Working from home can be great … no boss breathing down your neck telling you what to do, you can take lunch when it suits you, and no travelling. But unless you’re organised and have a routine in place, your business may start to suffer.

Distractions, phone calls, kids, lack of concentration, and being disorganised can all contribute to a chaotic day.

I’ve listed some good habits for home-based businesses that will help keep you on the right track.

  1. Designate yourself a work space
    Make sure your work area is completely separate from your living area so that there are less distractions
  2. Have a set schedule
    If your day is organised into tasks you are much more likely to get things done
  3. Get up at the same time everyday
    This will improve your time-management skills
  4. Keep a calendar
    Check your calendar first thing in the morning and plan your day
  5. Keep a to-do list
    Keep this list updated so you know what needs to be done
  6. Set distinct office times
    Make sure you work at set times of the day
  7. Don’t spend ALL DAY home alone
    Spend some time outside – perhaps meeting up with colleagues or clients
