Do I Have Time to Start a Home Business?

I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking that you need to make more money, you’re thinking that you need to find a secondary income, you’re thinking that you need a way, a plan B a just-in-case a fallback plan. I know exactly what you’re thinking because I was thinking those same exact things. You’re also thinking but I’m already really busy, I have a full-time job or I’m a full-time mom.

You may have noticed that it seems like everybody’s got a little side hustle going on these days, everybody’s got something that they’re doing on the side and that’s a clue to the fact that what we’ve been doing traditionally just it’s not working anymore. The simple fact is, times are different and we need to do more to get ahead, to pay off debt, to have things that we need or want. If you’re anything like me, I made good money but my debt far out exceeded what I was making and I just couldn’t figure out how to get ahead. If you feel like that, or if you’ve ever felt like that, then maybe you’re thinking I just need to work harder, I just need to work more, I just need to sleep less and learn how to multitask better. I wish I had an opportunity like I have now I wish I knew about something like an online business back then because I would have been able to work a lot smarter and less hours and make more of an income.
I’m here to tell you today that yes home businesses do work but only if you do them right. Most people fail at home-based businesses because of two things; lack of belief in themselves and lack of scheduling and just not knowing how to find the time. So today I want to cover for you a couple tips before you even take that leap of faith before you even jump and decide to sign on the bottom line and join a home-based business. I want to help you figure out if this something that’s feasible for you. The first thing I want you to do is to figure how much time do you spend every day watching television, figure out how much out how much time you spend each day just kind of surfing social media or going through your news feed. All those little things that may be taking some time away from you where you can potentially find power pockets of time to use to create your future.
When I was first building my home business, what I did was I used lunchtime and I used my drive time to build my business. Figure out where you can possibly fit in increments of time.
I’ve been a stay-at-home mom because of the success that I had with my home business. I’ve been able to be a stay-at-home and work my business in the pockets of time I have. A lot of times I would work from my phone, with home based businesses this is typically were a lot of work happens. We all have become masters at using our smartphones so this is a no brainer.
Second thing I’m going to recommend is to figure out what you can give up for the next two years, what can you sacrifice for the next two years in order to get ahead. When I train my team, when I bring them on, one of the things I say is how many hours per week are you willing to find, are you willing to carve out of your schedule to set you up for success. I am not saying to cut everything fun out of your life, but figure out what is going to be your business building time. What you need to figure out is what you could be doing in the time you have to push yourself farther. For me, instead of listening to music on the exercise bike or on the treadmill or in the car I was either making phone calls, doing personal development or listening to business training audios. I wanted to build this empire, so the pockets of time that I found or was willing to sacrifice for the time being contribute to my future and to where I am now. I had this dream I wanted to get out of debt and wanted to build this empire. So that’s tip number two: was to figure out okay what can I put on hold just for a while.
