Make exclusive time for your business! Let your neighbors, friends and family know that between 9am-5pm, you are not available for calls or to answer personal email. You are working. In addition, take a regularly scheduled lunch break for an hour. I agree that a great part of having your own business is the flexibility factor, so go with the flow on that one; I’ve been known to attend a movie or go to lunch with a friend midday, but I usually schedule my workdays around making a profit. Just remember that you need to be in your “business zone” most days in order to grow your business.
