#HastingsBizChat: Home-Based Business Part 2

As a follow-up from our first Twitter #HastingsBizChat, we decided to focus the February discussion on home-based (HB) business again. Through the Enterprise Facilitation program, staff received feedback from businesses about additional questions and challenges they faced as a HB business. 

Below is a snapshot of the online discussion that took place:

Q: As a HB business, how do you manage your work/life expectations?

Q: Is procrastination an issue for you as a HB business?

  • DYK: Procrastination isn't always a bad thing? It can help spur creativity: ow.ly/YHXc0 #HastingsBizChat
  • I'm just finding out now about a technique called "Implementation Intentions." Yet to try it. 
    I heard about implementation intentions (AKA if/then planning) on a SubReddi.  On implementation intentions to combat procrastination: youtube.com/watch?v=Tka7Q-…

Q: With many tasks on the go as a HB business, have you ever thought about a virtual assistant?

  • Virtual assistant? Yes. But I need to be better at figuring out what to outsource.

And there you have it, a quick overview from #HastingsBizChat looking at home-based business.  Be sure to mark your calendars for our next Tweetchat on Wednesday, March 30th from noon to 1pm EST.
