Do you work from home? Increase your productivity with these tips

When starting a business, an entrepreneur may not always have an office to conduct operations, since this would mean paying monthly rent, plus all the services like water, electricity and telephone, among others.

One option to solve this problem is to work from home; however, doing so implies certain responsibilities and rules to establish from the outset, to maximise time and not fall into the routine.

For starters, someone who works from home should enjoy what they do, so it is important to fully believe in the project or task in which they are involved.
Personal image is another aspect that should not be neglected, since you must constantly remember that even spending a lot of time at home means you can`t spend all day in panamas. If so, then this situation will eventually be counterproductive to your motivation.

Establish work schedules and respect others around you, as if this is not done, you`ll gradually lose the personal life and everything becomes work.
Choose an area to work that is away from distractions like television. This will be helpful to avoid pausing while working, so it’s easier to concentrate on customers or suppliers.

Talking about your business some of the time with your family and friends can be a good option to vent your problems; however, if you want solutions, it`s better to surround yourself with entrepreneurs or a coach you occasionally can contact about business.

If you have people working with you, the best way to avoid problems in the future is to establish rules from the start, because if not, it will invade the space of your family, which in the long term will be annoying for everyone.

If you are looking to increase your client base a virtual office is often an affordable option for a homeworker. A virtual office can help improve your companies image through the use of a mail forwarding address and a telephone answering service. A mail forwarding service allows you to obtain a prestigious address in a prominent area for the fraction of a real office address. Your clients are given the impression the office address is real and you are located from this premises. A telephone answering service which involves a virtual PA taking you calls can help increase productivity especially if taking calls can distract you from your main work.

Finally, organise your time developing methods and organise processes to help you avoid deliveries outside of your work time and make your work more efficient.
