Productivity Improvement Method for Home Business Owners!
Hey everyone, Joe Stewart here! Hope everyone is having an awesome President’s day weekend! Today I wanted to take some time and write you a brief article that will cover a few tips and tricks that I use on a day to day basis to increase my productivity in my home business. When you run a home business, YOU are the boss! So it is totally up to you to improve your productivity so you remain effective, and keep your business profitable!
It takes a lot of time, energy, and focus in a home business to have everything running smoothly and quickly turning a profit. The problem with most people is they get started in business, then sit back on the lazy boy and sit there… waiting for checks to “magically roll in”. It doesn’t work that way folks… Below I will go over some things I do to increase my productivity while working at home.
Increase Productivity Tips and Tricks
-You must set realistic goals and tasks for yourself every month, week, even day.
-When doing your work routine for the day whether it be actively prospecting, or doing some passive marketing like this blog post, or recording a video of yourself, set a stopwatch of timer. Only allow 30 minutes to an hour for each assignment. You don’t want to get stuck on one project all day. Try this and watch your productivity increase.
-More than 90% of your time must be spent on income producing activities. For a home business owner, the only two things that bring us money every week is marketing and communicating with prospects. Nothing more, and nothing less!
-Take a 15 minute break every hour or so. Go outside, walk around your neighborhood, walk your dog, have a glass of water. Sitting in front of your computer at your desk all day isn’t fun… probably not good for you either.
-Exercise as much as you can! You would be surprised how much this helps increase productivity and can even bring up your energy levels. Go for a walk, run, bike ride, or swim. Get in a routine of doing this and watch your energy levels go up as time goes on! Try it!
-Check and reply to your emails twice a day, set times for this. Like once at 9am and again at 5pm. Read and respond to emails at these two times only, instead of refreshing your inbox over and over every hour to see if a lead or client wrote you.
-On top of your daily work from home routine, you also want to set away some time in the morning or at night for education. Whether it is reading a book or educational magazine, or watching an online webinar or course you purchased. We can sit here and market all day, but we still have to feed our brains with new information everyday to stay on top of things, and stay ahead of our competition.
