Clearing Out Clutter in Your Business

Clearing your mind and your workplace of clutter can be a big step in moving you forward to success in your business!

You may be asking, what does this have to do with building a successful  Network Party Plan business and leading a team of others!

I assure you, it has a LOT to do with success and making the most of your time. After all, part of the beauty in the Direct Sales business model is to have some time freedom!

Get ready for success and MAKE ROOM FOR SUCCESS.

Do this by cleaning out and clearing out. Get very focused and set aside some time each day of the week to do this. By the end of the week, your home will be cleaned and along with it, your mind.

Are you a pack rat, saving everything “just in case?” Are your drawers, cabinets and closets filled to the brim?

Is this serving you well, or is it affecting your ability to take action and move forward?

I know for me, clutter affects me mentally and holds me back! How about you?

So, let’s start today and start with your office area.

Clean out the drawers, cabinets, files, etc.

Get rid of ANYTHING you don’t need and are not using.

Prepare your work area so that it is a calm, comfortable, happy place in which to conduct business.

Make things readily accessible to you.

Today, start with your office. Throw out “junk” you no longer need and get your party supplies and those things you take to every party in one place, neat, organized and
ready for action.

Have files for Hostess Coaching forms, invitations, order forms, follow ups, and any materials you bring with you or use regularly.

Make your office a space that is inviting and that you feel good in. This will make you more likely to engage in work activities there, which move you forward!

Then, move to your bedroom and do the same.

Follow that with your bathroom.

Then, your kitchen.

Your main living area, and so on.

Do one room a day until it is done.

Start piles for throw away, give away and do something with.

Make sure you get rid of the “give away” piles ASAP. Then, you won’t have a tendency to pick through it and “re-claim” stuff you really don’t need.

By cleaning out, you are making room for success and the “things” that come along with it!

Make it a GREAT week and let me know how you are doing with it! Leave your comments below!

    Hi Jackie,

    I remember the days when I have to flip through a lot of ‘stuff’ to find a document. Can’t believe that it could happen in our computer files!! One of my goals is to de-cluster the files and documents in the hard disc in 2013.

    With me opting into million sites whilst I was learning how to generate my own MLM leads online, I have to de-cluster my emails too 🙂

    I agree with you that having an organised work area is ‘inviting’. I feel a lot better when my home-office is clean and tidy 🙂 The clearing of the mess spot may seem time consuming. However, it is a good ‘return on investment (ROI) of our time! Besides, it sets a great example for the children too 🙂

      It will be time well spent, no doubt! I agree! I have buckled down and created time to do some things that did not seem “forward focused” but did ultimately free up time and make me more productive ongoing!

      Very worth it!

      EXPECT Success!

    Make room for success….liked that line very much. It is usually we who should strive and work hard to reach our goals rather than depending on destiny or luck. I think hard work always pay. :)Thanks for such an inspiration that made my day!!!

    I started this on Monday. Tackling small projects daily is making me feel so much better each day. It is so freeing to just throw out (give away) papers and things you don’t need. Thanks for the reminder that this is good for me!
