Finding time for your home business

You might say I am too busy for a home business; I have no time for an extra job. Think carefully, maybe You have 2-3 hours of spare time in the evening in which you would like to do a part time job or maybe if you are like me, you have a habit of sleeping late. Maybe you have a habit of getting up early in the morning and can spare an hour or so in the morning. You can use this time to build up your new business. It is better if you are consistent in your activities, that is spending one hour daily on your home business is better than working 10-12 hours a single day and then not working on it at all for 5-6 days. If you are steady in you efforts, no matter if you are slow, you will surely win the race of achieving financial freedom. A good idea would be to start your home business about your existing job, spending an hour or so everyday gradually building up your business and once it grows, you can leave your present job and devote your self entirely to your new job.
Maybe you are retired and short of money, you don’t want to indulge in too much physical activity and want a work at home job, which can be easily moulded around your existing schedule. Below is an example to show you how this can be easily done, without too much exertion on your part.
7:00 am: wake up
7:30-8:30- morning walk, taking the dog for a walk in the garden.
8:30-10:00 am: breakfast, reading newspaper
10:00 am-11:00 am-reading your favourite book
12:00-1:00 pm: spending time on your new business
1:00-2:00 pm: afternoon lunch
2:00-4:00 pm- afternoon nap
4:00- 5:00 pm- evening tea/ evening walk
5:00-7:00 pm – spending time with family/ friends
7:00-:900 pm- spending time on your new business
9:00-11:00 pm- dinner and watch television
11:00 pm – go to sleep.
See you can easily fit 2-3 hours everyday in your existing schedule and as your commitment towards your business grows or as you want to increase your commission checks, you can increase your efforts and time according. As you learn skills of your trade, you can utilize various techniques to automate your business and thus saving a lot of your time. If you don’t want to spend money on these automation tools, you can also hire a few people (number depending upon the jobs to be done), say a writer to write articles for you. Ultimately it all comes to a single thing where there is a will there is way’. If you are really keen on starting your new business and obtaining financial independence then nothing can come in your way. Also it may take some effort in the beginning; first year of your business is the toughest and might give you no or very little profit. You might even run into a loss, but the key is not to give up, success will come but in it’s own due time. Once your business is set up, you don’t have to put in much effort.
Start your business around your present job. The beauty of doing an online business is that can be done part –time maneuvering your schedule around your existing job. It is not important how much time you invest everyday, more important is that you invest some time everyday, even if it is just half an hour. Consistence and persistence on your part will help you go a long way and help you achieve your goals even before you realize. As Woody Allen has put it ‘Eighty percent of success is showing up’.
The beauty of the program like SFI is such that you are provided with a residual income and leverage income, which keeps on coming, even when you stop working all together.
