So you are going to work for yourself? You are kidding of course

So you are going to work for yourself.  Are you going to work out of your home

or are you going to rent space somewhere?

Well let’s take any successful business, what is one of the most important things they

do?

They are consistent, they set up business hours and they stick to them no matter what happens.

You don’t have to have a 40 hour week you can have a 20 hour week, but be

consistent and post your hours and make sure that short of an emergency you are where you

say you will be.

Let’s say you do what we are doing in our new business.  We are going to be in our retail

space from 11 to 4 Wednesday through Saturday to start.  We would like to be there more, but

for the time being we both have other commitments and this is the way it has to be.

Let’s saay someone comes to our business on Monday and the door is locked, well it is clearly

marked that our hours are as posted and it is on all our printed and social materials.

The one thing that I have found is that many of us are not consistent and that is unacceptable.

People will forgive you for not being there if they know what your business hours but there

is nothing more irritating then going to a business and the door is locked and there is no one

there.

Do you realize that some people have a time frame for retirement, Let’s say you have seven

years, well you are more likely to take ten if you are not consistent and committed and more

then likely to never reach your goal.

If you work on a committed schedule you will fulfill your commitment and your business will

grow.

You do realize that you may not always be busy when you are there but there are tons of

things you can be doing, like working on your social media, making business calls to keep in

touch, start a blog for your business or just putter around your space and fix it up to portray

your business and personality.

STOP IN AND VISIT OUR UPSTAIRS ON BEACON.  WE’LL BE THERE FROM 11-4 PM WED

THROUGH SAT OR BOOK AND APPOINTMENT cbytheseaa@shaw.ca
