How to Set Up a Tidy Home Office for Success

By Mandy L. Manley, Professional Organizer and Owner of Skeleton Key Organizing

One of the best things about being an entrepreneur is that you have ultimate control over your workspace. Where and how you choose to work are up to you to decide. Want to spend some time making calls while you walk your dog? No problem! Need a change of scenery? Head to a library or park to help you focus. However, there are fewer spaces that are better set up for ultimate productivity than a tidy home office.

By following these simple steps, your home office can become a powerhouse hub for your business and the place where you do your best work.

Choose a Space
When picking the best location, follow the advice to “know thyself.” Some people work best with soft music playing, and others need silence to get things done. Be aware of what steals your focus and what brings you the best energy. Pick a spot in your home that is free of distractions, and has ample natural lighting. If you plan to do most of your work from home, let your family know that you’re “on the clock” when you’re in your office (but schedule family time as well).

Add Supplies Based on Tasks
Think about the tasks you will be accomplishing in your office. What supplies will you need? If you’ll be making phone calls, consider adding a phone stand and wireless earbuds so you can move around freely or type while on a call. Will you use a digital or analog calendar? How will you organize your files? Make sure you add a basic set of office supplies, including your business cards (pack an extra set into your daily carry bag so you have them handy wherever you go), pens and pencils, letter opener, stapler and sticky notes (which you’ll need in step four).

Aim for Efficiency
To make your workspace a truly efficient place, place the items you use most often within arm’s reach. Keep the things you use only occasionally further away. By reducing the number of items close to where you sit, your desktop will be easier to keep tidy and uncluttered.

Post Your Goals
Now it’s time for those sticky notes from step two! As you set goals for your year, quarter, month and week, write each one down on a sticky note. You might write the whole goal or just a word or phrase that reminds you of what you’re trying to achieve. Place these notes in a visible spot so you see them each day. Change them up or move them around at the start of each month so you don’t stop noticing them. For example, I like to keep the word “SHARE” on my desk to remind me to talk to new people every chance I get.

Tidy Up Each Day
Take five minutes at the end of each day to tidy up your desk and workspace. Put away any items that you used, and return them to their proper zone (from step three). It won’t take long to get your office tidy, and you’ll feel better tomorrow when you start the day with an orderly workspace. You can even schedule a time for a more thorough cleaning each week or month; just add them as a reminder to your calendar. Remember: it’s easier to maintain order than to create it from scratch!

By taking the time to think through the setup of your home office, you can create a space that fosters productivity and success.

Paula Coffey of Creston, OH is using Reliv to live out her dream of a happy and healthy retirement. Find out how here!

Reliv Regimen: Arthaffect®, ReversAge®, LunaRich X®

Family Affair: My mom saw great results on the products and I became a Master Affiliate shortly thereafter. In just two years with Reliv I replaced my income as an owner and operator of a hair salon that took me 30 years to build. Nearly everyone in my family followed, including my aunt, daughter and son. We’ve never looked back!

Painful Setbacks: I fought a painful ruptured disc in my back for years. Reliv provided the nutritional support I needed and now my back feels great every day!

Living the Dream: With Reliv we have the opportunity to travel every month of the year and winter in Florida. We now fill our days doing what we want to do: fishing, golfing and spending time with our seven grandchildren. Thank you, Reliv!

My Story: Lynn Drewes

Drewes-webLynn Drewes of Myrtle Beach, SC enjoys the freedom of being a Reliv distributor while being rewarded with good health and financial stability.

Bioavailability: I was looking to improve my health and heard about Reliv from a friend. I did the research and learned that Reliv products are absorbed by the body better than vitamin pills. I had tried everything else so I wanted to give Reliv a try.

It Works: Five weeks later, I noticed a huge difference. This was the first attempt at better health that worked in years. I experienced far fewer headaches and sleepless nights. My whole family’s health has improved — allergies, energy and more.

Fair Deal: My own health results led me to the business. I absolutely love the freedom of doing this job anywhere I go. My last job was a lot of work for little money, but not Reliv. Now I see my efforts rewarded.

Healthy Start: I started taking Reliv three years ago. My results were so dramatic that I couldn’t help but tell everyone I knew! That’s when I realized that Reliv could mean more to me than just good health.

Igniting Success: I’ve always loved
helping others and seeing their lives
change. When Reliv announced the
Ignition Promotion in August, I told
my husband that I’d be busy for three
months. I turned on the ignition, pushed
the gas and didn’t stop!

Teamwork: Now that the reduced profit level qualifications are here to stay, I have the opportunity to help even more Distributors see success. That’s the great thing about Reliv — when we work together to grow our businesses, we all win!

A Crafty Idea: As a stay-at-home mom who homeschools, I’m always looking for ways to contribute to our finances. I heard about Reliv from a complete stranger in a store and knew it was the answer to my prayers.

Growing Fast: In my first year as a parttime Reliv Distributor, I made more than I ever would selling crafts at fairs and farmers markets. My approach is talking to people face-to-face and asking if they want to work from home.

Rocky Top: We live on a mountaintop in Tennessee in the middle of nowhere, but we moved away from our job market to do it. My husband has to work away for half the year and my goal is to bring him home!

Burned Out: When I first found Reliv seven years ago, I was a burned-out attorney at a law firm. I thought the three food groups were caffeine, nicotine and happy hour. I was on my way to crash and burn.

Seeing a Change: I started the products, began losing weight and improved my outlook. Clients could even see the change in me! I wasn’t sure about the business, but I loved the idea of helping people. Thankfully I did start a Reliv business and eventually resigned from the law firm.  Continue reading “My Story: Eileen Tesch”
