How To Balance Your Home And Business When You Work At Home

How Would You Like To Work At Home And Earn An Income From The Internet?

Sounds good, doesn’t it, and many people would  love to work at home. They imagine themselves rolling out of bed, walking a few feet and starting work in their home office as they sip their morning coffee.

Without the daily office politics, commute, and water cooler gossip they feel they’ll be more focused and, ultimately, more efficient. However, with this freedom comes some unforeseen drawbacks that can affect your stress level. You may find it difficult to keep yourself organized and motivated without the pressures of a boss or management team.

Home Based Business – Tips And Advice

how to and home business

When you work from home and not required to clock in and out at a specific time, you are responsible for your own time management. To keep yourself and your home office organized so you are more productive and have less stress, try the following tips:

  1. Keep a separate office for a home business or specific work area in your home. This can be as simple as setting up a large desk and a small filing cabinet in a quiet room. Make sure you have plenty of lighting. Keep it clean and organized so you can find the materials you need to do your work.
Office For A Home Business
  1. Learn how you are more productive. Identify what type of work environment helps you work at your best. Are you more productive when you’re working at your desk or sitting on the couch? Your home office is your domain. Add personal items and things that help give you a positive attitude to help make you more productive.

How To Work To A Schedule

  1. Create a work schedule template and work from it to schedule specific tasks. Plan your work schedule by identifying your most productive time and when you have the most energy. If you are a morning person and think more clearly in the mornings then do your most difficult and important task during this time. If you have children you may want to begin work after you get them off to school, before they wake up or even during their nap.
  1. Set your business hours and stick to the schedule. Just because you work at home doesn’t mean you can take a break whenever you want because there’s no boss to tell you to get back to work. You must manage your time by setting your business hours and following them, after all you are your own boss.

Also, many people or potential clients/customers may assume since you work from home you are available 24/7. Avoid interruptions by setting specific office hours when other people can contact you regarding business. Communicate this – put your business hours on your business cards, website, e-mails, and newsletter etc.

Home Business Plan

  1. Plan, negotiate and prioritize. No matter how hard you try, your business and personal lives will collide. Don’t stress out when personal interruptions affect your business life. Learn to detach from your work mode, to focus and address the interruption and resolve it so that you can move forward. Then switch back to work mode and get back to your regular work schedule.

Eventually, you will learn to switch between business mode and personal mode throughout the day.  There can be a productive balance between work and life when you work at home.

  1. Hello Mat and thank you for your comment.

    Glad to hear you are a member of wealthy affiliate and hope you are getting stuck into the training and lessons.

    Of course if you have a ‘Day Job’ your time will be limited for your Work At Home Business.

    This shouldn’t be a problem if you can create a schedule that you know you can stick to.

    Even if you can only spare an hour or perhaps two hours each day with a schedule you can accomplish quite a lot.

    Whereas if you don’t have a time-table you will find you are not achieving very much and of course that time is wasted.

    So, thinking cap on and sit down with a pen and paper and outline just what a normal day is for you.

    List all the things you do every day and see if you can create a plan round them.

    Maybe first thing in the morning you could do an hour on your home business and then again at night another hour.

    Its surprising what you can get done when you have a schedule and stick to it.

    If you get stuck then get in touch with me within wealthy affiliate.  I will do my best to point you in the right direction.  If I can’t there are plenty other members who I’m sure will do their best to put you on the right track.

    To your eventual success with your home business and have a great day.

    Sincere Regards.

  2. Hello TG and many thanks for reading my article.

    First off let me say that a Schedule really is a MUST HAVE when you are working from home to build a business.

    You must create a workable time-table and stick to it.

    Its a lot better to set aside a particular couple of hours at night when you know there will be no interruptions.

    Make sure that people know this is your time and will not be available.

    Switch the TV and radio and your phone off would be the first thing I would do.

    If those are switched on somewhere else in the house then make sure your ‘Home Office’ is as far away as possible so you have peace and quiet.

    Having a set couple of hours after work and the evening meal will work wonders for your productivity.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment and now all I’m going to say is  –  Onwards And Upwards To Your Eventual Success.

    Have an awesome day wherever you are in the world.

  3. Hi, Robert.
    Yes, working from home has its benefits- I am still on the 9 to 5 shifts but on my way to home business!
    What complicated me the most was organizing my schedule, the first days I worked when “I had the time” but now realize is something I must work on.
    The funny thing now is that I decided to work on my afternoons, but could be until very late just in front of my computer.
    I will put into practice your ideas and open a small and serious scheduled so I won’t be getting myself extremely tired.

  4. Hi Robert,
    Love your post. You’ve created an easy to follow read of how to work from home. You’ve talked about the business plan, prioritizing your day, when you are the most productive, etc. This is really great information and of course the recommendation for WA. What a great concept and execution WA is – I am a few months in an have learned so much.
    Have you worked from home for a long time? Personally I never have for my full time gig, just more of some side deals I am working. I’ve had some great friends work from home for several years and they’ve all enjoyed it. The only challenge they have had is the blurring the line of work and home.
    Thanks again!
