So, you are starting out on your new business venture and your spare room or study has now become your home office. It can be very difficult to settle into a home office and to switch from home to office mode. They secret is to deck out your home office like a real one, so when you close the door, you are at work and ready to build your business!
Posture is key. You need a proper office chair to stop you feeling tired, getting stiff shoulders and wanting to move. Also, when you are starting up a business long, long hours are involved so you need to be comfortable. This is where you should invest a little bit more to get the most out of your body and to not damage your back.
Are you running a retail outlet or market stall? It can be tiresome counting the cash and the coins, so why not invest in a money counter. After a long day out on the stall or in the store you can get the banking done quickly!
Shipping goods can be a painful exercise from home, but with the help of proper scales, which can weigh up to 300kgs you can pick, pack and prepare for the courier to collect from your home easily. No more lugging shipping boxes to the post office!
See your week ahead with a whiteboard. By installing one of these on the wall you are constantly reminded of targets and what you should be achieving so you don’t get distracted and wander into the kitchen for a snack!
Stay focussed and train your brain to know that home office means real business.
