Your Business Shouldn't Take the Holiday Season Off Washington DC

Being your own employer takes discipline, and requires that you make sound and professional decisions. You need to remind yourself that even though the holidays are here, you do have a business that still needs to run and be taken care of. Depending on your business, and whether you own that business or work for someone else, you need to make a plan that will carry you through the holiday season while still creating the time you want away from work.

Your Business Shouldn't Take the Holiday Season Off

Provided By: 

December 9th, 2009 admin Posted in Work at Home |

 

Over the years I have noticed that the holidays can be a difficult time for moms who work out of their homes to stay focused and stick to their regular work routine. While working out of your home does give you flexibility, you still do have a business to run and people counting on you to deliver your product or service. So, while it may be tempting to "ditch" work more than normal to run holiday errands, bake cookies, decorate and take more breaks than usual, I caution you to be careful to not go overboard. Plan accordingly, just as when you worked out of the home.  

When work needed to be done, you couldn’t decide to simply not show up for work or leave during the work day because you wanted to have fun, instead of being in the office. Granted, all people get vacation time and you need to, in essence, schedule your own vacation time from the business you do out of your home.

Being your own employer takes discipline, and requires that you make sound and professional decisions. You need to remind yourself that even though the holidays are here, you do have a business that still needs to run and be taken care of. Depending on your business, and whether you own that business or work for someone else, you need to make a plan that will carry you through the holiday season while still creating the time you want away from work. By playing hooky too much, you will fall behind in all you had hoped to accomplish, and be complaining about it when January hits, and even worse, not bring in as much money as you need each month. Remember, real businesses in the real world don’t stop when the holidays hit. They need to go on as they always do throughout the entire year.

This holiday season, be sure to make a plan, take some extra time off to enjoy family and festivities, but at the same time, making it a priority to continue with your work and business in a professional and responsible manner.
