It's a new day & a new week, ladies! Whether you're headed off to a job you hate or working on growing your business full-time, here's today's actionable challenge:
Focus only on money-making tasks.
Do you know exactly what moves you forward in your business, and are you working on THOSE exact money-making tasks every day?
Do you know how to attract clients or customers right now? If you’ve had paying clients before, how did you get them in the past?
Or, instead, are you feeling overwhelmed by trying to do something you heard from one expert and another strategy you heard from someone else you follow, and then finding yourself sitting down at the computer (when you do finally carve out some time) and feeling so scattered that you wind up scrolling through Facebook instead?
There’s a lot of busy work that feels necessary but is not directly money-making.
Keep yourself focused on your actual money-making tasks, and let those be enough while you’re building your business on the side, or you’ll waste a lot of your precious time “working on your business” but not moving forward in your number one goal of replacing your income.
Let go of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), feeling like you need to be everywhere and do everything, and focus solely instead on money-making tasks.
If you don’t know what your money-making tasks are, start by identifying them.
For example, did you connect with paying clients....
✅In a Facebook group?
✅From a personal post you shared?
✅Through a referral?
✅Via your newsletter?
✅Through an interview or article you wrote?
Reflect on what brought you your customers or warmest leads, and focus on doing THAT again today!
This strategy will serve you well even when you’re out of your 9–5, because even when your time is freed up, the more focused you are, the faster you can grow your business.
And, if you don’t yet know what those tasks are, make it a priority to figure them out ASAP, so that you can use your limited time wisely and efficiently.
