Running a business from home is a tricky thing because, on one hand, you have decided to work from home for the flexibility; while on the other hand, everyone (including you, sometimes) seems to think working from home means a vacation with a computer. Taking advantage of the flexibility of working at home does not mean that you must answer to everyone’s beck and call, or be distracted by each little thing. This is easy to say, but hard to do when you are in the moment. At the moment, if the phone rings and you must choose between finishing a business-related email or answering the phone, the phone may seem more pressing. In order to increase your productivity, it is important to run your business like a business, and not like a hobby that you do after rolling out of bed.
First of all, do away with wearing pajamas to work. Whoever said that what you wear doesn’t matter is a lie. What you wear reflects the way you are feeling, to a large extent. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should wear a suit around your house – unless, of course, your clients are coming to your home office for appointments. It just means that, by wearing your pajamas and sweat pants all the time you will not feel as though you are really in the mood to put forward your most productive self. Shower in the morning, put on some clothes that do not have jumping sheep on them, and sit down at your desk feeling like a professional.
Next, think about the time you do your work as a schedule that you need to plan out. If you find that you are planning your work around doing everyone else’s dirty work, then you are not dedicating yourself to your job. Your schedule should include the time you get up, when you will start working, and when you will take your breaks. Make sure that the time scheduled for work is fairly uninterrupted. This may mean investing in a second phone line, and moving your home office away from the television or other parts of the house where you may be distracted.
Make sure that the people you are committed to understand that you are on a schedule. If someone calls to ask you out to a leisurely lunch, think first about whether or not you would be able to do this if you were working a regular job. Scheduling leisure time on schedule days off means that you are putting time and effort into your work, and this will be reflected in your income.

What is a 2Khero? Or, better, what makes a hero? We all know about the Hollywood heroes … they rush into trouble to save those they love. They risk their lives for others and sometimes lose their own.
Is self-sacrifice in the face of mortal danger our guide? If so, there are hundreds of thousands of heroes in our military. In fact, just being a soldier, Marine, sailor or in the Air Force would make one a hero. I should add the Coast Guard as well. Maybe that’s the way it should be.

You’d think a Veteran would have it easy coming home from fighting for the USA in foreign lands. We see people standing and applauding when they come off airplanes and home to their loved ones… We see people offering them seats on planes, buses, trains and think, “Yea, they are being well taken care of.”
Yet, a Veteran has a tough time finding work. Yup, we see businesses saying they hire Vets, but the hard truth is that many Vets are unemployed because they just don’t fit into the traditional scenario.
Imagine being a man of 22 who has just come back from a Tour of Duty in charge of $20 million dollar equipment and a team of 10 men, leading them into a battle and surviving with only 3 of his team. Imagine what he is thinking… Imagine trying to get a job and not being qualified to be a manager of a fast food restaurant. How would you feel?
Sometimes as business owners we don’t understand just what the Hire A Vet really means in today’s world. And sometimes we are just plain scared to hire a vet!
2KonnecKares saw this problem and came up with a solution that helps Veterans and Businessmen alike. Let the Veteran earn an income where he is safe and comfortable. Learning to be back in the USA where he is safe and secure from terrorists and the threat of life or death situations and still be able to work in a safe and secure place is far better than being without a job and feeling useless and unwanted. I get that we are not 100% safe in the USA, but it sure beats being in Afghanistan or Iraq right now… and being able to work and taking care of his family is far better to his mental and emotional security too.
You can sponsor an Unemployed Veteran by donating $250 at www.PayPal.com/Send use this email address… donate@2KonnectKares.org to send a donation. The $250 will scholarship a HERO for 4 months to help him/her start a Home Based Business and make it profitable from the first month. The Veteran and use the scholarship to grow their business so they earn enough to pay bills and put food on the table.
Please help… donate right now… before you forget… Thanks!
