Your answer
Do you have a separate work area where you can concentrate for 4 to 6 hours per day? *
You’ll need an area away from distractions where you can make phone calls and fully focus on your prospects and customers. This could be a spare bedroom, dining table, or other separate area. Ideally you would have access to this area into the early evening because often you must call people after their work day finishes.
No
Yes
Do you have the discipline to go into “work mode” at a set time (or times) each day and stay focused? *
Can you create a psychological boundary around your work area so that when you cross it you go into or out of work mode?
No

Are you organized? Do you like to make lists and prioritize your day? *
As you get busier it is necessary to plan your daily activities well. Planning a week in advance with time allocated to important tasks is proven to help achieve better results.

Are you task-oriented? Can you focus on a specific task until it’s completed? Or do you frequently leave things unfinished? *

Do you have a wide network of friends and/or colleagues from previous organizations you’ve worked for, or schools and organizations you belong to? *
