If you’ve ever worked on a giant jigsaw puzzle, you know you always have to start on the borders. Finding those corner pieces is key because you need to figure out how big the puzzle truly is. It gives you a nice border and solid foundation.
From there, you start trying to group like pieces together. They could be grouped by colors or names across the puzzle. You might start working on part of the puzzle outside of your border before putting it all together.
It takes a lot of time, patience and determination to finish a puzzle. There are plenty of times when you’ll look at yourself wondering why you’ve decided to put together a 1000 piece puzzle of the world.
Starting a business is a lot like completing a puzzle. First, you’ll want to build up your foundation with your business idea, draft a business plan and perhaps look for investors. You can start to see the pieces of the puzzle forming, the framework of a beautiful painting about to be completed.

So building and growing a business is just like building a puzzle, if your little brother kept throwing a tennis ball at you and your chair was on fire.
One of the ways to make your puzzle building a bit smoother is to start the process from home or better yet, continuing working from home. Working from home has plenty of advantages and disadvantages, but building a business from home is a fantastic place to start.
