Setting Time Boundaries for Your Home Business

If you are a work-at-home mom, you can certainly attest to the fact that time is critical in coordinating your business and family life.

Setting time boundaries for your home business allows you to organize your schedule so that neither your business nor family suffers from lack of attention

Working at home can have its benefits as well as its drawbacks. Whether you have a family with small children to take care of or elderly parents, it takes planning and organization from the outset to ensure all boundaries are set to ensure an efficient and successful home business is achieved.

To begin with, it is necessary to clearly define the operational hours of your business. Taking into consideration the age of the children, the hours may have to be tweaked if your children attend pre-k or elementary school which requires you to take them and pick them up each day.

Using this scenario, your hours of operation may be from 9 to 2, depending of course on your children’s schedule. Conversely, if you have grown children or caring for elderly parents you may choose to run your home business a full 8 hours a day.

Setting aside time for lunch breaks and/or getting out of the house for at least an hour is important not only for your health, but it helps to clear the mind and offer a change of scenery. Sitting in front of the computer all day is not conducive to a good work ethic.

As a home business owner, you need to have a room in which you can work without the constant interruptions. Therefore, place a “do not disturb” sign on the door so that family members know not to interrupt your daily business affairs.

If you have any pets at home, keep them in another room in your home. Avoid answering the phone by utilizing an answering machine, and do not answer the door if someone comes to call. This is predicated on the fact that you have already advised your friends and family that you will not be available during the business’ hours of operation.

One of the problems we all face as home business owners is that we take on too much in the beginning and become overwhelmed. Learn to say no even though it may go against your work ethic. Eventually, you will be able to outsource work which will open up personal time, but at the outset the business needs your full and undivided attention.

Setting time boundaries for the business is one important aspect, but setting time boundaries for yourself is just as necessary. If you become overworked, you will not be able to manage the day-to-day problems that inevitably occur within your family circle.
