In this article, I will deviate a bit. What does fixing up a broken house have to do with building a business? Well, for those of us who have home-based businesses, it would be a great idea to go through this contributed article and see if the suggestion might come in handy.

Let’s face it, a house is a place where you house your possessions and for some small businesses, this means their trusty laptop, printer, telephone, internet router as well as other electrical gadgets needed to run their business. So, yes, electricity is a factor to pay attention as when it goes or gets compromised, it can and will also affect your business needs. Read more.

A home is never complete, and it’s definitely never perfect. The more time we spend in a home, the more we realize that things could actually be falling apart at the seams. From a blown fuse causing the lights in the kitchen to not work to wallpaper that’s peeling away in the bedroom.

They’re issues that we tend to ignore for as long as possible, and by ignoring them, we don’t notice them. It is crucial when it comes to fixing up a broken house. But if you think of all of the issues within your home, how many can you actually think of?

It might be worrying for you to think about them, but we’ve got a few quick fixes that you can make to a broken home. Have a read on to find out more.

Electrical Problems

Electrical problems are the bane of any homeowner. They don’t happen often, but when they do they can cause many problems, both affecting money and the quality of life within a home. When they do come around, deal with them as quickly and as swiftly as possible rather than ignoring them.

For example, if you have a whole kitchen with lights out like we said in the opening paragraph, you need to contact a lighting maintenance company as soon as you can. The longer you leave it, the more problems it’s going to cause for you.

You also need to think that trying to solve something electrical yourself could only end up worse. You might end up hurting yourself for one, especially if you forget to turn the electrics off at the mains when dealing with the problem. You’ll also run the risk of wiring it up wrong and make an even bigger mess than before.

Just always leave electrical things to the experts, unless it’s something simple like changing a lightbulb.

Fix That Shoddy Decor

If you’ve got decor that’s really winding you up, all you need to do is find a way to fix it up and change it to how you want it to be. After a few years, the quality is going to age, and you are going to notice peeling bits of wallpaper or paint that looks a completely different color to what it once was. Spend a day choosing a new design.

Heating Problems

Heating problems are something we all experience. If you feel as though you’re spending a ton of money on your heating, you may need to consider getting your windows replaced. It’s a costly job, but one that’s going to save you money in the long run.

Plus, it’ll help to keep you nice and toasty during the night. If you feel as though it’s just your heating not working, always get the help of a professional rather than attempting it yourself.

Yes, fixing up a broken house – is good for business, in more ways than one!

    I like the way you focus on do what you can but know where you need help like electrical. When building on an line business there is so much you can do for yourself but other areas where the support and knowledge of others can make all the difference.

      Hello there Steven,
      Thanks for visiting. You are so right, there are times when we will need professional help and others where you can indeed do-it-yourself. You have to know where your strength or expertise lies. Much success in your venture.

    Hi Michelle, I really liked the way you use the analogy of a home to a small business.
    You are right when you say that these two actually resemble – I have always said that being a home keeper is being a CEO of your family & your life, being the Chief Executive Officer of everything in the house, the grocery shopping, the maintenance manager, the psychologist, the doctor, the cleaner, the chef, the laundry person…did I miss something..ah yes, the chauffeur!
    In a very similar way, our business needs all these functions too to maintain and advance the business to success.
    Thanks for this reminder.

      Hey there Orion,
      LOL. Thanks for visiting. Yes, I love your analogy – we all seem to wear so many different hats – don’t we? And yes, our business allows us to do the same as well. Much success in your business.
