As a busy entrepreneur, a calendar is essential. Utilizing a calendar is the best way to ensure you never forget an event. There are so many to choose from—desk, pocket or digital. Whether it’s a traditional paper calendar or a high-tech digital calendar, you can record all your important dates and reminders for both your personal and professional life.
An iPad is a great way to make your business portable. With Internet access, it’s easy to take your business anywhere. Whether you want to work from home or work from a coffee shop, an iPad allows you to be versatile.
As a professional, it’s imperative to keep a professional journal or notebook to record important information such as ideas or things that need follow up. Depending on the type of home business you own, a journal could be as simple as a small notebook or as elaborate as a leather case with multiple pockets. Think about what you need to organize your day-to-day tasks and interactions.
No home office would be complete without a computer—the central component of most businesses. Choose a computer that fits your work style and nature of business. If you have any other technology that needs to be compatible with your computer (i.e. iPad or iPod), be sure to purchase a computer that will work with your other devices.
A desk is the motherboard of your home office. Depending on your personal preferences, there are desks to fit every need—ranging from the style, color, material, size and number of drawers. Before you purchase a desk, envision what you would like to store in the desk and how much space you will need to work. Also, be sure to measure how much space you have for desk to ensure it will fit comfortably in your home office.
