How many times have we all said, “If only I had more time then I could get more done in my online business?” The solution is not getting more time – we all have the same amount. The key is to manage the time we do have and make it work more effectively for us.
Even if you think you don’t have time to take on anything else, you might be surprised to discover how much time you’re actually wasting during the day. You can start making money from home whether you hold down a full time job or not.
Sometimes when it comes to starting a business, many people have the mental picture that it’s all or nothing – that in order to be their own boss, they have to take the plunge, quit their day job and put all of their effort into building an online business.
I remember feeling this way… I had a real problem with feeling as if my “JOB” got in the way of my progress.
I also had a husband that didn’t want me to quit my “real” job. He was concerned that our life style – and ability to make the house payment – would suffer.
He is always the voice of reason in our house. I’m the dreamer – he is the one who keeps me somewhat grounded.
If you have a day job that pays the bills and provides you with health benefits, keep the job while you work on launching and growing your business part time.
You can get up an hour earlier in the mornings to work on your business.
You can spend your lunch hour working on the business.
Since your job will be online, you’ll be able to access it anywhere. If you commute to work via train or other method where someone else is in charge of driving, you can work on it then, too.
You can also temporarily give up the hours you used to spend sitting in front of the television.
You can give up one hour of sleep at night to work on the business and work two weekends a month.
I’ve had times when I don’t get much sleep – for weeks on end. And I don’t miss all the TV shows I used to watch… It’s more important for me to spend that time focused on my future.
If you work around your day job and stick with it, you can steadily increase your income with the online business until you can comfortably afford to let go of the job you now have.
Let’s suppose you’re in a position now where you can no longer wait to leave your day job – it’s become unbearable, the stress is going to wreak too much havoc, or there’s something to cause you abandon your current career now. Or… you find you are without a job (like my hubby when IBM forced him to retire early).
Suddenly, you find yourself having the same forty plus hours you gave at the office to work on your online business. Don’t waste that time… If you work on your online business only when you feel like it, you could lose valuable momentum. Let the excitement of your new business drive you and propel you forward.
When you can start working your online business full time, you’ll be able to devote your full attention the business needs to continually grow. Rather than squeezing it into the schedule, you’ll have the time you need.
It’s not so much about finding the time as it is taking the time and if you’ve always wanted to start your own online business, there’s no better time than this moment. Today will soon be yesterday and you won’t ever get that opportunity back.
I’m just not going to feel sorry for anyone who says they don’t have the time for making money online. No Way! I won’t let anyone convince me that’s ever true.
Sounds more like an excuse to me.
Remember – I’m here for ya…
