending on the nature of your business.
- To get new business or clients it takes constant marketing. Do a little bit every day or one day a week focus on marketing.
- When you first start a business don't expect to make money right away. It takes time and a lot of hard work.
- Make family a priority.
- Involve your family as much as possible.
Do you have any tips of your own?
I've made big progress in the staying organized category. I took the plunge and got myself a very fancy, very expensive planner... but it has been worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY.
