We only "have time" for the things we prioritize. This is actually a topic that I am very passionate about. Let me share with you how I have FOUND time even with 4 kiddos.
Guess what? You don’t have to give up everything in your life to build a thriving doTERRA business! In this video I will show you how I am using my 15-20 hours a week to keep my business booming!
Let me tell you when I WAS NOT successful: It’s when I didn’t have an action plan for managing my time.
Make sure you have a goal set. Is it an income that you want to make? A rank you want to hit? If you don’t know where you are going with this, you’re not going to get very far. It’s hard to drive to an unknown destination. Set your goals and figure out where you are headed.
Is this a hobby or is this a business? Are you taking this business seriously or is it just a hobby for you? Hobbies will give you a check here or there. If you want to replace your income and bring your husband home from his job, you need to treat this like a business.
Set your office hours. Decide to set your office hours when there are the least amount of distractions. If you have small children—maybe that’s before the kids wake up or after they got to bed at night. How about nap times? Pre-school times? Set those hours when it makes sense for you, but also consider that you need to be meeting new people, meeting up with people, and training your team.
Plan out your week. For me, this happens on Sunday evening. I put in all my the playdates, doctor appointments, and meet-ups with people, etc.. This ties right into #3, time blocking your hours is awesome. When will you do wellness consults? When will you get all your samples ready for the month? How about mentoring calls? I usually look for 1-3 hour blocks.
Hire support. My support has evolved with my company. When I first started doing this, I would trade babysitting with a friend. I found a neighbor lady who was willing to watch my little for $3 an hour. I can work more focused and efficient hours when I have help. Also, put a movie on for your kids! Guess what? It doesn’t have to all be directly related to your business. For example, hire someone to mow your lawn! It will free up time for you to work or spend more time with your kids. When your business starts rocking, do what you are good at and hire out the rest!
Self care. This is a wellness company. If you are not the face of wellness, it’s going to be hard for you to build your business. If you’re constantly exhausted, people are not going to be attracted to what you are selling. Be confident and take care of yourself! Create a list of things that bring your joy—taking a bath, eating a bowl of ice cream, making some bath salts.
What tips are YOU using to use your time wisely! I’m always looking for new ideas to improve myself.
