When you run an internet home business, it is tempting to commute from your bed to your desk in your pyjamas and ignore what you look like. After all, if nobody can see you, where is the harm in being lazy and not getting dressed for work?
It may not harm in your business, as such, but the harm lies in the long term effect that it will have on you if you don’t dress for work. Wearing a jacket and tie or a glamorous outfit, isn't necessary, but getting dressed for work is important even if you will be indoors the entire day. Working in whatever you wore to bed, you are signaling to yourself that your internet home business isn't important and that you are not a professional and should not be treated as such. In the medium to long term, your business is going to start to feel like just something else you do at home, and you are going to lose sight of the fact that you are actually running an internet home business.
There are some things that you can do to make sure that you always stay professional and that you are kept aware of this at all times, which will make your business run much more smoothly. Be sure that you dress for work each day. You should be able to feel like you are at work, and you should wear something other than the clothes you would wear if you were simply at home. Set hours to be at work. Working at your internet home business is something that can be great, but it can also turn into a monster where you feel you have to be at work all of the time. If you set yourself business hours and stick to them, you are more likely to treat your business as a business, and not something that is taking over your life. Answer the phone and emails in a professional manner, so that whoever you are communicating with will know that you are a professional, and your internet home business is your chosen profession.
