Owning a home based business holds its own challenge far different than those of people who leave the house every day to go to a 9 to 5 job. In the corporate environment you have a boss or someone you must answer to, in your home based business you answer to yourself, so your daily operation must be done with efficiency.

If you have children at home with you there is an even more complicated element in your work at home tasks, they present more interruptions and means of moving off focus than for those that do not have these distractions. Not to mention the lack of space you might have with all their toys around to keep them occupied.

Therefore the first thing you must do in order to maintain focus and your sanity is to make a place in the house that is yours. If the best you can do is the corner of the room that will do, it simply needs to be a place where you can have what's necessary to dedicate yourself to your business.

This is not ideal, but if you have children at home this may be the best you can do during the day. Many stay at home moms have found it more productive to work while the kids are napping or after they have gone to bed at night. Ideally to achieve the most efficiency out of your available time you would want a place that is quite, where you can close the door and stay focused.

If all you give yourself is two to four hours a day of focused productive time you will see results in you home business. And the more of those results you see will give you the time you're looking for as a home business owner. The freedom to go to the kid's soccer game or be a parent helper at their school is after all a big reason why you have invested the time and effort to work from home.

Another way to maintain sanity in your daily home business tasks is to plan. Plan your day, schedule out the things that are the most important to be accomplished that day. Do only what you can handle and what will drive benefit for your business goals and get those done. You can purchase an inexpensive day planner at your local office supply store and check off each task as they have been complete. I do this everyday; I don't know how people get along without them.

Balancing your work and your life is important for your success as a business person, as a spouse or parent and for your overall health.
