How will your business be affected by interest rate rises?

If your business has loans or credit cards, the interest rate is highly important. This is money you pay out of pocket so the lower it is the better it is. What I try to do each month is pay more than the interest rate charges/minimum payment due....even a few dollars will help lower the principal on the account. If possible, look into getting a credit card with a lower interest rate or refinancing the loan. Another thing I try to do is to pay cash for items that I need so I am not constantly loading up the credit card. Best, Helene

How do I make working from home efficient?

Indeed, there are many distractions when working at home: home phone, chores, neighbors, etc. Over the years, I've developed the discipline to work at the task at hand...I start with making a list. On 1 side are the work tasks: reply to e-mails, work on client files, make/return calls, etc. I set aside the hours I will need to do this and stick to this schedule. On the other side of the list, I write down home chores: shopping, cooking, laundry, etc. I make this list the night before so I know what I have to do the next day. Determine what are the best hours for you to work: are you a morning person or a night owl? A daily schedule is important: do you have children to get ready for school in the morning? Dogs to walk? Check in with elderly parents? Get these done first, then dedicate yourself to your business. I confess...I often throw in a load of laundry before I head to the home office and check on this throughout the day...sometimes it goes into the dinner hour, sometimes I only do 1 load a day. You have to create the structure of how you will work and everyone's needs are different. And finally, I don't often get to finish everything on my list...I do the important ones first and then move the rest of them to the next day....it's okay to do this! Best, Helene
