As a work at home entrepreneur one of my biggest downfalls is maintaining my focus on what I need to do. There are always a hundred things to do and about five times that trying to get my attention. And when you own your own business, because let’s be honest if you use your blog, Etsy shop, Ebay account, or consulting gigs to make money, it’s your business. So it’s important to do your best at focusing on the important things to keep things going.
So today, I’ve decided to compile so of my best tips for focusing and getting things done while you are working at home.
