The right tool for the right job is a concept that has been around since the beginning of time. However, it’s not always easy to know what tools are right for your situation. In this article, we’ll cover some DIY working tips and hacks that will help you make your vision a reality!
Create a vision board
A vision board is a great way to visualize what you want your life to look like. If you’re not sure where or how to get started, Pinterest has hundreds of ready-made templates that are free for anyone’s use! Using sticky notes and/or printed photos, create the right combination of images and words on your board. Stick them up somewhere visible (like above your desk at work!) so they can motivate you every day as you go about doing your job.
If possible, choose an image that means something special to only YOU: it will be especially powerful in keeping things focused on what really matters to YOU during busy working days!
Make your own business cards
When you’re networking with potential clients or meeting new people in a professional setting, it is always important to have business cards on hand.
If creating your own isn’t really feasible right now due to budget constraints, there are many online companies that will allow you to upload your information and create customized cards at an affordable price!
No matter what type of card design you choose, make sure the front contains all of your most relevant contact information: name, phone number(s), e-mail address…even social media links if they apply! While some prefer taking handwritten notes instead of handing out their personal contact info right away, this method allows for easier follow-up later when things get busy.
Learn how to use social media platforms
Social media is a valuable tool for any business, regardless of its size. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are the most popular platforms right now with many people using them to interact on a personal level as well as professionally.
If you have time to learn only one service right now, choose Facebook. It has embedded options that allow users to open up an online store, advertise their products or services directly through the platform, establish e-mail marketing campaigns…the list goes on!
While there’s still plenty you can accomplish without being active in social media right away, it might be worth investigating these powerful networking tools if they haven’t been used before within your company culture.
Find out what you need to start your own business and the best way to go about it
If you’re feeling especially motivated right now to start your own business, it is important that you find out what type of resources are available to help get started.
There might be a local Small Business Development Center near where you live that offers low or no-cost consulting services for anyone pursuing this path! Don’t forget about the right tool for the job you will be doing. It’s a vital part of your business!
Many people who work in a corporate workplace end up starting their own business out of necessity when they realize there’s simply no room for growth within their company. This is not necessarily an easy path… but it can definitely pay off if you’re willing to put in the time and effort needed!
Use free resources like Freecycle, Craigslist, or eBay for secondhand items that are in good condition
If you’re looking for a good deal right now on some used office equipment, Craigslist is always your best bet. It’s free to post an ad as long as it follows their guidelines and there are plenty of people out there who have items they no longer need so the prices tend to be very reasonable!
While eBay offers a platform for selling products you might already own, Freecycle is where I’ve personally found many great deals on almost all new working tools. With this particular site, users offer up what they’re willing to give away right from home…and others can claim them if interested in taking over ownership!
Finding things secondhand not only saves money but reduces waste which benefits our planet directly! 🙂
Start with an idea, then find the most affordable way of making it happen
Have you been itching to start a side hustle right now? Maybe offer up your services as a freelancer or launch an e-commerce site on the side… but don’t know where exactly to begin? Start with whatever it is you’re most excited about. If there’s something that motivates and inspires you, definitely try making those first steps towards turning this idea into reality!
The internet is full of free resources to help you get started. It’s up to you what your vision will be and how much time, energy, and money it takes for you to make it a reality. As long as there are no barriers in the way of achieving our goals, we can achieve anything!
