How to Make the Most out of Your Part-Time Business

You are venturing into the world of entrepreneurship and starting it as a part-time business basis.

I get it. You are probably dreaming of having a successful full-time business, right? The time freedom, the ability to say ‘yes when your child asks you for something or being able to travel the world!

I believe you will get there if you want it bad enough and are ready to put in the work. This blog will give you some tips to help you make the most out of the already limited-time you have.

How to Make the Most out of Your Part-Time Business

 

Make your Business a Priority

 

If your goal is to make the most out of your part-time business and eventually take it full-time, you HAVE to work on it every day. Creating a priory list can be helpful here. Of course, your family and job can take precedence. I understand that, of course! But your business needs to rank higher than a movie night out or hanging out at the beach all day. It can be a tough transition, although short-term pain for long-term gain (or so the saying goes)

The activities you love don’t need to go away forever. Instead, you can occasionally build them into your day if your business is served first.

Schedule your Time

 

Everyone speaks about time management, but very few follow through. Sit down with a calendar or create your own, and schedule the 24 hours in your day. Be sure to include necessities like eating, sleeping, commuting to work, etc. When you have a detailed picture of where each hour (or half-hour time block) is spent, you may just come up with some extra time you didn’t realize you had.

Grow your Support Circle

 

Your support circle can include enlisting your children or spouse to help you with essential home and business tasks. But, first, you must have conversations with them about why you are working so hard and, in turn, sacrificing some things here and there. Our children love getting involved, and once they understood the WHY, the HOW became much more manageable.

For those who have some extra income through their growing part-time business, perhaps hiring a VA (virtual assistant) to handle administrative tasks for you could also be an option.

Once you have outlined your time blocks in the tip above, you will have a simpler time outlining which tasks can be ‘outsourced’ and which ones are still served best by you.

Evaluate Constantly and Tweak When Necessary

 

Entrepreneurs must learn to evaluate effectively and make necessary changes quickly. When you have a pulse on what is working and what isn’t, your business will thrive as a result. Scrap it and map out a new plan if something isn’t working. A great way of determining where to evaluate is to map out your long-term and short-term goals and then work backwards.

Your short-term goals compounded should serve your long-term plan. When we become super clear on those goals, mapping out priorities, to-do lists, and schedules these things should start to become seamless.

If I do X, then Y will happen. If it doesn’t, time to tweak.

Places to evaluate can include (but are not limited to);

  1. ROI (return on investment)
  2. Social Media engagement
  3. Follow-up Conversations
  4. Number of new Relationships 
  5. Sales Copy or Sales Calls

 

Determine what your list will look like this, of course, depends on your industry and your goals) but be prepared to evaluate every 14-30 days. Some strategies will require a bit more time to settle in, and I’m happy to chat with you about your business if you need some guidance along the way.

Overall, I want to see you make the most out of your part-time business and that it continues (or starts) to serve your life the way you’ve envisioned it too!
