Congratulations! You’ve decided to start your own home based business. It’s important you establish a proper office environment with the necessary devices to make operating your business as efficiently as possible.
Your home office should be set up in an area where it remains separate, in some way, from the family space of your home. You’ll need a cell phone with voice mail and email. If you have a full time job and are starting your business part time, you can respond to any inquiries during your breaks. This may help demonstrate you’re available during all regular business hours. Next in line is a computer. Doesn’t matter whether it’s a desk top or lap top. You’ll have a much more accurate view of your business and it’s profitability. It also proves handy at tax time as you can access pertinent information quickly. An “all-in-one” copier/scanner/fax machine completes your basic home office device needs. You’ll need to scan documents, print material and, yes, be able to accept and send faxes. I’ve found one I highly recommend. Go to my website for details. cleanlots.com. It’s very affordable and will do the job professionally.
Some sort of filing system will be needed to store records. You’ll need folders for business expenses, banking, legal, insurance, promotion, etc. A small filing cabinet, box or desk drawer keeps everything organized.
