This might be the most important question a home-based business owner should ask themselves, “Should I Set Hours to Work My Home-Based Business?”
yet one that many never ask…
and not asking hinders success and even worse can hurt the relationships with those we love the most…
our family. And this is sad because for many of us, our families are our why!
We started our home-based business to have more money and more time to spend on and with those we love the most.
Is that you? Or, is that anyone you know who is building a network marketing business?
In today’s post, I’m going to share a simple and clear plan for scheduling time to work your business… even if you work a full-time job and/or have a family that’s super busy!
Be sure and share this with your team!
Times to Schedule
- Times You Will NEVER Work Your Business
- Times You Will ALWAYS Work Your Business
- Times You Will SOMETIMES Work Your Business
And as always, I’ve created you a really cool freebie you can download below that will help make scheduling your three different times super simple!
Be sure and grab a copy of it below.
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
~ Benjamin Franklin
Times You Will NEVER Work Your Business
These are times that you have little to no control over.
Examples might be when you are working your job, Sundays, Friday night date night or 6 – 7 in the evenings during family dinner. Maybe you have a Bible study or a Yoga Class you attend weekly.
These are things on your calendar that are set times and activities you are committed to.
Times You Will ALWAYS Work Your Business
These are times you will commit to getting your income producing activities done.
The good thing about Network Marketing, when done the right way… you only need 8 – 10 hours a week!
This is when you will invite people to take a look, follow-up, help your new team members get started and do 3-way calls or messages with them and their prospects.
Times You Will SOMETIMES Work Your Business
These are the times you will be able to get in some ‘extra’ work time, if it works out.
Think of these times as bonus time!
Examples might be while you are waiting to pick up your children from school or an after school activity.
Maybe your spouse has a hobby your don’t participate in and when they are busy doing that… maybe this is a time you can work, if needed.
For me, my husband loves his Sunday afternoon naps and watching NASCAR.
That’s a time I work ahead on on scheduling social media postings, preparing broadcast emails, preparing team trainings, etc.
In my experience, what get’s scheduled, gets done!
And I don’t know about you but my goals and my dreams are much too important to be left to chance.
It’s my hope that you feel that way about your goals and dreams, too!
