You don’t have enough time and as much as you’d like to pretend otherwise, you can’t keep up with it all and it’s starting to take its toll.
Which really sucks because you love your work but you have to be there for your family first and foremost.
So how do you make more time?
Two things you can do are outsource and/or get smarter with what you’re doing now.
If you can’t outsource, 3 things you can do to be smarter with the time you have now are:
1- Automate: Using things like Zapier, IFTTT, Tailwind and the built in scheduler on Facebook for your page and group means that you can set up in advance a lot of what needs to be done and then you can focus on other things while they happen in the background. Creating email automations in advance is also a great way to not only make sales but to direct new sign ups to your list to where you want them to go (e.g. your group, Instagram, a sales page),
2- Recycle & reuse: Keep track of all the content you write, that way when you’re struggling for inspiration you can go back through and use the content again as is or update and refresh it. Not only will it save you time but it’ll also help to keep your message clear by saying the same kind of thing again (that’s what a niche is all about),
3- Repurpose: if you want something new to use as a freebie to grow your email list or a tripwire, an online course etc. take a look at what you already have. Is there a video you’ve posted in your group that you could create a workbook for and package up as something new? Do you have several worksheets on the same topic that you could put together and create an eBook with or a mini course?
Using what you have and taking advantage of even the quickest automations will free up more time in the long run. If you save just 5 minutes a day that’s just over 30 hours a year.
