Working from home can be convenient to employees and help companies save money, but it’s not the right fit for every worker. Distractions are plentiful when you are home, and often it’s only the most disciplined who can remain productive and efficient.

“Working from home should be considered dangerous and could be a disaster when you consider the potential impact on your quality of life,” warns Grant Cardone, author of If You’re Not First, You’re Last. “The level of discipline it takes to work from home and generate solid results is intense and most people fail at home because of this one fact.”

If your idea of working from home involves wearing pajamas and juggling personal and work responsibilities at the same time, it’s time to reshape your priorities. Follow these five tips to effectively manage work and life as a remote worker.

1. Have a Separate Office Space

Just because you don’t have to go into an office and sit behind a desk everyday doesn’t mean you can stay in bed or in front of the TV with your laptop trying to complete your work.

Career experts recommend setting up a specific office area in the home so you can “go to work” and not be distracted by dirty dishes, a crying child or a favorite TV show.

“Where your workspace is makes a big difference,” says Sara Sutton Fell, CEO of FlexJobs and a at-home worker for nearly 10 years. “When my second son was born, I realized it was really important for me to get more separation, so I moved my office to a space above our detached garage rather than in the house.”

 

2. Set Clear Boundaries

Having a dedicated work space is half the battle, but you also need to set rules about who and what can enter your office.

“Create very strict boundaries where there are no dogs, kids or spouses allowed,” says Cardone. “The door needs to remain shut with only those that have top clearance allowed access.”

The work space should also be void of distractions. For instance, forgo putting a TV in your office or checking Facebook five times a day.

3. Keep Regular Work Hours and Prepare

Maintaining normal office hours can help maintain productivity.

According to Joel Garfinkle, author of Getting Ahead: Three Steps to Take Your Career to the Next Level, not only should you strictly abide by your work hours, you should make sure your family and friends also respect the rules.

“Your family and friends need to pretend you simply aren’t there, unless it’s a dire emergency,” says Garfinkle. “Remind your family of these hours and let them know you expect them to respect your work time so that you won’t have to work when you should be spending with them.”

In addition to setting the hours, career experts say it’s a good idea not to work all day in your pajamas. Keep your normal preparation routine, take a shower and get dressed, even if your commute is just down the hall.

“People brag about working from home in their underwear, but that  is no way to grow a successful business,” says Cardone. “Have a set time, wake up, shower, and get dressed just as you would if you were commuting to a professional office space and you will be more productive.”

 

4. Change Your Mindset

Avoiding a long commute and having more flexibility over your schedule are enticing results of working from home, but there’s more to it than these perks.

“The main motivation of convenience or comfort, which most people who work from home have, is flawed,” says Cardone. Yes, it’s more convenient to not have to go to an office every day, but remote workers can’t view it as an excuse to slack off.

While self-starters are better suited for working at home, according to Sutton Fell, she says being a proactive communicator is the “secret weapon” to being successful.

“By taking initiative to communicate, you have a motivated and leading role in the connection with your colleagues’ activities and keeping them abreast of what you’re achieving and keeping on the pulse on everyone’s expectations.”

5. Know When to Throw in the Towel

If your productivity is declining or it’s difficult to balance work and life, then it may be time to re-evaluate your work situation.

Perhaps you need more interaction with co-workers or bosses or maybe being at home is too distracting, but it’s important to be honest, says Garfinkle.

“It’s OK that you’re not well-suited for working from home,” says Garfinkle. “There’s nothing wrong with that.”

Income Statement  definition: A document generated monthly and/or annually that reports the earnings of a company by stating all relevant income and all expenses that have been incurred to generate that income. Also referred to as a profit and loss statement.

The income statement is a simple and straightforward report on a business’ cash-generating ability. It’s a scorecard on the financial performance of your business that reflects when sales are made and expenses are incurred. It draws information from the various financial models such as revenue, expenses, capital (in the form of depreciation) and cost of goods.

By combining these elements, the income statement illustrates just how much your company makes or loses during the year by subtracting cost of goods and expenses from revenue to arrive at a net result, which is either a profit or a loss. It differs from a cash flow statement because the income statement doesn’t show when revenue is collected or when expenses are paid. It does, however, show the projected profitability of the business over the time frame covered by the plan. For a business plan, the income statement should be generated on a monthly basis during the first year, quarterly for the second and annually for the third.

Your income statement lists your financial projections in the following manner:

  • Income includes all the income generated by the business.
  • Cost of goods includes all the costs related to the sale of products in inventory.
  • Gross profit margin is the difference between revenue and cost of goods. Gross profit margin can be expressed in dollars, as a percentage, or both. As a percentage, the GP margin is always stated as a percentage of revenue.
  • Operating expenses include all overhead and labor expenses associated with the operations of the business.
  • Total expenses are the sum of cost of goods and operating expenses.
  • Net profit is the difference between gross profit margin and total expenses. The net income depicts the business’ debt and capital capabilities.
  • Depreciation reflects the decrease in value of capital assets used to generate income. It’s also used as the basis for a tax deduction and an indicator of the flow of money into new capital.
  • Earnings before interest and taxes shows the capacity of a business to repay its obligations.
  • Interest includes all interest payable for debts, both short-term and long-term.
  • Taxes includes all taxes on the business.
  • Net profit after taxes shows the company’s real bottom line.

Although the basics of an income statement are the same from business to business, there are notable differences between services, merchandisers, and manufacturers when it comes to the accounting of inventory.

For service businesses, inventory includes supplies or spare parts–nothing for manufacture or resale. Retailers and wholesalers, on the other hand, account for their resale inventory under cost of goods sold, also known as cost of sales. This refers to the total price paid for the products sold during the income statement’s accounting period. Freight and delivery charges are customarily included in this figure. Accountants segregate costs of goods on an operating statement because it provides a measure of gross profit margin when compared with sales, an important yardstick for measuring the firm’s profitability.

For a retailer or wholesaler, cost of goods sold is equal to total inventory at the beginning of the accounting period plus any merchandise purchased, including freight costs, minus the inventory present at the end of the accounting period. This is your total cost of goods sold.

Although manufacturers account for cost of goods sold in the same manner as merchandisers by reporting beginning and ending inventories, as well as any purchases made during the accounting period, their approaches are also different because they track inventory through three phases.

  1. Raw material is purchased to create a finished product.
  2. Work-in-progress is inventory that is partially assembled.
  3. Finished products are inventory fully assembled and available for sale.

Associated with this process are other costs, such as direct labor and factory overhead. To account for all these costs, manufacturers usually report them on a separate statement called the “cost of goods manufactured.” This statement is formed by first listing the work-in-progress inventory at the beginning of the accounting period. The next listed are raw material and direct labor. The total cost of materials available for use includes inventory at the beginning of the accounting period plus new purchases and freight charges. Subtract the raw material inventory present at the end of the reporting period from the cost of material available for use to determine the cost of materials used. Add direct labor and manufacturing overhead to this amount. This results in your total manufacturing costs. Add the work-in-progress beginning inventory present at the end of the accounting period. This supplies you with the cost of goods manufactured.

In the income statement for manufacturers, cost of goods manufactured is added to the finished goods inventory at the beginning of the inventory, resulting in total cost of goods available for sale. The finished goods inventory present at the end of the reporting period is subtracted from this amount to produce the cost of goods sold.

When comparing several income statements over time, you can chart trends in your operating performance. This helps you chart future goals and strategies for sales, inventory, and operating overhead.

Welcome to our series of videos on Business Model Canvas. Today we are going to talk about the second building block Value Propositions and how to fill your Canvas Business Model by answering a few simple questions.

The Value Propositions building block describes the bundle of products and services that create value for a specific Customer Segment. This building block is the reason why customers turn to one company over another. It solves a customer problem or satisfies a customer need.

Some Value Proposition may be innovative and represent a new or disruptive offer. Others may be similar to existing market offers, but with added features and attributes.

Value Propositions
a) What value do we deliver to the customer?
b) Which one of our customer’s problems are we helping to solve? Which customer needs are we satisfying

Definition of Balance Sheet:

A financial statement that summarizes a company’s assets, liabilities and shareholders’ equity at a specific point in time. These three balance sheet segments give investors an idea as to what the company owns and owes, as well as the amount invested by the shareholders.

The balance sheet must follow the following formula:

Assets = Liabilities + Shareholders’ Equity

It’s called a balance sheet because the two sides balance out. This makes sense: a company has to pay for all the things it has (assets) by either borrowing money (liabilities) or getting it from shareholders (shareholders’ equity).

Each of the three segments of the balance sheet will have many accounts within it that document the value of each. Accounts such as cash, inventory and property are on the asset side of the balance sheet, while on the liability side there are accounts such as accounts payable or long-term debt. The exact accounts on a balance sheet will differ by company and by industry, as there is no one set template that accurately accommodates for the differences between different types of businesses.

Should you buy or rent a home?

The flowchart below may be able to help you decide.

Like with most money questions, there’s no one, universal answer.

Instead, it depends on your own situation, from the state of your savings to whether you’re willing to coordinate getting a leaky faucet fixed.

When going through the chart, keep in mind that your answer is just for now — if the chart says you’re better off renting, it certainly doesn’t mean you have to rent forever.

In six months, a year, or even a matter of weeks, your situation could change and so could your answer.
