Often with more freedom, comes less structure.

Because solo business owners have no corporate structure to fall back on, they need to create their own structure for their office organization.

For some people that’s easy, for others it’s the bugbear of their soloist career.

But there is an answer: take small, simple and regular steps to increase your levels of organization.

1. Dedicate ten minutes per day to de-cluttering.

2. Keep a bin where you open the mail and immediately discard irrelevant paperwork.

3. Know how long you need to keep each document.

4. Keep archive or older files away from active or ‘to do’ files.

5. Make friends with your office. Set it up so you love going into it.
