Your Home Office

  Organize your home office with good lighting, shelving and file cabinets to easily find important papers, books, demo products, and customer information.  In most homes today computer, printer and desk are probably already in place.  If not, check out local thrift stores for gently used office equipment.  If you save the receipt, most thrift stores will refund or exchange non-working equipment within a reasonable amount of time.  Ask them their return policy before purchasing used equipment. 

  Try to work smarter, not harder.  If your office is not organized, you will spend more time looking for things, than working.

Your Mindset

  Have you ever heard the saying, “If you think you’re going to fail, you will”?  Well, it’s totally true.  We can do anything we set out to do, as long as we set our mind to it.  If you find yourself thinking or saying “I can’t do this”, stop right away!  Try a fun experiment; Erase “can’t” from your vocabulary, and see what happens.

Dreams And Goals

  In order to be successful in any business, you need to have a dream, a good reason to work hard, and keep you motivated.  Think about what is most important to you.  For some, it is to buy a home, a car, or a child’s college fund.  For others it is earning extra income to take their spouse and kids out more often.  This gives you incentive to push forward to achieve your goals.

  Once you realize your dream, never lose track of it.  Every time you are having a hard time getting motivated, picture yourself in your new home, or car! 

  Now, write down your goals, and set a reasonable time limit.  Start small and grow them larger as you reach them.  You don’t want to get discouraged by setting your goals too high in the beginning.  Some may want to start with a down payment on a car or home.

  When you reach each goal, reward yourself.  Take a day off, sleep in, go to dinner, whatever makes you happy!
