A lot of people enter the “make money online” industry due to various reasons:
- Hate their jobs
- Want a change in life
- Change of circumstances (eg. Disability causing loss of ability to work)
- Living paycheck to paycheck
I am sure the list goes on and on.
In fact, I do know some people want an ‘easier’ life – a life that they have better control on when to work and when not to work. The good news is that running an online business does give you the ability to achieve a better work-life balance. Simply follow these 3 simple steps below.
Step 1 – Set Boundaries
I suppose you are looking into running online business because you don’t want to work long hours. At least this would possibly be one of your reasons.
Let’s say you have a family and you want to spend more time with them, maybe at least 3 hours per night. Then the secret is to set boundaries with your time. That’s the first step.
Within these 3 hours, you should not check your phone, your laptop, your tablet – you just don’t want to think about business.
What you need to do is to have very clear boundaries on your time. Eg. From 5pm to 8pm, that’s your time where you have all business-related activities switched off. Turn off your phone, your tablet, your computer. All of them.
If someone tries to reach out to you, then tell him / her, “I am sorry, but this is not a good time to talk about this. Please call me back later.”
Step 2 – Leverage Your Time
If you want to be successful in your online business, and get the most out of your precious time, you need to focus on high-leverage activities.
You need to fill your time with productive work, not busy work.
If you are spending your time on the right activities, eg. Crafting sales presentations, building sales funnels, placing ads effectively etc., you are spending your time on work that will bring you revenue.
If you are spending your time viewing training videos, that’s not high leverage. A good rule of thumb is for every hour of training you have gone through, spend 5 times the amount of time on implementing what you have learned.
You just need to make sure you are spending your time on high-leverage activities.
Step 3 – Build Your Team
At some point, you will need to start building your team. You want to hire people to perform the lower paid activities, by paying a small amount of money.
If you save 1 hour on some bookkeeping, you gained 1 hour where you can do some work to bring you cash. This is how the calculation is done.
When you have limited number of hours per day, it is important to focus on the activities that will bring you cash – ie. sales and marketing.
However, many entrepreneurs fall into the trap of working long hours trying to do everything by themselves. They think that would save them money. But it won’t.
You need to focus on cash-producing activities and then start to build a team, so that you can hand off some lower-paid activities to other people. That will free up your time so you can focus on activities that can earn cash.
If you make a plan to set boundaries, leverage your time, and build your team, you will have many more opportunities for rest and relaxation, and spend more time with your loved ones.
