My TOP 10 Favourite Things About Running My Own Online Business
You become your own BOSS Lady! Who doesn’t want to be in charge of themselves, their destiny and their business. It takes dedication; setting to do lists and sticking to them, setting boundaries.
Work the hours you want. I find it best to work at the time of the day you are most productive and ‘awake and rested’
Work in your PJs sometimes. Whilst I don’t recommend this all the time, it is a guilty pleasure of mine occasionally to stay in my PJs all day. It is good to start your day by getting dressed as if you are going out to work for the day, it somehow puts you into work mode.
You get to live the life you want.
You can cook cupcakes in the middle of the day. I don’t actually cook cupcakes in the middle of the day, every day, however i do get to do random things that I WANT to do. It might be watching a missed episode of my favourite show – Revenge, it might be to give myself a pedicure, or to sit out in the sun and read a few pages of my favourite book. Whatever it might be, it is so important to do something for ‘just you’ occasionally.
You can have a nap in the middle of the day. Whilst I have to admit that I have only done this a handful of times in the 10 years I have been working from home, I love the fact that I COULD do it if I wanted. As a mum of five young children the pleasure of a daily nap is now somewhat a dream, my goal this year is to set aside time to do just that. I plan to join the likes of companies like APPLE, Google that give their staff dedicate time for a siesta.
You can be there for your kids.
I can work wherever I want to.
VERY IMPORTANT! Remember to take care of yourself!!
