    One tip I found essential for my online business was to keep focus. It’s far too easy to be distracted by offers for shiny objects that drop into your Inbox. It’s far too easy to be pulled into social media, especially Facebook and end up wasting a lot of time on non-productive trivia.

    So when I sit down to do some work, I turn off the phone and turn off social media and close down Gmail so I can focus on getting the day’s tasks done.

    It’s surprising how quickly you can get things done without all the online noise that otherwise sucks up your time!

      That’s admirable of you, Gary. Only few people are able to deal with distraction successfully like you did, and that’s admirable. It actually surprised me to see you mentioned Gmail. But you’re right, Gmail oftentimes contribute to distraction, as there’s always an email about shiny objects.

      It actually takes a lot of self-control.

    I like that you start your list with involving the family. The disruption to family life that an at home business creates is real, most especially concerning phone calls. Because the business is right there all the time do you recommend setting business hours when you will answer the phone? Or should a growing business just bite the bullet and maximise the work time so you can make that start-up income?

      Good question.

      Although it is ideal to set business hours when people can call you, I think it would be better to just bite the bullet and maximize the work time like you said. The reason is, a growing business need sales and cash. Maybe when the business has grown significantly that’s the time when you have to dictate when clients or customers can call you.
