Expanding Your Home Business on a Budget:
Now that you have started and established your home based business, you may desire to expand and take your business to higher level. Those who try to expand any business often run into problems with infrastructure, cash flow, and personnel. Though expanding your home business can be difficult, it is possible to expand a business with a minimum amount of problems, so long as care is taken to smooth out the rough spots.
• Upgrade your website and hire some help.
• Sell your business system to others and partner with other small business people.
• Get a secured loan to raise capital and expand into new markets.
• Make extensive use of online advertisements and marketing; and avoid common expansion pitfalls.
If you run headlong into expanding your business without proper planning, you could lose thousands of dollars or even run your home based business into the ground. Carefully plan and execute each phase of your expansion plan to gain new customers while keeping your existing customers happy.
Distinguishing Home Life from Business Life:
It can be disconcerting trying to separate your personal life from your professional life, especially if the boundaries are set within your own home.
• Make border line of priorities between your family or your business and come up with ways that the two do not coincide.
• Use an isolated room to work and separate yourself from your family, constant interaction causes loss of focus.
• Keep a neat and tidy area and restrict your children from touching your work materials.
• If you must, time and regulate the amount of time you spend “in office.”
It’s understandably difficult to split away from your family, but at the same time it serves no benefit to you to have two conflicting areas of your life converging at one point.
