Boss yourself around! Staying in “interrupt mode” is a sure way to hold your business back from growth. You don’t have a boss who is watching you all day — you ARE the boss — so it’s time to get bossy with yourself. Interruptions such as phone calls from friends or family members can erode your time and money. Set aside time each day as “quiet lockdown”, when you don’t take calls or emails from friends or family. Just business. It will help your business grow like magic. Your friends and family members should be alerted to your “lockdown” times; that way they won’t think you are being rude. Try it. It works!
