When are you at your best?
One of the beauties of a home based business is the flexibility that
it gives us. There is also a dangerous component of that flexibility and
that is that we have the potential of “flexing ourselves right OUT of the
In order to be successful, we must work our businesses consistently.
That is a given. However, look at when you are most effective and
schedule your work time accordingly.
When is your energy level the highest? Are you an “early bird” or a
“late night owl”? When you sit down to make your plan for the week, look

help us in our quest for balance between business, personal and family
