)-- As a small business owner of a commercial grade inflatable rental company, you frequently spend time working from home. This work ranges from returning calls to bounce house customers and following up on leads, to spending time marketing your inflatable business. While convenient, there are also many challenges and distractions that go hand in hand with working from home.
When you are working from home on a regular basis, managing the day in and day out operations of your commercial grade inflatable business, to optimize your efficiency you will need to set aside an area of your home designated for work. This area does not have to take up a large space within your home, a desk, computer, printer and your business’ files are certainly sufficient for most bounce house businesses. Additionally, this work area can be a great tax write-off at the end of the year.
One of the biggest challenges of working from home is the distractions at your fingertips. From family disruptions to the comfort of the couch and television, it can be a challenge to buckle down and dedicate your entire focus to your bounce house business. It may be helpful to set up a schedule for working from home. Dedicate a set time each week or day where your focus is solely on your commercial grade inflatable business, and be sure other family members are aware and respectful of this.
Another key to success when working from home, or anywhere for that matter, is to make a list of what you want to achieve each week. Focus these tasks with both the long and short term goals of your commercial grade inflatable business in mind. Chiseling away at this list will give you a sense of accomplishment and motivation that is important to the success of your bounce house business.
There is a common misconception that when working from home that you simply stay in your pajamas all day. First and foremost, very few people working from home actually do this. In fact this can be detrimental to your progress and accomplishments for your bounce house business. Keep in mind the old adage “dress for success.” This certainly does not mean that you need to wear a suit to your home office. Simply choosing comfortable, yet presentable, attire can give you a feeling of motivation to start the day’s tasks.
As a commercial grade inflatable business owner working from home, it is important to remember to fit breaks into your busy schedule. It is easy to get caught up in your work and forget to take time out from the day. Consider leaving the office for lunch, heading outside, or even running errands for a short time. This will help to keep your mind fresh and ultimately make you more productive in your bounce house business.
While, there is a certain amount of luxury to working from home it brings with it a unique set of challenges. Your bounce house business can certainly be successful from the comforts of your own home, you simply need to know how to manage your time and motivate yourself to get the work done.
