Spend More Time With Friends

You probably caught up with a bunch of friends over the holidays. Always a good time and a reminder of how important those people are to your lives. Don’t wait until next Christmas to get together. Make it a point to go out throughout the year. Hold a mini reunion if you want. Make it a monthly gathering. This is the social network that matters the most.

Read More

When was the last time you went to a library? Great thing about a library is that you can check out books, give them a quick read and if the story doesn’t grab you, then you can take it back. Cost to you: Zero. The library also has DVDS and CDs for your viewing and listening pleasure. Try to devote at least 30 minutes to reading each day. Perfect before drifting off to sleep.

Drink More Water

We most often reach for a glass of water when we are thirsty but by then you’re already dehydrated. The goal would be to keep drinking throughout the day to avoid that thirst. You’ll be amazed at what some water can do for your health.

Get Organized

Organizing your home can go a long way towards improving your mornings. Think of the time you’ll save when you find everything you need without going on a hunt. Even a simple key bowl by the door can work wonders for time management. As you organize every room in your house (that’s the goal!) you might discover there are a lot of things you can get rid of. Big things that won’t fit in the trash. That’s when it’s time to call in Junk King Columbus. These are the junk removal pros who can make short work of clearing out all your unwanted rubbish.

How To Jump Start A Home Business

In some ways, coming up with an idea for your home based business is the easy part. It’s putting all the “moving parts” together to make it work that is a challenge. A good approach would be to set up all the elements that you need before you quit your current day job. Then when you’re confident that you’re ready to devote full time to your endeavor, you can turn in your notice. First, consider these elements to help jump start your home business.

Mail Drop

Even though you’ll be working out of your home, you don’t want to automatically make your home address your address. A better move would be to rent a mailbox either from the post office or a shipping service. That way all your business mailings can go to one place outside of your actual home.

Set Work Parameters

Working at home means you’ll never have to deal with a traffic jam again! But that doesn’t mean you can slack off. You should set hours as you would at an outside job that you’ll dedicate to your home business. Of course, without an extra commute time, you can still get a lot done on the personal side before work begins.

Setting your hours also means setting ground rules for the rest of your family. They might be tempted to roam in and out of your office but you have to let them know that when you’re working, you’re working. Perhaps setting up an open door policy might work. If the door is open, then they can come in.

Dedicate A Work Space

Speaking of your office, you need to set up a dedicated space in your home where you can focus on your business. Working at the kitchen counter probably won’t get the job done. If you need to clear out clutter to make room for your office, then consider hiring Junk King Columbus. They can be your first official business expense!
