4 Strategies You Can Use to Build Momentum for Home
Business Right Away
Be honest with yourself. Are you one of those people who
believe that you just don’t have the time to get your home
business up and running? You’re not alone. Many people I
talk to claim they have too much to do and not enough time
to do it. They wind up defeating themselves and their
business looses momentum and suffers.
Full time jobs, family obligations, maintaining health
and to many other distractions are the main reasons for
not building momentum for their business. You can wind
up feeling that your life is spent catering to every one
However, I have some good news! You can find and maximize
time to build momentum for your home business. All you
need is to find time and commit to use that time for your
home business only. Try the following strategies to make
your home based business flourish.
Document Your Daily Routine
The first thing you will need to do find a quiet place
and write down your schedule. Document the start and end
time on events like getting ready for work, driving your
kids to school, your commute to your day job, gym time
and any other weekly commitments you have. Don’t forget to
include weekends and family time, this is most important.
After completing this exercise you should have a good
visual of what your work week looks like. You should see
openings in your week. Make your goal easy, try to find
two hours you can commit to spend on your business. You
should be able to re-prioritize some time.
Stay with the Schedule You Created and Re-Evaluate
The next thing you need to do is stick with your
schedule. This can be tough because you are creating a
new habit. Once you get the hang of your new routine, you
should always re-evaluate your schedule. You may be able
to find more time to spend on your home business.
Sticking with your schedule means you need to discipline
yourself to work. This means that you have to find a way
after work, after little league games, after dinner and
after putting the kids to bed.
Don’t Forget Your Family.
Spending time with my family is always a top priority for
me. When I had young children, I focused on my business
when my kids were in bed. I find that using the evening
hours is best for me to spend on my home business. It
seems to be the most quite part of the day.
If you have to use your family time to spend on your
business, make sure you communicate with your family so
they have an expectation of what you are doing. However,
I would recommend that you set a time limit so you can
spend that time you want with your family. This will
provide balance for you.
As we all know life also throws us off schedule. Try your
best to embrace that fact instead of fighting it. If your
child stays up late, focus on helping your child quiet
down and go to sleep. Try not to focus on what you could
be doing. Don’t worry. The work will still be there when
you are ready.
If you have to stay late at your day job, then choose to
work late. Usually, you’ll find that it is better just to
focus on one thing at a time. You’ll be more efficient and
effective. Having a clear and guilt free mind while
working on your business is most productive.
To handle new ideas that can distract you while you are
working, keep an MP3 Recorder handy so if an idea comes
up you can record it or write down the idea in a
notebook. You can always prioritize those thoughts at a
later time. You will also find that you are using less
energy dealing with distractions instead of fighting
So there is good news when it comes to finding time to
work on your own business. Don’t despair and don’t get
frustrated. Just remember that you have total control of
your time and you alone can change your habits to build
your businesses momentum.
