I cannot tell a lie... For the past couple of weeks, I have not had it all the way together when it came to balancing Family and Running My Business from home!
I spoke to one of my mentors last week and he asked me, "So what are you excited about doing over the weekend?" And I had no answer for him. I literally had nothing on my calendar for the weekend and realized that I hadn't put anything on my calendar for next week. And when working from home and building a business, not having anything scheduled and on your calendar every single week is a sure fire way to accomplish NOTHING.
And so I immediately broke out my calendar and started scheduling all of my companies upcoming events and trainings. I'm doing something a little different and I'm scheduling my week on my phone. I usually schedule everything on a paper calendar (Old School :) but I decided to try using the calendar on my phone which is linked to my google calendar. We shall see how this goes... lol
I also started planning out my social media content for the week so that posting will be a breeze and I'll have time to knock out all of my income producing activities without worrying about what to post. Although I seem to never run out of content ideas (Thank God!) I still like to do some planning to give me ideas of what to post, just in case I draw a blank.
With all of that said, let's get to some cool tips for you!
Working smarter, not harder, AND being able to do it from home is something that anyone can learn to do, especially if you truly want to work from home or run your own home-business.
Here are some things that I've adopted into my everyday life that help me run my business more efficiently and I'm sure they will help you too:
1) Make a schedule for yourself and stick to it. You can see where your time will be spent after you create a timetable.
