When you have your own home business, you feel great as you are your own BOSS. You have full control of all aspects of your business. Although that is good, the truth is since you are the boss, there lies a huge responsibility of making your own business work. Running a business is like a roller coaster ride; you have good and bad days. That is quite normal, but what is not normal is when you reach a slump. So, how do you avoid business slump? Read on.
Reason Why Your Home Business is in a Slump
The challenge with running a home business is that there are too many distractions that derail your schedules and planned activities. Think of family situations, whether emergency or not, or how about attending to your home or solving family problems? These are normal occurrences even if you are working in a company. However, the attention that you give to these needs can become more glaring because you are the boss. Do you think you can be master of both; running a home and a home business? Well, my answer is YES because I strive daily.
How to Become Consistent
Yes, consistency is the KEY and here are 5 rules for you to consider on matters involving your home business.
Consistency in being Consistent. Throughout my career path, I’ve strived to stay consistent about consistency. Even the best-composed business plans will fail without a dedication to consistency. Don’t be a superhero and plan your activities realistically. Set doable schedules so that you do not get burned out thinking how you can manage scheduled activities.
Consistency allows for measurement. Ask yourself this question “How do I measure effectiveness if what I am measuring isn’t performed consistently? As home business owners, we need to have the same routine every day. For example: If you are an internet marketer, you know that blogging will be one of those activities. Being consistent in the same activities every day, you can measure what is working or not. TIP: Google Analytics by Yoast plugin for WordPress allows me to track my blog easily and always stays up to date with the newest features in Google Analytics.
Consistency creates accountability. Your business message that you convey is one to be accounted for by the public. Consistency provides customers with the assurance that they can hold your business accountable. Your WORD is powerful so mean what you say.
Consistency makes you relevant. To be successful with your home business means being consistent on a daily basis, thus will increase your relevancy. Organically your business will become more believable and trustworthy to the general public.
When your business becomes relevant it will naturally grow.
Consistency maintains your message. In many cases, you are in a slump because you are no longer motivated or believe in your message. In order for your business to grow, the message you send out should remain consistent. TIP: Keep your message simple and distinct!
