One Minute Business Tip Work Ethic

One minute business tip for you today is work ethic. It seems so simple but sometimes it is the small stuff that puts you ahead.

I help people start and run their own small businesses and have found that if you have the ability to focus, put your nose to the grindstone and get things done, then you have what you need  start a small business.

A strong work ethic will help your small business start-up and will continue to help your business succeed.

One Minute Business Tip Strong Mentor

One minute business tip for you today is find a strong mentor. This person can help navigate the waters you haven’t been in before.

So many of us are solo entrepreneurs, running home based businesses or online businesses, where we are doing it on our own. Get with someone that is one step ahead of you, they know the path and will help guide you.

Anything that you have done in the past where you were learning something new, you had someone teach you, it’s no different in business. I love mentoring people and helping them start their own home based businesses. Find a strong mentor and be open to the knowledge they can share with you.

Productivity Tip

One quick productivity tip for you today!   For entrepreneurs like myself, especially those that work from home, get up and get dressed for work, even if you aren’t leaving the house.  One might think that since I work from home, I don’t have to worry about what I wear.  I have found, while working my home based business, that I am much more productive when I am dressed for my work day ahead.

This morning after taking my boys on a walk, I took a quick shower and put on a cute dress, not a big thing, but I know my mindset shifts to work mode when I feel confident in what I am wearing.  When you are dressed for work, your mindset is often different than if you were to stay in your sweats or yoga pants all day.

While working for Bret and Chalene Johnson at Powder Blue Productions, I really learned from my now mentors that you should dress for your mindset. Even though we were a workout based company, we were to dress nice in the office.

When you are dressed and feel confident, the rest of your day will follow. Think about how different clothes make you feel and how different you carry yourself depending on what you have on.  Or how your confidence level changes with different types of outfits?I have found that my work from home style definitely affects my productivity mindset.

Dress so that you feel confident and the work you do will exude the same confidence. Author, Personal Development Speaker and mentor for me (from afar), Brian Tracy, believes in the idea that if you dress for success your mindset will follow.
