When we worked at an outside job it always seemed so dreary. Maybe it is because you realize you are not free for the next 8-hours or so. Maybe it is because you don’t like the feeling of being chattel. Your time is not your own; and you are pretty much required to put up with lots of unpleasantness from co-workers, managers and customers.
This is not the case when you work at home and are your own boss. Hopefully, you were able to connect with a business that you enjoy and are interested in. You can work the hours that you want. You can split up the time you work into 2 or more segments in a day. You can work at night if you need to and you can take a day off when you want to.
However, it is critical that you do work on a regular basis to get things done that are necessary to run your business, or you will eventually run it into the ground.
So you might say having your own business you need to have discipline. You need to stay motivated and have faith. You need to work. Obviously doing something that is fun is much easier than doing something boring or tedious in a hostile environment. Maybe what that means to you is get it over with and spend the day outside, at the gym or whatever you like to do.
Maybe if you are really engaged in your business, it means to keep creating and refreshing what you do and how you do it. Make your business more efficient and more profitable by giving it some thought. There are millions of ideas you can come up with to do all that and when you are able to accomplish your goals you will have a great sense of gratification.
Obviously it would be easier to relax and have fun working at home if you are not stressed about money. That is why it is good if you have a way to support yourself in the first year. If you are super-serious about having your own business, start saving now. It may take a while but you should consider living expenses as well as the small costs of starting a business online.
