4 Strategies You Can Use to Build Momentum for Home
Business Right Away

Be honest with yourself. Are you one of those people who
believe that you just don’t have the time to get your home
business up and running? You’re not alone. Many people I
talk to claim they have too much to do and not enough time
to do it. They wind up defeating themselves and their
business looses momentum and suffers.

Full time jobs, family obligations, maintaining health
and to many other distractions are the main reasons for
not building momentum for their business. You can wind
up feeling that your life is spent catering to every one
elses obligations.

However, I have some good news! You can find and maximize
time to build momentum for your home business. All you
need is to find time and commit to use that time for your
home business only. Try the following strategies to make
your home based business flourish.

Document Your Daily Routine

The first thing you will need to do find a quiet place
and write down your schedule. Document the start and end
time on events like getting ready for work, driving your
kids to school, your commute to your day job, gym time
and any other weekly commitments you have. Don’t forget to
include weekends and family time, this is most important.

After completing this exercise you should have a good
visual of what your work week looks like. You should see
openings in your week. Make your goal easy, try to find
two hours you can commit to spend on your business. You
should be able to re-prioritize some time.

Stay with the Schedule You Created and Re-Evaluate

The next thing you need to do is stick with your
schedule. This can be tough because you are creating a
new habit. Once you get the hang of your new routine, you
should always re-evaluate your schedule. You may be able
to find more time to spend on your home business.

Sticking with your schedule means you need to discipline
yourself to work. This means that you have to find a way
after work, after little league games, after dinner and
after putting the kids to bed.

Don’t Forget Your Family.

Spending time with my family is always a top priority for
me. When I had young children, I focused on my business
when my kids were in bed. I find that using the evening
hours is best for me to spend on my home business. It
seems to be the most quite part of the day.

If you have to use your family time to spend on your
business, make sure you communicate with your family so
they have an expectation of what you are doing. However,
I would recommend that you set a time limit so you can
spend that time you want with your family. This will
provide balance for you.

Embrace Distractions

As we all know life also throws us off schedule. Try your
best to embrace that fact instead of fighting it. If your
child stays up late, focus on helping your child quiet
down and go to sleep. Try not to focus on what you could
be doing. Don’t worry. The work will still be there when
you are ready.

If you have to stay late at your day job, then choose to
work late. Usually, you’ll find that it is better just to
focus on one thing at a time. You’ll be more efficient and
effective. Having a clear and guilt free mind while
working on your business is most productive.

To handle new ideas that can distract you while you are
working, keep an MP3 Recorder handy so if an idea comes
up you can record it or write down the idea in a
notebook. You can always prioritize those thoughts at a
later time. You will also find that you are using less
energy dealing with distractions instead of fighting
them.

So there is good news when it comes to finding time to
work on your own business. Don’t despair and don’t get
frustrated. Just remember that you have total control of
your time and you alone can change your habits to build
your businesses momentum.

Being a Sponsor Myself

When I first joined SFI back in 2002, I didn’t know
anything about it or how it works and had no help from my
Sponsor. It was confusing to me at first but I just kept
reading and applying the things that I did understand.
When I got my first check, that was all the fuel I needed.
I was like, WOW this really works!! So I just kept doing
what I was doing and added new things along the way.

Without the proper guidance, the person that joins
may be confused and give up. It’s a system so simple
that when you join, you will have everything you need
to start earning immediately. You can earn even as a
free member.

If you are seriously seeking a program that you can
make some extra income, then this is a great start.
It’s free to join and has an A+ rating with the BBB.
This is what got my attention.

Join my team and I’ll personally help you build a
second income with this top rated program.

http://www.craigsonlinetips.com/goto/sfi/

Being a Sponsor myself, I believe in helping my team.
I can only help the ones who help themselves. To get
my help, just be an active member.

SFI really does work. Since I’ve been a member, they have
delivered everything that they offered. The best thing
to me is that they are NOT a scam, you really can earn
with them. My checks have arrived on time every time.

Why not just invest in yourself and build a real,
reliable stable income.

Think of SFI like the job that you go to everyday but
with a small twist.

Let me explain!!

You show up to work everyday to earn a living. You clock
in for 8 or more hours using other people tools only for
them to earn much more than you and they tell you when to
come in, take a break/lunch and what time to go home.
Your income also has a cap on it.

Pay close attention to this, with SFI it’s pretty much the
same as the above statement but here’s the small twist that
I mentioned earlier. With SFI you can work as little as
30 minutes to an hour a day and you get paid to be an
active member. You have the tools to use and they are yours
to use with unlimited uses 24/7. This is what takes the cap
of your income. Also, you can show up (login), take a
lunch/break with SFI anytime you choose and how long you
want and there is never a rush.

Personally I look at it like this, when we were born, we
didn’t know how to walk or talk but we learned. Learning
this program really is no different.

NOTE: SFI works the same as any job that you work.

IF YOU DON’T SHOW UP (LOG IN) FOR WORK YOU DON’T GET PAID!!

I’m impressed with the service that I’m receiving.

Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing An Affiliate Program

Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing An Affiliate Program
Written by Craig Warren
http://www.craigsonlinetips.com/goto/sfi/

When people decide to join an affiliate program to make
extra money, or to have a full-time job, they often do
so with illusions and no idea of how the affiliate
program actually works. Read the following top 5 mistakes
people make when it comes to choosing an affiliate
program and avoid these mistakes at all costs. Then, you
will be able to be more effective and make more money for
your time, so it is definitely worthwhile to read these
warnings and avoid them.

Don’t Compete, Support

Too many affiliate programs compete against their
competitors which wastes money and puts affiliates out of
business. However, if you are part of an affiliate
program the more affiliates the better for getting more
information and more money. One of the worst things to do
is choose an affiliate program that believes in competing
against other affiliates. Instead, choose an affiliate
program that agrees with supporting and growing other
affiliates to have a larger network and access to more
affiliates.

Little Reward

Another mistake people frequently make when choosing
affiliate programs is choosing a program that offers
little reward for the individuals hard work. To many
affiliate programs pay too little and as a result
affiliates find it difficult to make the money they
should be making. Look for an affiliate program that
has a good pay rate for your work.

Old Statistics, If Any

You want an affiliate program that offers good, solid,
real-time statistics, not old statistics or ones that are
no longer valid. There are not many affiliate programs
out there that provide the kind of statistics an
affiliate manager needs, but do your best to find an
affiliate program that offers the most.

No Support

To often affiliates find themselves waiting days for an
answer to an e-mail and an important question for their
business. You want an affiliate program that guarantees
you support round the clock if possible or at least
within 24 hours. If not, keep looking for an affiliate
program that wants to help you help yourself.

Fresh Ideas, Creatives

Many affiliate programs provide few ideas or creatives to
their affiliates and so thousands of web pages end up
with the same advertising. However, affiliate programs
would have a better success rate if many different ads
were made available so affiliates could alternate ads and
place different ads on different sites, depending on the
products sold.

Commit these five mistakes to memory so you know exactly
what you are looking for in an affiliate program, as well
as what to avoid. You will be much more successful and
happier as well if you do not get caught in these traps!

5 Tips To Choosing The Right Affiliate Program

Affiliate programs can be a great way to make money
online. You don’t have to spend time developing your own
product, worry about taking orders, or take care of
customer service.

If you already have a high traffic website or run an
e-zine you can stand to earn a steady flow of commissions
every month without a lot of extra work on your part.

To help you get started promoting affiliate programs,
I’ve provided the following 5 tips to help you choose the
affiliate programs that are right for you.

1. Choose affiliate programs that match the content of
your site. If your site targets a niche market than
choose affiliate programs that offer products to that
niche market.

2. Choose affiliate programs that pay a high commission.
For example 30%-50% on your direct sales.

3. Join affiliate programs that pay two-tier commissions.
This enables you to not only earn commissions on your own
sales but also on the sales of people who you introduce
to your affiliate program.

4. Join affiliate programs that offer a line of products
so that you can earn commissions when your referrals come
back and purchase other services or products.

5. Join affiliate programs that offer their affiliates
great marketing support. Many affiliate programs offer
their affiliates pre-written ads to use or get ideas
from, sales letters, marketing courses and articles to
use in promoting their services.

Remember, the best affiliate programs will see their
affiliate program as a partnership with you and combine
high commissions with excellent support so that you can
start earning money promoting their products as quickly
as possible.

The Get Rich Quick Mentality

The Get Rich Quick Mentality
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.craigsonlinetips.com/

Building any kind of business takes time, money, energy
and focus. Obviously some businesses take more or less
of each ingredient. Internet businesses are no different
than a traditional brick and mortar business, except for
the fact that they can cost substantially less to get
started. That’s why they are so attractive to a lot of
people.

For some reason however, the internet is fill with get
rich quick schemes and scams and all though many are not
schemes or scams, they just don’t work. With that said,
there is a whole segment of internet entrepreneurs that
want to make as much money as they can as fast as they
can.

As if you haven’t noticed, the get rich quick mentality
is rampant on the net and it’s getting worse everyday.
There is a vicious cycle that just seems to perpetuate
itself and I’m not sure which came first, the hucksters
or the prospectors. In other words, the people selling
get rich quick or the people searching for it. It seems
as though there are opportunity seekers out there who
are asking to be scammed.

What has perpetuated this kind of thinking is a lack of
vision in the internet business person. It doesn’t matter
what kind of business you are involved in, you have to
take the time to do the necessary work to make your
business successful. Sure, lots of people are able to
make decent sums of money rather quickly on the net, but
these kinds of businesses won’t last. In a few months,
many of the people who are getting rich quick today,
will be on to something else because they were only able
to make money for a limited amount of time with their
latest deal.

Wouldn’t you rather have a business that you can build
on, that you can make grow and that will last for a long
time and produce income for years for you and your family
instead of having to rebuild your income every year? This
is the most important point I am going to make in this
article. You absolutely must take the time to build your
business correctly on the net or you will never make a
substantial amount of money for the log run.

The opportunities on the net are limitless and more and
more people are shopping online every year. However, you
can’t just throw up a few pages of meaningless content
and expect to get ranked at the search engines and start
making gobs of money, even though there is lots to be
made.

Anyone with a brick and mortar business will tell you
that they usually don’t make any money for the first 2 to
5 years in their business. So how does this time-table
translate for an internet business?

Some people think they are going to put up a web site or
blog and start making money in a month or a few weeks.
I’m sorry to tell you, that just isn’t going to happen.
Depending on the kind of business you are focusing on
expect to put in 6 months to 1 year of seriously hard
work before you see any substantial results in your
venture.

Also, you need to become a student of your business and
internet marketing in general to make sure your business
succeeds.

There are people who want to be in business for
themselves on the net but somewhere they get the idea
that all the information they need to get started should
be free. They are afraid to spend a dime to learn the
correct way to build a web business or they want someone
to do all the work for them by giving them unlimited free
advice.

You will have a profitable net business only if you
invest in it with your time, money for the necessary
tools, work and education. There are thousands of get
rich quick deals out there clogging up search engines
waiting to take people’s money. Do yourself and the rest
of us a favor, don’t add another one to the mix. Start a
real business on the net, instead of just trying to get
rich quick.

The Biggest Mistakes

The Biggest Mistakes
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.craigsonlinetips.com/

When you’re starting a home business, it’s all too easy
to make mistakes after all, you’ve never done this
before. Fortunately for you though, you can learn from
others errors, by making sure you don’t do any of these
things.

Thinking Skills You Don’t Have Aren’t Important.

So you have no idea how to keep records and accounts, or
you don’t know how to maintain a mailing list. You need
to learn these things! Too many home business owners just
do the things that they know how to do, and assume that
they can probably get by without everything else.

You need to realize that when you’re running a home
business, you’re going to need to do as much as you can
for yourself, especially when you’re starting out. This
means that you can’t get by if your business skills are
lacking. I always say that everyone who is thinking of
starting a business should take an inexpensive and quick
local business course, and I stand by it even if you
think you’ll be fine, it can’t hurt, can it?

Not Managing Your Time.

When you’re used to working nine to five, an easy trap
to fall into is not managing your time effectively. Your
home is full of distractions, and there won’t be anyone
there to tell you to get on with it. If you’re prone to
daydreaming or procrastinating then this can be
disastrous. Whole days can go by with only tiny amounts
of work getting done.

You need to be sure that you have a schedule and you
stick to it. Draw a clear line between work and non-work
time and don’t cross the line in either direction. Apart
from that, the word to remember is prioritize. Appreciate
that you won’t always be able to do everything but make
sure you get at least the important things done.

Making Clients Think You’re a Joke.

There are many home businesses where clients might need
to visit your home but make sure it’s fit for visiting!
You can’t lead them into a messy office, or be holding
your dog back from barking at them when you first meet.
Remember that professionalism is important, and it’s too
easy to end up looking silly if you don’t plan how you’re
going to make a good impression when you invite people to
your home.

If you can’t afford a business annex to your house,
then consider hiring someone to look after your dog or
children for a few hours while you have a business
meeting there. It might also be worth paying a cleaner to
give the place a quick once-over, if you haven’t had time
to clean up for a while.

Not Specializing

Too many home businesses, when asked who their target
market is, say well everyone, silly. Your target market
is never everyone — if it is, you will fail. You can’t
just choose an industry and advertise your new-found
profession to everyone, in the hope that someone will
work out that the fact you’re an electrician means maybe
they should ask you about re-wiring their house.

The key to success is this, think about what you can do,
and then market that to people who will want it.
Advertise in places where these people are. If your
business has no target market, then you have no business,
period.

Making Start-Up Costs Too High.

Finally, too many people over-estimate how much money
it’s going to take to start a home business. Do you
really buy all brand-new equipment? If you’re spending
thousands of dollars before you’ve made any sales at all,
you’re setting yourself up for a disappointment.

Start your business on a shoestring, work hard, and
expand gradually otherwise you’re setting yourself up
for a big fall. However much you might think you ought
to do things properly, you need to make sure that
you’re minimizing costs and maximizing profit every step
of the way, otherwise you’re failing yourself as a home
business owner. It’s when you start to get some bigger
clients and better cash-flow that you can start paying a
little extra to make your business life more comfortable.

Why Start a Home Business

Why Start a Home Business
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.fastcashfromhome.org

Working from home is a dream for many but actually going
ahead and starting a home business is very difficult. So
what makes so many people want to do it and why would
you ever try such a crazy thing? Here are some common
reasons and some things to consider.

You Can Build Your Great Idea

It suddenly hit you like a bolt of lightning: you’ve
thought of a great business idea. This is perhaps the
number one reason that people go into business from
home. They’ve come up with something great that they
really believe in, but can’t afford to rent any business
premises. It does depend on what the business is but
working from home is often ideal in these situations.

Remember though that even the best ideas take hard
work to become a reality. The kind of ideas that are
good for a home-based business are ones that can
become at least partly real quickly, and start bringing
in an income you shouldn’t sit at home for a year
working on something that’s making you nothing
whatsoever.

You Can Make Your Hobby a Job

Most people have something that they’re really
passionate about and would spend the rest of their
life doing if they could, just for the enjoyment of
it. Getting paid for doing what you love is obviously
appealing even if you only earn a living wage, it’d
be your idea of paradise.

Make sure though that you’d be able to take it if you
had to make a living from your passion. It’s the things
were closest to that hurt us the most think of how you
might feel if no-one buys what you’ve made, or if they
send it back and with a note saying what rubbish, I
demand a refund! Can you cope with your hobby
becoming commercial?

You’re Tired of Your Boss

It seems like everyone hates their boss. They try to
pretend like they’re your friend, but they’re not fooling
anyone, are they? You’re forced to work to pointless
deadlines and targets. Anytime you spot a better way
of doing something you’re told that its impractical or
worse, that its great but the stupid way of doing things
is already established and policy.

What you might not realize is that being your own boss
requires quite a lot of willpower. If there was no-one
to make you get up in the morning and do any work,
would you? Your home is supposed to be a place of
rest and entertainment and when its full of the
equipment and temptation to do anything but work,
working there can be hard.

You Want to Spend More Time with Your Family

You feel like all you do is go to work, come home and
then sit around, to tired to do anything fun with your
family. If you have children, they seem to be growing
up so fast and you’re missing it all because you
have to go out and work.

Of course, the flip side here is that you might just end
up spending too much time with your family, while
you’re trying to work. When everyone knows you’ll be in
the house all day, they’ll probably ask you to do all
sorts of unimportant things, just because you’re available.
It’s hard to say no and before you know it, you’re doing the
job of a full-time housewife instead of what you set out
to do.

You Don’t Like Wasting Time and Money Commuting

After all, once you get to the office, what is there
anyway? Offices are dreary environments and terrible to
work in traveling for hours there and back and spending
a significant proportion of your wages to do it seems
completely pointless (especially if you live in the
middle of nowhere). If you could work from home,
think of the time you’d save and time is money, isn’t
it?

Don’t be surprised, however if you start to feel trapped
in your home, since you never leave it. Can you find
good ways to get away from it all?

But Don’t Be Put Off

While the list of warnings for working at home might look
long, a list of warnings about working in an office would
surely be longer. As long as you stay on your guard, you
can get all the benefits of working from home without
falling into any of the traps.

Make Money With Your Website

Make Money With Your Website
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.craigsonlinetips.com/

Simple & sure ways to make money with your website

I think most legitimate work from home/online money-making
method is designing your own website and then turn it to a
host of money-making activities. Web sites is the ultimate
money-making machine, it earns even when you are sleeping.
Today, the Web is an intensely commercial medium, offering
plenty of ways to make money. So your best strategy is to
earn as much money as possible.

I have enlisted simple & sure ways to earn cash with your
website.

Advertising On Your Website

The best and most proven method of making a profit out of
your website is using advertising. Internet advertising is
on an ascending trend, which shows plenty of potential for
the near and distant future.

Contextual ads

The popular search engine – Google has introduced a dramatic
new contextual advertising service called AdSense which allows
virtually any website owner to make money without having to do
to much. AdSense is a program in which you get paid for
targeting your readers to another websites product or service.
Google AdSense simply requires the host site to paste in a few
lines of HTML code on their pages where they want those ads to
appear. This code creates the ads that you see and when
someone clicks on one of these ads they go to the advertiser’s
site. The advertiser is then charged for the click by Google
and Google shares the money with you.

Sign up for Google Adsense and place Google ads on your
site. Google will display the most appropriate ads
according to your content and you will get paid for every
click on an ad. People are making thousands a month with
this.

In-Text Ads

When you mouse over one of these doubly underlined
sponsored links you will be presented with a Tool Tip
describing an advertiser’s product or service. If someone
click on the keyword and it will act like an ordinary link
taking visitor to a page belonging to the advertising company.
For every click on a highlighted keyword, you will receive a
small payment.

In-Text Advertising solution lets you monetize your
content in real time, enabling an incremental increase
in ad revenue by providing a new source of untapped ad
inventory that does not compete with the other ad
programs running on the site. Thereby providing you
with a new revenue stream from the content within your
site. Intellitxt and ContextWeb provides in-text ads
to websites.

Display Affiliate Program’s Links and Banners

Another method of monetizing your traffic by putting
links/banners of affiliate programs on your website.
Concept is really quite simple. Every thing is based
on paid referral system. Visitors come to your website,
you introduced them to product or service from a third
party vendor through a banner or text link and you get
paid a commission by merchant in various ways. You
can choose affiliate networks where different advertisers
offer their banners codes and links that will display
their banners on your site along with tracking of your
sales and leads.

Sell Affiliate Products

Another profitable way to earn money is to sell affiliate
products. You simply direct traffic to their website and
earn commissions when people buy products.

A good way to start with affiliate products is to sign up
with ClickBank. There are well over 10,000 different Digital
info products. Write up some reviews and recommendations and
send traffic to the ClickBank merchant, and if the product sells,
you get commissions sometimes as high as 75%. This type of
website is very simple to set up, however, it requires a large
amount of visitor traffic to earn significant money. It’s easy
to complement an existing website with affiliate links for
offering related products to your visitors and at the same time
earning money.

Make money selling other company’s products through affiliate
programs. They’ll give you a link to track your sales. Amazon.com
is great place to get HTML codes for various products to promote
and earn commission. Thousands of people are making a full-time
income just by driving traffic from their site to merchant sites,
never touching or shipping a product.

Charge a fee to access a section of your site

Provide free access to main sections of your website, but you can
charge a fee for an access to members lounge where more lucrative
information is often available. If your content is unique and valuable,
you can make money charging for it online. People will pay for access,
if it’s useful to them. Your members lounge could be a forum,
downloadable software, eBooks, listings, etc.

Sell your own services to your target audience. Like if you have
a web site on making money online and you are a web designer, you
can make an offer to design a website to your visitor so that they
can make money from it. You want to be able to take credit
cards (at least with PayPal if not otherwise) on your site and
deliver your product to your customers as fast as possible.

There are many more methods to make money, but above enlisted
methods can generate a substantial amount of money for beginners
and let us leave rest for expert guys.

Lastly, when your website is up and working, invest 75% of your time
in promoting it. Remember most important factor is the amount of traffic
on your website.

Working From Home Is A Reality

Working From Home Is A Reality
Copyright © Craig Warren
http://www.craigsonlinetips.com/

Have you considered working from home? It really has major
advantages:

You don’t need to buy expensive work clothes. They are
uncomfortable and nothing at all like wearing a warm robe
and slippers! You don’t need to pay for gas to get to work
every day. Depending on where you live, you don’t have to
scrape your windshield in the freezing cold. You don’t have
to put up with tons of daily traffic. You don’t have to pay
for a sitter for your kids, pets, etc. You can take a break
and work out or take a walk without punching a time clock.
You wont have a nosy boss breathing down your neck!

Sounding good so far?

Isn’t working from home really what you would like to do,
or is it just a dream that might not ever happen? No, it
isn’t just a dream! For example, think about celebrities
or athletes that grew up very poor, and then turned their
lives around. Do you think they ever had doubts? Sure they
did, but they kept on working toward what they wanted and
after much dedication and hard work, they all achieved
their dreams.

First of all, in order to get an online business going you
will need to find your niche. Have you considered what you
would enjoy doing? Take a subject or product that you have
some knowledge and/or interest in. You wouldn’t want to be
selling pet supplies when you can’t stand animals and have
no knowledge of their care. Or your hobby is daily target
practice at the neighbors cat! It really is difficult to
sell something you know nothing about or don’t care about.

I remember sitting in a job interview where I would be a
sales rep for a major cigarette company. Things were
going great, the income they promised was very appealing,
the signal I was getting was very positive. Then they
asked me when I was able to start the job. All of a sudden
it hit me, I cant do this! All of these dont’s came into my
head. I don’t smoke and I don’t want to sell something
that I don’t agree with. So I politely told them that I had
changed my mind and I couldn’t accept the position. I
left the interview and actually felt great relief instead
of regret, I knew it was the right thing to do! I wouldn’t
have been a very effective sales person for them
anyway.

Once you have figured out your niche, you may want to get
a website. If you don’t know HTML, there are websites like
the one in the resource box of this article that will allow
you to manage your own website without HTML knowledge,
as well as numerous others. Once you form your website,
start marketing it each day. Try to get noticed in chat
rooms, forums, and article sites. Be sure the link to your
website is always included in the signature file or in your
article.

Very important! Don’t give up too soon if things don’t start
moving along as fast as you might want them to. A want it
now attitude has wasted a lot of my efforts simply because
I just didn’t give my business enough time to develop. When
I look at the past, just as I was on the brink of really
making something successful, I got impatient and gave up
and tried something else! If you keep working on your
business, in due time it will flourish.

With brick and mortar businesses, supposedly you are
doing well if you break even after the first year! I think
that old analogy is outdated for online businesses though.
If you allow time each day to work on marketing and stay
focused on your goals, you will be successful with working
at home, and maybe sooner than you think. You wont get rich
quick immediately, but you will be able to earn a substantial
income over time depending on how much effort you put into it.
Be patient and work hard, you will get results!

Working From Home Plan Ahead For When Disaster or
Tragedy Occurs

Disasters or family tragedies can strike families in many
forms of Mother Nature, sickness and even computer
problems can cause major difficulties for your business.
Do you have a plan of action on how you will handle your
home-based business if disaster were to strike? If not,
you absolutely need to. Having a plan ensures that you
can not only keep your business running, but decrease
stress because you have already prepared for the
unexpected.

Below are four tips to help you handle the unexpected.

1. Work around the events Your customers will understand
as long as you communicate with them. Be honest that
things may take a little longer than usual, but keep your
customers updated as often as possible. Communication
is the key. Most people will understand the delay as long
as they are aware of it. If you get to the point where you
can’t work or finish a project, but sure to be clear and
honest about the situation and try to make an
arrangement that will be acceptable. Also, let them know
as soon as possible so they can prepare. Don’t wait until
the last-minute to advise them of a potential problem.

If you’re struggling because of a child being sick, try to
work when the child is sleeping and don’t stress yourself
out to work at other times. Make a schedule of what needs
to be done, so that you can accomplish as much as
possible during these times.

2. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, we tend to feel that we
should be able to handle everything that is thrown at us.
Unfortunately, this just isn’t always the case. There are
times when we need to allow ourselves to ask for help.
When a tragedy occurs and you are simply overwhelmed,
find someone who you trust and ask them for help. Many
times, just having someone reply to customers on your
behalf can take the pressure off your shoulders.

Allowing someone to help you when necessary can also be
uplifting to them as they feel they can be a part of helping
in a difficult situation. So don’t shy away from letting others
know. We all benefit when we work together and help one
another.

3. Prepare for the worst Because we never know what the future
holds, it is always better to be prepared. As the old saying goes,
Better safe than sorry.

One of the best resources to help you prepare is the Home Office
Recovery Plan: Disaster Preparedness for Your Home Office by
authors Diana Ennen and Patty Gale. This e-book covers all the
bases of getting a Disaster Recovery Plan in place now so that if
disaster strikes your home business or an emergency arises, you
are able to get your business back up and running quickly and
smoothly.

4. Get a Plan – There are times when life becomes overwhelming
and you simply aren’t able to accomplish everything on your own.
It’s for these times that you need to have some type of log of
what you do and what needs to be done. Keep a spreadsheet of
tasks that’s done, how often they are done and mark them
completed as you are able. Keep a list of passwords in a safe,
secure place. Make sure that your family (or whoever may be
helping you during this time) is able to carry on even in the
event that you are away from home.

If possible, train someone who you trust to do the things that
you do each day (at least the key things), so that when the
unexpected arises you wont be caught off-guard.

Tragedy comes in many shapes and forms, but if you are prepared
much of the unnecessary stress can be avoided. When tragedy
strikes, you want to be focused on the important things in life,
your family and you. By advance planning you are able to do so.
