How to Stay Motivated as an Online Home Business Entrepreneur

Written by Michelle Jayes, edited by DREAMFly Marketing

No matter how dedicated and passionate you are about your online home business, as an entrepreneur working from home it is inevitable at some point you are going to find your motivation dropping.

This is something that will happen slowly over a period of time, just as it would if you owned a business right down the road from your house. In fact, many of the readers here on DREAMFly Marketing’s Marketing Magnetics Blog may own “traditional” businesses. But you still have to find motivation.

Recognizing Reduced Motivation
Because this can affect work production and occurs over a long period of time, recognizing the issue can prove difficult. Prevent it from happening with these few daily habits we will provide to you.

Failing to follow good, solid habits can negatively affect your online home business. Therefore, it is essential for you to keep up on your daily tasks and keep your head in the game.

Online entrepreneurs need motivationg for strategic marketing successes.

Captivating the World Takes Motivation.

Step Away from the Computer – Yes Step Away
Feeling fuzzy and drained? Unmotivated? Take a break! We wouldn’t ask a surgeon or other professional to work fact that might be scarey, so we are saying the same to you.

The emails and phone calls can be returned in a few hours. The world will not end.

Some people find the best break is to temporarily switch the project that they are working on, which can assist in rejuvenating your passion and drive.

Pushing through a period where one feels unmotivated is actually more harmful than helpful – your work will be affected. If you are not sufficiently focused your chances of making mistakes will increase or alternatively you may find yourself just not working efficiently. When you take a break it gives you the opportunity to refresh your mind and come back to working enthusiastically.

Two hours of focused and efficient work reaps better rewards than eight hours of trying to work and losing focus.

Set Boundaries for Work, Family and Enjoyment
Yes you have to set boundaries! One of the difficulties facing online home business entrepreneurs is that they tend to spend a good portion of their time in front of their computers.

Even if you own a traditional business, you may feel the same with all the social media you are most likely managing during and after your work day.

Plan your work time just as if it is a 9 to 5 job, if that exists anymore, and plan family or hobby time. Some days may go longer but a schedule helps. This will give you structure and often helps to provide direction.

Enjoy Free Time
Keep motivation elevated by making sure that you really enjoy your free time. Many people feel guilty when they take time off and end up spending that time worrying that they are not working.

One of the main reasons people choose to work from home is the freedom it provides, so be sure to really enjoy free time. It benefits you and your business.

A big issue in the workplace regularly addressed is staff motivation to ensure productivity is high. Unmotivated workers are more likely to make mistakes. This applies equally to running an online home business.

Be pro-active, take regular breaks, set boundaries for yourself and enjoy the free time you plan. By doing this you will keep your motivation levels high and you will find greater success for your online home business.
