So we took a big step today and rented an office. It’s only a three month lease, with an option to renew or extend if things work out. It might not seem a big deal to most people but it’s a huge step for us. For one thing it’s a serious commitment to building our Melaleuca business. For another thing it’ll really help focus our minds and make us treat this business as a serious business.
Working from home is all well and good but part of the problem with it is you are HOME. You get less opportunity to get out and about. But most of all, the problem is you are home. With all your comforts and distractions around you. I’m sure many people are able to work at home and focus on their business, putting in the hours they need. But In our own home we find it hard to commit to putting in the hours we need in order to grow out business properly. Going out to an office should remove that problem. It’s like going to a regular job. You know that you are there to work, so you don’t allow anything to distract you. You can set your hours and work to them diligently. What sets it apart from a regular job though is you can set your own hours. So if a family matter comes up you can attend to it and simply put in more hours another day to make up for it. Or if the weather is inclement you can simply choose to work from home that day instead. It sure beats working for Corporate America where your time is never your own. So we’ll give this our best shot and see what happens.
It just feels nice to say we have our own office. We start using it from Monday 1st July. Our office is based in Piscatway, NJ. If anyone is curious to see what we do, message me and we’ll arrange for you to meet us at our office, where we can show you what our business is about. Coming to us is no commitment to joining us and you never know, what you see and hear might make sense to you.
