How to make your admin days at home effective

Much of the time of your TruGreen day will be spent outdoors treating lawns, but you will need admin days to catch up on the business and marketing side of things. But how do you make this time effective when you do it from home?

Here are 5 tips on how to run a business from home, effectively!

  1. Separate work and pleasure 
    Make sure the office/work space is totally separate from where you spend your down-time. This will prevent you from being tempted to work when you shouldn’t and relax when you should be working!
  2. Create storage
    Running a business from home will require you to have storage and when looking after data, it needs to be kept secure. Lockable filing cabinets, safes and other organisational furniture will be required
  3. Dress for the job 
    Wear clothing fit for the job, not your ‘comfies’ but something that portrays business. It will give you a better mindset to work and then when you’re done, you can switch back in to your ‘comfies’
  4. Fresh air
    Take regular breaks and where possible, get some fresh air. It helps refocus the mind and awaken you if you’re feeling a little tired
  5. Have the right kit 
    If you’re lucky enough to operate your business from home, you need to ensure that you have everything you need, to do it effectively. Computer, printer, storage and stationery to name a few

Above all else, you do need to be committed and motivated to work from home. Particularly when it comes to the distractions that you expect within a home.
