A Couple of Things


I am sorry.  There is a technical problem with my newsletter subscription.  If you subscribed and did not receive my newsletter please be patient.  I am working on it.   

Why I do not recommend working in your pajamasIn a pinch it is fine to work in your pajamas.  However, it is not a good idea to make a habit of it.  You will not be able to take your work nor yourself seriously if you are in your pajamas.  It is best to approach your work at home business in a professional manner.  That means wearing comfortable but appropriate attire.  You will get more done and think more clearly if you are properly dressed.  When you are in pajamas you are in a pajama state of mind.  You need to be in work state of mind.  Dressing in comfortable but work type clothes will help you do this.  Try it both ways and see what happens.  Let me know. 

EducationYou should schedule part of your work time towards education.  Education can be a review of your business practices.  You may want to see what is working and what is not.  If something is getting results leave it alone for now.  If something is not getting results this is where you need review and education.  When you review something you need to determine if it is worthwhile to work on or if it is better to scrap it. If it is worthwhile working on then this is where your education comes in.  It is up to you to determine what type of education is needed.  This may mean a trip to the library or bookstore, cruising the internet, consulting with a professional, brainstorming or getting a second opinion from a non professional.   

Since your time is valuable you may want to research books online and then check out your library catalogue online.  Before you head out to the library or bookstore make sure the book you need is there.  Cruise the internet with some caution.  There is valuable information on the internet but there can also be questionable information.  Consulting with a professional can be wonderful.  However, you need to find the right professional and consider the cost.  Brainstorming is free and is something you can do any time.  Getting a second opinion can help you find a solution.  When you get a non professional second opinion it can help you get unstuck in problem solving.   

Whatever option you choose remember to formulate a plan to follow and a time line to see if your new solution is working.
