To be successful at what you do, you need to spend time doing it. And if you are just about to start your online business, you should probably spend a little extra time. So what happens when you don’t have any extra time to spend?
Ok, look at what I am doing for a second. I am working at a university, I have a wife and two kids (3 years and 1 years old). On a good day (if you consider having time to online marketing a good day) I can probably spend about 1 1/2 hour to do marketing and updating my blog and everything else I should be doing online.
I have to be very organized if I should become anywhere near successful. If I didn’t think about what I should be doing with the 1 hour or 1 1/2 hour I can spend online before I actually sat down at my desk and started to click on my mouse, I wouldn’t get hardly any work done. So, I use a notbook (of real paper) where I write down my thoughts and when I get my hour, I know exactly what I am going to do.
I am hoping that one day, when my kids get a little older, I will have more time to do my online business and to develop my blog. But the most important thing to me, is that I love my familiy and it’s great to spend as much time with them as possible. So, what I am really doing now is getting closer and closer to something that I am going to be proud of online (and eventually I think that I will get there). But if you are in a hurry, you should probably spend more time online than what I am currently doing 🙂
How many hours a day are you online? I would love to hear your story.
