No time as of before again!
That’s when you’d feel like cursing the moment that business startup idea came. What the hell of stress could I have dabbled myself into now! Gosh!
Yea! You started the online business from this idea but the time ain’t that there no more…
Everyone would go through this.
And just like a snake creeping a mount with no impact, you feel depressed – to have wasted your precious energy and money to rate and start your business.
Because there’s no more much time again.
What if I tell you that all online and offline entrepreneurs face similar issue? You ain’t the only Thomas doubting if startup would ever be successful. Because of lesser time.
You might even have a job requiring that you spend 12 hours according to the company rules… This won’t make you feel pleased to handle your business effectively but there’s a solution.
You will face this difficult moment, especially when money depletes.
Below are the secret hacks which I use.
They will make you more effective in your business even when you don’t have much time.
Create a Schedule
It’s simple. Take a pen and a notebook you can easily refer to daily. Calculate how many hours you’ll use busy with other important things sucking time. Amidst the daily twenty-four hours, plan with it at least 3 hours you’d dedicate to your business.
This can be either first thing when you wake up in the morning, last thing you’d do at night, or even in the mid-day when you’re sure you have the time.
You know why this works? There’s no time in our day-to-day activities. There’s only the time we create.
So, CREATE THE TIME IF TIME SEEMS NOT EXISTING
But as you manufacture this time, include a while for a daily relaxation and intense fun!
Make Your Schedule Public
Announce to your followers and readers, customers and clients how you have scheduled your daily work time and how it can benefit them the more.
You solve a problem and they’ll feel glad to have you inspire, entertain or help them right? Yes! And it makes you fearful of going against your own words.
Rebuke Time Wasters
You’re not left out! I am not also(if so)!
Many useless activities fill out our daily lives even when you and I still complain of no time. Do you notice we easily create time for fun?
Stuffs which don’t help you get more traffic to your blog, more customers to your business must be done away with. A perfect instance is Facebook feeds.
Well! It’s fun when you glance through them, but most times, we get depressed from established entrepreneurs’ useless brags of photos, thanking God for what he’s done in his life! Is God living in Fb? Is the question. But this won’t help you, but only get you depressed!
Facebook as it is can help you grow your business/blog if you do it the right way
. In fact, what I see helpful are the sponsored posts that even connect me.
We have several time wasters apart from the Social Media saga. But what you can apply in measuring out what wastes your time, is when you engage in acts that are irrelevant. In fact, sleep and relaxation is more relevant than stressing yourself out to hangout every time.
Bro! I also have fun.
I ain’t saying you shouldn’t have fun but you have something more important doing.
Cut Your Expenses (and expand your means)
Don’t live below your means. But spend in a way that will make you impaired to have time for your business.
See! Discouragement happens due to hundreds of factors – money deficit is one of the key-factors. That’s when you’d say, “you want me to continue when I don’t even have enough money to push through?”
You’re changing your habits to create more time for your business now.
Apart from the fact that it’s hard to change habits, when you don’t have enough finance to keep yourself fired up, you’ll be losing your vibes to change your habits to create more time for your business.
Make a weekly Review
You’d need a weekly estimate of how many visitors you had to your website, how many conversions you had from your customers, how much sales you made, how many times contacted top competitors in your niche and how they added to your orientation.
The magic behind this is that, you’ll fire up yourself for the next coming week. Your subconscious state would be set to influence your conscious stature and you will become more effective in your business, no matter how hectic time is.
Will you start making a weekly review?
Mind Your Own Business
If you’re a student or employee who started up a business and looking forward to be a boss, you need to mind your own business.
I’m not talking about snubbing people’s help on the streets or helping them clean some chair dusts! What I’m saying is – be conscious of what you are and don’t let anything intrude your goal.
For instance, your assignments and projects as a student must be done in a way that won’t interfere with the goals of your business. You can’t meet this without putting in mind your business. Your job must not cancel the love and passion you dedicate for your business. You can’t achieve this if you don’t put in mind your business.
Be sensitive not to relegate the respect you have for your business for any thing by putting in mind what you operate.
Nevertheless, I don’t say you should fail your exams. I don’t mean you shouldn’t impress your employer.
You just have to be conscious to constantly put in your mind your own business and let nothing interfere with your business plans and objectives. You can even discuss with your boss on how to partner with his company in a way that will help your business if it can be possible.
That philosophy will manufacture more than enough time for your business.
Time management is one of the top requirements if you want success in your business. You need to create more time no matter how busy you are and by these, I can guarantee you!
