Tip of the Week

If you work at home, have set "office hours" and
stick to them. Let your employees, team members,
clients and customers know what your hours are--when
they can best reach you. Honor the time you spend
with your family. If the phone rings during dinner,
let the machine pick it up.
Some easy ways to accomplish this:
*have a separate business phone-turn the ringer off during off hours
*use caller id-unless itīs someone you are expecting, donīt answer it
*have separate voice-mailboxes for family and business
