Do you ever feel overwhelmed?
With so much to do you don’t know where to start?
Especially if you have a day job AND you want to get your online business going!
I feel for you, I really do.
Last weekend I made a momentous decision, one that could potentially save me hundreds of $$ a month.
But it came with it’s own price.
A lot of extra work.
And I mean a LOT of extra work.
I’m actually trying to get to the point where I don’t have to do any day to day work in my business beyond writing a daily email and helping members in Clicks & Leads Academy.
I have pressing things to do. I want to start entering writing competitions to hone my skills and I want to write my first sci-fi book before the good weather arrives, so I can go down the beach every afternoon. In order to write creative fiction, I need a clear desk and a clear head, and this huge decision was going to clutter up both!
There were other, more emotional, factors about making that decision, which I’ll go into another time perhaps.
But once the decision was made, I just had to crack on, but how to decide what to do first. There were so many jobs that needed doing all at once or my websites wouldn’t work, my leads would stop opting in and worst of all, new members wouldn’t be able to join!
So I made a cuppa, took a deep breath and I went back to my “7 Habits Of Highly Effective People” book by Stephen Covey.
Then I listed out the tasks that needed to be done, then took a fresh sheet of paper and created four boxes – the four Quadrants created by Stephen in his book.
By concentrating on the Important and Urgent, then the Important but not Urgent, I got most of the tasks squared away over the weekend.
I got some help too, with some of the more techie stuff. Not my strength anymore.
By paying my sister Sarah for a few hours work to help me, I was able to save over $200 a month in premium hosting that I no longer needed.
A small one off investment to save over $24,000 in my business over the next ten years.
(Thanks to Clicks & Leads Academy member Irene Conlin for giving me that little yardstick on how to measure if a cost saving is worth making!)
Over the weekend, I actually managed to save my business over $600 a month.
Or $72,000 over the next 10 years.
Or enough to pay my rent, bills and buy my food every month, in Greece!
So the work was worth it, and I was able to get it done
