Is your dream to be your own boss?

Since you’ll be in charge, there are a few things to establish in order to keep your business running smoothly:

  • Find Help-You may want to do it all, but stick with your expertise. Money tight? Find a willing (and smart) classmate to do what you can’t, or won’t.
  • Unproductive-Pick a task that can be done in 15 minutes, or less. Deadline approaching? Manage your time by estimating how long each job might take to finish–then record how long it actually did take to complete. Use this information to gauge other project deadlines. Don’t procrastinate until you are down to the wire–begin a project as soon as you get it. Sometimes outlining it from the beginning can assist in establishing a daily “to-do” list.
