You’re creative, and you have a lot of good ideas. The balance of being a entrepreneur means managing your time and letting your business work for you. If you’re strung out and stressed all the time, then you’re working for your business and not letting it work for you. You don’t want to create another job for yourself. You want to create time freedom and the opportunity to do what you love. When I created yes supply, a platform for female entrepreneurs and female empowerment, I knew I wanted to create a business around the lifestyle I wanted to live sharing content that was inspirational and helpful for new entrepreneurs.
Having the right processes in place and the right time management is key in having a business you love.
Time Management For Bossbabes
Create Time For Money Generating Activities
It’s really important to have a solid idea of your money goals for the month, and ensure that you are making time for generating that income. Money is often a taboo topic, but when you think about it, you need money to grow your business so don’t be afraid of it.
Think about it, if you want to bring in $4000 a month, and work 8 hours a day, then you should be doing money-making activities such as improving your product and promoting them. If you’re not, there’s no reason for people to buy, they won’t even know which products you sell, and you may come to realize that your dream business is an expensive hobby!
Don’t make the mistake of treating your business like a hobby by posting whatever feels good that day. You should have an editorial planner so you can strategize at a high-level the content you are putting out, think ahead and know how you will be communicating with your clients and how that impacts their purchasing decisions.
You want to ensure you have content that nurtures your customers, helps them learn more about you, and helps them understand why the products and services you sell are going to be helpful in their life and why they should buy.
This will help you get an idea of how much time you have in the day to complete important tasks, and ensure that what you are putting out for your brand is on point so you can truly connect to your customers. Last minute stressing over your content is not a good reflection of your brand, and is not fun for you as a bossbabe.
Focus Your Time On The Things That Make The Biggest Impact
This is the biggest tip for time management. Try to ‘cut the fat’ of your daily tasks, and focus on the ones that make the biggest impact for you. If you’re trying to do a ton of things at once, you’ll find that you get burnt out trying to get it all done, but you might not be reaching your goals.
Try to ‘cut the fat’ of your daily tasks, and focus on the ones that make the biggest impact for you.
Often 20% of your tasks, make up for 80% of your sales, so figure out what those are, and make sure you’re optimizing your processes so you’re saving time but seeing the results you want!
