Your Home Office- Your First Steps to a Successful Home Business

PowerPoint Presentation:

Starting a business from home is becoming a very common and popular venture for many. It offers the flexibility and cost savings of having the office in the home, and the comfort that some need in order to be more productive. There are lots of things to consider when setting up your home office. Here are some very basic first steps to ensuring your home office is set up to help you thrive with your home based venture.

PowerPoint Presentation:

1. Make sure you have the basic equipment to operate normally as a business. Some basic things to consider are, a good working desk phone with service that is clear, professional, and set up possibly to take many lines of incoming calls at one time depending on the nature of your business. A cellular phone is not always a good option because of spotty service, unclear call quality, and the inability to make conference calls or receive more than one call at one time and park those calls. Some higher-quality phones are compatible with services like Go To Meeting, but again, if service is spotty, this technology may not always be of benefit to you.

Make sure you also have a computer that can run the programs you need, maybe even multiple programs at once. Have a proper drafting table if you need one. A large, basic, sturdy desk with drawers for organizing supplies is also essential, and a chair that you feel comfortable in that you won’t fall asleep in is also necessary.

2. Work in a space that’s bright and full of light if you can. Studies have shown that people who work in bright , well lit areas with natural light are far more productive than people who work in dark or enclosed spaces.

3 . Your office space needs to be dedicated to just that- your office. And nothing else. Never assume you can successfully run a business long term in the corner of a nursery or on the side area of a living room. If you have a separate room all together, this is even better.

4. If you have a family, arrange to separate your family from your business. It’s extremely difficult to get a lot done with small children in the background and consistently needing things. And, if you can barely make personal phone calls without your children taking over, think about what this might do to your business. If you can wait until your children are old enough to be at school, run your home business during this time, or wait until your children are old enough to be in school to take on the effort of running a successful home business. Or of course, consider day care as part of your business operating costs.

PowerPoint Presentation:

5. Finally, be prepared to treat your home business as you would your out of home business. There are many home business owners that swear by still getting dressed as normal in the morning, doing hair and makeup, and keeping strict hours in the office, even if they run operations out of their homes. Business and home life are two separate things, and keeping them separate will help you.
