Set Your Own Hours
Like every other aspect of running a business, effective time management requires determination and a willingness to learn from experience.
By Anthony Noel
People decide to start their own companies for many different reasons. Usually those reasons are as individual as the person starting the venture. Sometimes, however, they are born of righteous notions voiced in ads in the back of craft magazines.
This gets us to the real challenge of the "Be Your Own Boss, Set Your Own Hours" thing. We want to please our customers, but the moment we let them dictate our schedule, we relinquish our control and with it, our time. The only cure for this is a strong willingness to say no; an almost dogged determination to let customers wait.
