Your Business Shouldn’t Take the Holiday Season Off

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

 

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.
