Staying Motivated and Sane while being Self-Employed

motivated self-employed

Being self-employed sounds like The American Dream, but believe it or not, it isn’t for everyone! When you are responsible for your accountability, it takes the right amount of focus, dedication, and adhering to schedule to keep your attention span in check. While the benefits of YOU being the man (or the woman) is plentiful, here are some tips to keep you productive and on track.

 

Use Cloud Services

If you lose your backpack, or your computer dies on you, you need to reboot from another device and still access all of your work. There are so many cloud-based tools that let you access your documents, images, project management platforms, CRM, invoices, and more. Some of the most commonly-used cloud-based tools are Google Suite, which includes Gmail, Drive for documents and spreadsheets, Slides, and more; Dropbox for storing and sharing images and materials; and Evernote. It is crucial to find which tools work for you, use them, and rest easy knowing you can access your work from wherever you are and whatever device you’re on.

 

Use a Timer and a System that works for you

One of our favorite productivity systems includes the Pomodoro Technique, where you work in 25-minute bursts. This popular time-management method can help you power through distractions, hyper-focus, and get things done in short bursts while taking frequent breaks to come up for air and relax. 

 

Find a Coworking Space

One of the best productivity tips we can give is to find a coworking space as your “home office.”  You are prone to discover that you’re more productive in this environment than a coffee shop because you can put your head down and get some dedicated work done.

What Our Clients Say

Shannon G.

I am a court reporter who needs conference rooms to hold depositions on a regular basis. I used to use hotel conference rooms, which weren’t very professional, but were the only places available to rent by the hour, and were VERY costly. Another court reporter told me about Work Webb, and I have been happily using their services for almost two years. I have also told all national firms that I work with to use them. The rooms are clean, the staff is VERY helpful, there’s wifi, snacks/coffee/water, use of phones when my clients can’t make it in person, copy machine, and Susan and Heidi are there to make sure all of my needs are met…even lunch selections from great nearby restaurants. I look forward to having jobs there. The positive and upbeat spirit in that office is infectious. It also happens to be the most beautiful building in downtown Daytona Beach. Also, the rates literally cannot be beat!
