Create a logo for your business. Streamline your website and social media graphics and profile photos to up your game and make your efforts look more professional. There are plenty of ways to make your own logo online, but if making graphics is not one of the skills you already have, try having one created for you.

When I started my business, I chose a name that reflected my business personality. I wanted to show my positive personality and help people easily remember me. So, The Brightest Side was a reflection of how I see the world. I am a glass more than half full kind of person, I like to see the best. For my logo, I chose to use a sunflower because they are the most positive flower I know. They always look to the sun and to me that is a perfect inspiration as I grow my business.

2. Market like a business


Put your logo or business name on a t-shirt, a pen, or send a holiday card to all of your clients or potential clients. Networking and marketing with a more professional and streamlined plan will change your client’s perception of how you are conducting business.

3. Organize your home office

Get yourself organized and you will feel more professional. If you have a video call or a visitor, you will appear more professional and clients will notice when you have an organized work space. Try using a wall mount organizer at eye level to make your office supplies easily accessible. Spending a little time each day to tidy up and organize your supplies will let you start the next day with less stress and clutter. With the right organization tools, that will be easy.

4. Keep your technology up to date and ready to go

Try a device charging station so you will always be ready with a full battery for a business call with a client or to run out to a spontaneous business meeting. Tame those cords and make your office a more functional space. Also, make sure your printer is operational and always filled with ink and paper. It’s good to keep an extra ream of paper and a couple extra cartridges of ink on hand just in case!

5. Pick the right planner to keep you organized

Whether you like a more structured planner or you are a free form type of professional, a calendar and appointment system that works for you could be the most important thing you buy for your business.
