Tips for Part-Time Business Owners

Filed under: Business, Inspirational, Motivational, Sucessful, Uncategorized — lamarwalter @ 10:46 pm

1.)Be ready to give up personal time. You won’t have much time for TV, reading or hobbies you used to enjoy. Be sure the sacrifice is worth it, or both your job and your business will suffer.

2.) Focus on the task in front of you. When you’re at work, focus on work. Don’t let thoughts of your business distract you.

3.) Make the most of every minute. Use lunch hours or early morning to make phone calls. Use commuting time on the train to catch up on paperwork.

4.) Be honest. Only you can assess your situation, but in many cases it’s best to be upfront with your boss about your sideline business. As long as it doesn’t interfere with your job, many bosses won’t mind. You’ll also gain by being honest rather than making them feel you have something to hide

5.) Take advantage of time-zone differences and technology. If you do business with people in other states or countries, make time differences work to your advantage by calling early in the morning or after work. Use faxes and e-mail to communicate with clients at any time.
