The Joy 0f SOHO: Making a Life While Making a Living
A Better Choice
The next time you overhear a friend or coworker chattering excitedly about SOHO, don'tassume that they are talking about New York. In today's business world SOHO refers to "SmallOffice/Home Office," one of today's biggest explosions in the economy. The home-basedbusiness has been born out of necessity. In an era when large corporations always think ofdownsizing, what are your other choices?
Your choices are usually limited: find a lucrative niche in the small business world, stand in lineat Unemployment, or accept a cut in pay and benefits.In this economic climate, where cost-cutting measures are the group of the day, setting up a home office on your own may just bethe ticket to beat the odds. So now, to configure your own small office, home office set-up canbe a breeze.
How to Start
Let's congratulate on your decision to start your own business. But where do you go fromhere? Paper clips, memo pad, phone and table ?almost but not quite. One of the faultscommitted by home-based business owners otherwise known as a small office home office isthat they fail to consider the possibilities of expansion.
It is fine to start working from the kitchen table but what happens when things start to takeoff and you still do not want to have an office space? where do you place the home office? Ifyou have the space, I highly suggest a room unto itself. This permits you to close the door andseparate your personal life from business. You are able to leave everything you are working onright where it is instead of shaving to clean-up for dinner or to go to bed. These clean-upsteps can lead to problems down the road. where you anchor the home office is important foryour future success. A corner in the living room, bedroom or attic is preferable if you do nothave a room solely for your business. Reasons for the separation include fewer distractions andthe ability to think and focus more clearly.
And you may have to have one or two clients come to your "office" in the lifetime of yourbusiness. Even though it is your home, you want to present the best professional atmospherepossible, which is very important if you have people working with you. Their productivity isimportant to your bottom line. Invest in the appropriate chairs, tables, lighting and ventilationbefore you invest in the paper clips and the stapler. If you are not comfortable, neither you noryour employees will stay there and finish the job. Bottom line: Your employees don't want tointeract or become a part of your family issues. It is fine to have employees in your home butjust make sure you supply them with the best working atmosphere possible.
So, be a boss of your own and be a happy SOHO. Are You Ready?
You must study to be frank with the world:frankness is the child of honesty and courage. Say just what you mean to do, on every occasion. If a friend asks a favor, you should grant it, if it is reasonable; if not, tell him plainly why you cannot. You would wrong him and wrong yourself by equivocation of any kind.
Never do a wrong thing to make a friend or keep one. The man who requires you to do so is dearly purchased at a sacrifice. Deal kindly but firmly with all your classmates. You will find it the policy which wears best. Above all, do not appear to others what you are not.
If you have any fault to find with any one, tell him, not others, of what you complain. There is no more dangerous experiment than that of undertaking to do one thing before a man's face and another behind his back. We should say and do nothing to the injury of any one. It is not only a matter of principle, but also the path of peace and hornor.
By Robert E. Lee
When in an hour they crowded into a cab to go home， I strolled idly to my club. I was perhapsa little lonely， and it was with a touch of envy that I thought of the pleasant family life of whichI had had a glimpse. They seemed devoted to one another. They had little private jokes of theirown which， unintelligible to the outsider， amused them enormously. Perhaps CharlesStrickland was dull judged by a standard that demanded above all things verbal scintillation;but his intelligence was adequate to his surroundings， and that is a passport， not only toreasonable success， but still more to happiness. Mrs. Strickland was a charming woman，and she loved him. I pictured their lives， troubled by no untoward adventure， honest，decent， and， by reason of those two upstanding， pleasant children， so obviously destinedto carry on the normal traditions of their race and station， not without significance. They wouldgrow old insensibly; they would see their son and daughter come to years of reason， marry indue course —— the one a pretty girl， future mother of healthy children; the other ahandsome， manly fellow， obviously a soldier; and at last， prosperous in their dignifiedretirement， beloved by their descendants， after a happy， not unuseful life， in the fullness oftheir age they would sink into the grave.
——Excerpt from the Moon and Sixpennce by W. Somerset Maugham
Intense Light, a Wall as Well
A father is asking his son in grade three: ―We cannot find the star in the shady night. Is it not there?
His son answered it with clear –cut accent: ―No.
The father asked again: ―Then why we cannot see any star?
His son replied: ―The cloud hide them.
Again the father asked: ―There is no star in the sunny daytime. Where are they? Hesitated, his son seemed have no idea to respond.
For a moment, the father said: ―Actually there is yet stars but most of them are恒星,and stay in the universe. It is just we cannot see them with our eyes.
His son asked curiously: ―Why?
Thinking for a while, the father answered: ―Because the sunlight is too intense, and it shade the stars‘ light.
The same goes to many things in our lives. The intense light of one person or one thing, may not only shade its own defects, but also the merits of the person or thing around it and makes it difficult for others to identify the facts besides him. This is not the problem of one‘s eye, but the intense light.
Most cases, the intense light is a wall, a wall that cannot see and stride with our eyes. Not only can it confuse our normal eyes, but also hinder our normal sight.
