By Lakshmi Menon
After a careful thinking and spending hours and days together on the net, you have finally chosen
your work at home opportunity and you look forward for a fast income from your business. But to your dismay, you
are not able to find that much success, as you had imagined.
One of the main reasons could be that you were not contributing your time and concentration as you
had planned earlier. When you do a self assessment you will find that you had not taken your home business as
serious as you had thought.
Most often the reply to this question would be that you had too many distractions from your work
since it was just at home only. As you had no boss to report about your work, you took it at ease. You find time
for everything else at home, but not for your business. You thought now your online business would run on its
You are wrong. You should set up a proper time to make your home business a success.
I have found the following tips helpful to me.
1. Keep away from distractions. I choose a time where less distractions are expected and I have
informed my friends and relatives also accordingly. So they know I will be busy with my work on the computer and
many of them avoid calling me during that time unless it is urgent.
2. Before switching on my computer itself I will plan what I am going to do today for my business.
Only then I will look at other offers waiting for my attention in my mail box. After finishing my regular promotion
job, I will take up my other things. Otherwise my work will get neglected and I get distracted to other hype
3. I will switch off the television when I am working at home. Otherwise without my knowledge my
attention will be diverted to the TV program.
4. When I am doing something very serious which requires more attention such as making an online
transaction etc, I will either switch off the mobile or at least leave it in silent mode, so that I won't get
distracted if it happens to ring during that time.
Conclusion: If you take care of the distracting factors affecting your business, you will find that
you can make your work at home business work for you in a more successful way.
