6. Unplug the distractions
Turn off the television. Don’t get sucked into puttering around on Facebook or Twitter for hours. Time really is money for you now.  Get to work and pay your bills! Your checks are no longer guaranteed.  You can’t afford to procrastinate.

    This helps a ton! I'll be opening my own jewelry shop in the spring of next year. I never thought about how much all the supplies would cost including shipping.

    This advice is seriously on point!!!!! So many people fail to realize that being a freelancer means that in addition to the work you did at your old job, you are now also a receptionist, book keeper, human resources rep (you have no idea how much they battle with insurance companies for you!), boss, sales rep, marketing exec, and so much more! Being your own boss is liberating but not in the ways that most people think.

    I've worked for myself my entire adult life and I must say, this article is spot on. I cannot stress how important putting work clothes on and actually getting out of the house are. Very good read Demetria; possibly your best yet.
