How to Start a Side Business With Little Time
I hear people say it all the time…
“I really want to start something but I just don’t have the time!”
While many people who say this aren’t lying, there’s always a way around things.
However, it will require sacrifice in some area of your life.
If you can’t sacrifice, you can’t succeed.
The key is to sit down and ask yourself “Where can I sacrifice a little?”
Can you give up that TV show?
Can you spend less time on social media?
Take the following into consideration:
If you “free up” just one a hour a day to work on a side business, you’re looking at 28 hours worth of work, monthly.
You might not explode your business with 28 hours of work, but trust me when I say you’ll get a lot done!
Take that one hour and turn it into two.
Now you’re looking at 56 hours, monthly.
I don’t care who you are, how much you know, and what you want to achieve.
If you spend 56 hours on anything, month after month, you will succeed!
What Do You Sacrifice
You can sacrifice something you currently do as a hobby or for enjoyment.
…but maybe that’s not an option.
You might be someone who simply doesn’t have any time leftover in their day.
When faced with this situation, you only one option left.
…and it’s not one that many people will be fond of.
You must get up earlier!
Yes, it’s sucks.
There’s no other word for it.
However, if you’re really motivated to start a side business, you have to be tough on yourself.
Getting up earlier is more mental than anything.
Sure, when that alarm goes off, it feels like not even a house fire could get you out of bed.
Look at it this way though:
Remember a time when you over slept?
How quickly did you jump out of bed?
Because you were motivated by urgency and fear!
It’s the same thing when waking up earlier to work on a business.
You have to have that urgency, desire, and necessity to succeed.
Start the coffee machine and work for an hour on your business venture.
After a month, move it up to two hours.
As soon as you start seeing how much work you’re getting done, you’re confidence and motivation will go through the roof!
It becomes addicting.
You’ll hate going to sleep at night and look forward to getting up in the morning.
….and once you start seeing profit, there’s no turning back!
Words of Wisdom
You can’t sit there and feel bad, complain, and wish you had a side business.
You have to take action!
People believe that it’s not worth taking action without time, skills, and resources to start a business.
They go about it the wrong way.
One day you might be able to dedicate three hours, other days only 30 minutes.
Do what you can, daily.
The amount of time you dedicate will determine how long it’ll take to get there.
…but whether it takes a month, six months, or two years…
YOU WILL GET THERE!
If I start building a house and lay just one brick daily, consistently, eventually I’ll have a house.
If I lay two bricks daily instead, I’ll get there quicker.
However, no matter what option I choose, I will get there, regardless.
…As long as I do as much as I can, daily.
