7. Don’t Skimp on the Tech
Stay-at-home entrepreneurs still have to communicate with people in the outside world. You are most likely speaking with clients through your smartphone and the computer. Make sure you have a high speed internet connection, and a computer that can handle the work you are doing. Upgrade to the newest operating system, so that your browser and various software can run properly. Anyone who works in video or photo editing may also need a computer with fast processing speed, and tons of space.
Remember that unlike buying the newest cell phone or computer just because you want it, getting new tech for your business is not “spoiling yourself”. It may increase your productivity tenfold if you can get things done faster. If you find that having outdated technology is holding you back from getting your job done, it may be time for an upgrade. The good news is that this is an investment towards your business, and you can usually write it off on your taxes.
