The number one reason I love my business is time…having time for tennis in the mornings and sometimes evenings…having time to take yesterday morning off to celebrate birthdays with girlfriends…
It’s not that I work a 4 Hour Work Week like Tim Ferriss suggests we do. I put in my 40 plus some extra to read and learn. But it’s also the quality of the hours.
I spend my time reading, writing and researching, and then teaching what I know to others. I don’t spend my time doing things I don’t like to do, like cold calling, network meetings with people I don’t know, or trying to sell to people I don’t know.
The reason I’m so lucky is that I recognized early on that my time is precious and valuable. I decided that If I could be smart about marketing, then people would call me and I wouldn’t have to go out and find them and call them.
Most of the time that’s how it works. And the reason for that is because Denise and I have good branding as The Blog Squad, and we are passionate about blogging and marketing.
My question to you readers is how can you be smart about structuring
your work so you do the parts you love and do well, and delegate the
other parts you don’t do well or don’t like to do?
Of course, one thing you could do is join us for our Branding and Blogging workshop
which starts today. It includes audio files, handouts, individual
consulting and working with you on finding your brand and promoting it
Seriously, you could start loving your life and work a whole lot
less and be able to enjoy your time, every precious hour and minute.
