When you’re sitting in a corporate office, working from home sounds like a dream. But, often, when you’re working at home, there are little ones running about leaving you little to no quite time to concentrate. There may be times you find yourself longing for that quite space again. I guess it’s that “grass is always greener” syndrome!
If you find yourself in a work at home situation, a little planning and preparation can go a looong way for running your business successfully.
Over the summer I had the opportunity to read How to be a Work at Home Mom by Prerna Malik and gleaned a ton of useful info that I’ve been implementing gradually.
For example, she shares practical ways organizing, cleaning, and decluttering benefit the work at home mom. Of course, that’s right up my alley so those have been pretty easy for me. But she also talks about budgeting, setting up your workspace, meal planning, and ways to keep your kids engaged. There are other helpful tips about dressing for success and staying fit as a WAHM.
Now that school is back in session and I have a few hours of real, uninterrupted work time each week, I’ll be working full force on the meat of the book:
- Time Management (including tips for the online world)
- Growing your business
- Pitching clients
- Ways to grow your business
- Overcoming pitfalls like isolation or lack of focus
- Tips from successful WAHM’s
- Brainstorming for business worksheet
- Business budgeting worksheets
- Time management tracker
- Mentoring resources
- Free business listing directories
- Press release submissing sites
- Productivity tools
- and more.
