Beating the Home Business Blues
I can definitely agree with the statement that, after a little while, running your own business can be pretty lonely. Many people that I have talked to say the same thing, and the reason behind it is lack of human interaction. I see this happening on two fronts. First, while you are working, you are more than likely alone in your home office, or working closely with one other person. This means that while you work, you aren’t out building face-to-face relationships (even if you are communicating via email or instant messaging). Then, unlike working for someone else’s company, you don’t have the eight-hour day that ends with you going home and out into the world. If you are a true entrepreneur, you are more than likely soaking yourself into your work day and night, which even further limits the amount of face-to-face contact you can have.
Fortunately, there is some good advice out there on how to handle this phenomenon. First, as we have talked about previously, get out there and meet with your clients/customers/userbase/colleagues in face-to-face situations. Nothing beats that.
Read on for a few more tips on beating the home business blues.
