Walk Away From Your Desk

Walk Away From Your Desk De-stress in Nature

Sometimes I find myself in front of my computer screens, tablets for long periods at a time.

Do you find yourself compelled to stay in that computer chair to finish one more thing?

For me it was online courses that absolutely captivated my attention and of course, wanted to ace and complete each step “yesterday”.

The problem with that is my focus was entirely on the new work, not paying attention to my one need to move, to stay engaged with my family as I really wanted.

Take a Break  Outside

or even walk through your house. Do something that takes your attention and body away from the computer to pay attention to someone or something else.

You’ll find that you are much more productive, coming back to your work after this kind of a mental recess.

You can create a system around this work pattern by making a choice to work for a certain length of time…like 30 minutes. Then get up and create a change in scenery and focus.  You can use a simple kitchen timer or your smart phone alarm or anything!

The other benefit, it keeping balance intact with relationships with the important people in your life.  There’s no point achieving big things online or anywhere, if they are not celebrated by the people you care about.

Let me know in comments below what works for you in keeping physical, mental and relationship balance while working online. 🙂

Tax credits: Are You Treating Your Business like a Business?

Are You Using the Tax Credits You’re Entitled Too?

Are You Treating Your Business like a Business?As a business owner working part time to build your home business, are you taking the steps to establish your business as more than a hobby?
Even though you may still be working a full or part time job, the IRS or CRA  in Canada views your home business as a serious enterprise and so should you. 
One of the many reasons home businesses are started is to benefit from the tax credits.  Over the 17 years of our home business, we have enjoyed thousands of dollars of savings in tax credits. 
I am not an accountant or tax expert and I would refer you to your state or provincial tax experts to clarify your tax credits you can benefit from. 
To help you with record keeping in order to claim tax credits there are some basic steps you should be taking. Read More→

Optimizing Your Training time with ENounce

Are You Getting Most Out of Your Training Hours?

I love training that is archived and available to me 24/7.  It’s great to attend live webinar events but the learning process takes more than a hour long webinar to implement.  The training system system I’m in, Daily Marketing Coach gives evergreen content meaning that it is always fresh and available. However it still takes time, a lot of time to review content.

In the learning curve of Daily marketing Coach, step by step training is provided.  When implementing the material in a stop and go method around busy schedules, time is of essence.
You also have to factor in the personal speaking speed of trainers when it comes to replay time. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have control of the video playback speed? Read More→
