How do you build a business while managing a full-time job, a social life, and a needy boyfriend? (sorry, babe)
You take advice like from smart people like Michael E Gerber’s E-myth:
“Work ON your business, not IN your business”- Michael E. Gerber
So what does that mean?
See, the biggest reason why people hesitate on building a business that they love is:
A) They don’t have time or;
B) They don’t have money
So when you feel like you ‘don’t have enough’ you quit before you even get started. You feel afraid to start because it seems like you won’t have the (wo)manpower to get it all done.
But when you set up automated systems in your business that sell for you even when you’re at work, sleeping, or running errands then you create more of the thing you thought you didn’t have.
So how can you create more time, and more money while you’re hustling?
Systems, systems, systems.
We live in this amazing time where we have access to the internet where we can sell to people ALL over the globe (one of my latest clients is in Korea!)
We live in a world where you can communicate with people who are your PERFECT customers just by scrolling through your instagram feed.
So what you want to do is be the visionary for your company, figure out the master plan for your business, and then create systems that work hard to get you the results you need, saving you time, and making you more money.
That’s how you leave your 9-5 job with savings in your account, and a sustainable business model that you can scale.
What To Do When You Don’t Have Enough Time To Grow Your Business:
Step 1: Create a product that offers GREAT value that you’re able to systemize the sales of.
If you’re offering a service in your business like:
Social Media Manager
You’re likely finding that you don’t have enough time in your day to do it all. If this is the case, it’s a great idea to add a product to your roster that can sell even when you’re not in front of your computer or talking to a client
And guess what- When you can sell a product that doesn’t take you any additional time to sell, and you’re able to make money when you’re not in front of your computer, you create MORE time and MORE money for yourself.
*Every solopreneurs dream*
My first digital product I sold was my social media calendars that opened my eyes to making money even when I wasn’t working.
But you don’t have to create a social media calendar like me to create passive income. You can create workbooks, planners, scheduling tools.
You can even sell physical products like t-shirts and mugs but offload your products into fulfillment centres that will pack up, package and ship of your products so you can run your business hands-free.
So now that you KNOW some of the options for digital products, you need to get eyes on them!
Step 2: Create automated systems that constantly drive traffic to your site.
Create a online presence + content that drives traffic to your site + digital products and helps your ideal customers see their value and why they should buy.
You should know who your target audience is, and where they hang out online so you can get your *amazing* products in front of them.
Once you know how to drive traffic, you can set up automations that can help you automate your Pinterest posts, or automate your tweets!
If this is your dream client you’re selling to, you should know exactly where they are spending their time online so you can make sure you’re right there with them!
Step 3: Sell products that are digital (or affiliate products) so you can see money coming into your accounts without lifting a finger.
Now it’s selling time. If you’ve set up your website to sell for you, a lot of the groundwork will be done when a potential client gets to your website.
Make sure you’re putting a lot of energy into creating sensational content + copy so your new customers can see why they should buy your product and how it can help them.
Test and scale your processes to see your sales increase and watch new customers come to your website, sign up for your email list, and purchase from you even when you’re not in front of your computer!
