Choose a Wireless Plan That Speaks to You
Beyond using wireless phones for talking to your friends and family, they are also considered necessary for conducting business. Choosing a plan that meets your specific needs is essential. Here is some advice when shopping for a wireless provider:

  • Estimate the number of peak or “anytime,” minutes you will need. Pay close attention to peak vs. off-peak minutes allowed and time frames for using each.
  • Consider location and travel needs, then match them to the most appropriate plan.
  • Avoid signing long-term contracts, especially those in excess of one year.
  • Explore shared-plan options if several pe ople in your business will need a company- supplied phone.

Picking a Location
Choosing the right location for your business can be a major factor in its success or failure. A good location may allow a struggling business to survive, but a weak location could mean trouble for even a very well-run business. Make sure you know all the legal restrictions of your place of business.
Setting up a Home Office
If you plan to work from home, you’ll want to set up a home office designed to promote productivity, creativity and comfort. The following are some ideas to consider:

  • Check out your town’s zoning laws, which may have restrictions.
  • Choose a room for your home office and get it organized.
  • Make sure that your house is adequately wired to accommodate your equipment.
  • Pick out the right furniture for your new office that’s comfortable and durable.

• Choose stimulating colors in your office that promotes creativity and mental activity.

  • Establish regular business hours and rules so you won’t get distracted.

Create a Professional Image for your Home Business
Some people will wrongfully conclude that you and your business are less than professional because you run it from your home. While this is unfair and narrow-minded, it is still a fact. Here are some tips for creating the right image:

  • Incorporate your enterprise or register your business name. Nothing says “professional” to potential clients as a corporate or business name.
  • Sign up for an executive suite or serviced office when you meet with clients
  • Give your home office number only to existing clients and get an answering service number for anyone else.
  • Consider the image of your email address.
  • Get business cards and letterhead printed on professional printed quality stock.
  • Use a laser printer to produce your correspondence.
