Quality Leather Repair

Tough Questions to Ask Yourself as a Home Based Business Owner

Once you begin to work for yourself the success of your business is completely on your shoulders. Fortunately, if you are a franchise business owner you do have a built-in support system. But any business owner needs to have a reality check from time to time to make certain they stay on the path of business growth and success.

Here are some of the tough questions you should be asking yourself:

Am I utilizing my time effectively?

A lot of franchise business owners or home-based businesses are free for the first time to manage their own time without having a boss to answer to. It’s very easy to become involved in “busy work” where you feel like you’ve made a monumental effort but with little results. You want to make certain your time is spent being productive. It’s difficult to take a hard look at your time usage and being honest with yourself.

Is it time for a little reinvention?

It’s very easy to become complacent in your business. But it is important that you evolve as your home-based business evolves. Trends and times change, are you doing all you need to do to continue growing and not becoming stagnant in your business. For instance, in our leather restoration business, we make certain we spread the word on vinyl repair for boats and RV’s. It is a growing market at the corporate office location. Just advertising or providing leather repair services without reaching out to a target market would not be wise marketing.

And lastly, ask if you are rewarding yourself for all your hard work.

It’s very easy in your own business to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Unfortunately, if you are working that much and that hard, it’s very easy to become burned out with your business. Set a day off for yourself. Schedule quitting times. And most importantly, don’t forget to take a vacation now and again. After all, that is the reward of owning your own franchise business or home-based business.
