Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #140

07 Jul 2015 Uncategorized

Working from home has certain advantages, like being able to go to work in your jammies. And — in theory — you get to plan your own day. More or less. But as Diva Dawn told us at Camp Clutter B Gone (taking place all month long), “Working from home is also fraught with distractions and indecision.

Don’t answer your phone, check your email, or go on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest. Instead, use this time for listing, paperwork or some other substantial task for your business.
