Self-employment has been rising by 4% per year for the last ten years, which means that every year there are nearly 10 million new small business owners. And with the available power of internet outsourcing and mobile technology, it’s now possible to work from your home, boat, or vehicle even if you are a salaried employee.
But working at home carries its own set of challenges--longer hours, no water cooler, a different set of distractions. This list is a result of my own hard knocks. Has my computer crashed? Oh, yeah. Have clients called with questions I couldn’t find the answer for? Have I stood up from my desk after 14 hours in front of a computer and wondered why my back creaks?
Stacie, a friend and fellow entrepreneur, asked me for advice. Stacie (not her real name, for obvious reasons) is a videographer that works with a number of PR firms and clients. “My video files and script changes are highly organized,” she said. “But whenever I come up for air I realize my accounting is a mess, my personal marketing consists of bent and smudged business cards with an old phone number, and I have no clean clothes.”
A cursory online search on the topic of getting organized led me to two different types of information. The first was a grab bag of articles on “how to organize your office” that included doubtuflly helpful advice like “don’t stuff your file folders too full.” The second source of help was a long list of 'organizing coaches' who charge upwards of $100 an hour to help you clean out your closets and your life.
If you're like me, you need advice on how to get and stay organized, but you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars or have your closets explored by strangers.
The following 50 tips will help you get organized and stay organized. You may also find that your creativity and self-confidence will increase along with your newfound efficiency!
