Home business owners rarely think about business assets, and when they do, there is one asset they often overlook.
When you work for yourself it is not unusual to become engulfed in the pursuit of income and forget to invest in your most important asset.
Your Most Important Business Asset
Your health is your greatest business asset and you should treat it as such.
With all the activities that need attention in a home business combined with the busy lifestyle of the 21st century, it is easy for a business owner to put their health aside for future consideration, but this is a big mistake.
When your life is balanced between personal and business time, you can prioritize your health and be a more productive employee working for yourself.
Working with a schedule is often the best way to go. Create a schedule that matches the results you want in your business.
If you want a full-time income then plan to work full-time hours. Schedule 40 hours a week for business activities.
For those who want a part-time work-at-home commission schedule, your work hours need to be between 20-30 per week.
While the desired income won’t immediately start flowing, a consistent, steady and balanced schedule that you consistently and steadily work year-round will create the income you desire.
When you take personal time off, you will be more productive and focused in the office. Many major corporations are switching their work ethics to a balanced approach as science shows that fewer work hours and more personal time makes for better employees.
Less work means less stress and a more productive worker.
There is nothing more important than your health because without it, you have no life.
Take the time to exercise! You don’t have to go to the gym, just incorporate everyday activities such as a simple walk to make a big impact on your long-term health.
Health Is Your Best Business Asset
Rarely do we equate the food we eat to our work performance, but what we eat affects us more than we think!
Did you ever notice how difficult it is to concentrate when you are hungry?
Food has a direct impact on our cognitive performance, which is why a poor decision at lunch can derail an entire afternoon.
When you make poor food choices you can have a tough time staying focused and performance drops.
Make a plan to eat three small balanced meals a day and three healthy snacks in between to satisfy between-meal cravings and prioritize your health!
Your Best Business Asset
Your health is the best business asset you have. Invest in it regularly and it will pay off handsomely.
If you work hard and make a fortune it will mean nothing if you don’t protect your greatest business asset… your health.
