Applying Business Techniques to Homelife

2 Comments

One thing I have learned from running my own business is many of the techniques that are used in a business setting can be applied to your home life too.  Whether it is budgeting, planning or even management of personnel, it really takes little adjustment to make it apply to your home situation.

Here is a link of some very valuable tips on fostering a culture of innovation.  All of these are great for managers of a business or department.  And as “home-managers”, they can be easily applied to your home “staff” too.  I’d bet that if applied correctly, we’d see measurable results.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

  1. Thanks for this link, Amy. I thought it was going to outline organizational techniques, but instead it focuses on motivating your staff and colleagues. Very cool! I love discovering new blogs. I like this one in particular, but I LOVE the post just before this one, called “Flowers first, business second” in which he says to buy flowers even when, especially when, money is tight. YES!!!

  2. I know! I read that too – I loved this line “So I dig deep and bring the roses home — my entire living room taking shape around them.”

Now it's your turn...
