You are a busy entrepreneur or small business owner. You are either wearing all the hats in your business or at least trying to. You are either working full time in your business or you are still currently employed while treating your business as the side chick. What’s important to know is the same time, effort, and energy you give your job should transfer over to your business. Why? Well, it’s because your business is your baby. If you are still employed your job can take care of the bills and fund your business but on the other hand, being employed prevents you from focusing on your business the way you should whether you are at the starting or growing phase. Your goal is to eventually quit your full-time job or jobs but you are waiting for your business to magically grow so you can quit right?
The challenge with that is in order for you to quit your job(s) someday you must invest in your business, commit to it, and market your business. All of this requires time and energy on your part or else consider delegation which is another great word for outsourcing. You are always saying “I don’t have time” or struggling to fit in business tasks throughout the day but do you say this when you’re working a job? You probably spend eight hours a day making someone else rich or wealthy not including travel time. It’s possible to squeeze in time for your business on a job. If you are in a position where you can quit your job and survive consider getting support such as a marketing consultant, coach, and marketing team along with others who can save you time and money in the long run. Doing it all on your own is a big mistake but in some cases, you have to do it. Today your biggest time challenge or time management challenge can be solved if you take fast action.
I have always been an ambitious person who believed in myself. I knew someday I would be in a management role because it was my gift. I understood business and marketing so well and love all things content creation. On my last job I was in a promoted teaching position and as much as I love teaching I was starting to get stressed out. I had a classroom with at least twenty five almost thirty students. I was so good that students who had behavior issues principals would request that I take additional students that other teachers could not handle or discipline. My workload was high because of the demand of students, lesson planning, and home. On top of that, I was working two jobs.
I won’t bore you with all the details but as you can see below my schedule was hectic and stressful throughout the day. I had to squeeze in so much such as homework and promoting on social media which isn’t included below. Whenever I could squeeze time into my schedule to work on my passion or personal activities I made the sacrifice.
* I would go to church on Wednesday and Friday nights around 7 PM to 10 PM depending upon my work schedule. I ran my classes basically with little to no help. I would make time to work out sometimes LOL and didn’t mention that on some nights I would be working my teaching job and other marketing jobs until ten at night.
The purpose of this blog post is to show that it’s possible to commit to building a business. One summer I got fed up because of the particular position I was in there was no summer pay. I finally made the decision to walk away from what I loved doing and put my skills to the test. Before I left my job I already had marketing clients and the rest has been history. I was also suffering from medical conditions that sometimes required me to leave early from work once or twice a week and then come back to finish working or relieve my sub. My students would be so sad and they loved cutting up a little bit when I was gone because Ms. Davis wasn’t having it especially when I’m present LOL. The workload and wanting to spend more time at home with my family and health made me make a decision to resign. I have such a diverse work history that has taught me so much and I apply what I’ve learned to my business today. I got to a place where I couldn’t take it anymore. I wanted more from life and to be in control over my time and finances. I didn’t like being underpaid for my hard efforts and then my health suffering at that. I took back control over my life and by being a marketing consultant I’m helping other women do the same.
