How To Find Time To Build Your Dream Business

You know your “why” and that you want to build your dream business. But launching a successful company takes time and dedication. So it’s no surprise that one of the most frequently asked questions we hear is, “How do you find the time to build your dream business when you’re already super busy?” 

We hear you. Whether you’re a mother with young children and a spouse who works 12-hour days or a doctor who pulls 36-hour shifts, you’re undoubtedly busy working or living your life, attending to various responsibilities.

Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Once you realize your dream business isn’t going to be built–or run–without some work on your part, you’re ready to take the next step: Finding real time in your day to work on that business.

How the Busiest Entrepreneurs Find Time

If you simply get up, go to work and engage in your usual daily routine, you’ll never see the results of a change. This is true whether you are trying to lose weight, learn a new skill or embark on a  business venture.

We’re all busy with our daily lives. But somehow the most successful people find the time to pursue new endeavors. And many aren’t independently wealthy or heiresses. So how do they do it?

Here are a few ways to find more time to build your dream business:

build your dream business

Wake up early or stay up late. Yes, this is the most obvious tip. Why is it on this list? Because it’s often the most difficult to implement! If you desperately want to lose 80 pounds, and your personal trainer tells you to wake up at 5 a.m. for spin class four days a week, you’ll find a way. The same principle applies to finding time for a new business.

Outsource help for daily tasks. Whether you’re working or not, you’re engaged in activities and chores that could be given to someone else. Perhaps you need help organizing your books, or cleaning your office or even doing laundry and grocery shopping. If there’s a household or business task taking hours away from revenue-generating activities, you need to outsource. Calculate how much your time is worth and compare that to the cost of paying someone else. If the task costs more for you to complete than someone you hire, you have your answer. This is why the gig economy exists. So no excuses, outsource.

Make cutbacks on non-essential activities and hobbies. Pursuing a new business requires sacrifices. Something has to give. While there are activities like exercising and family-time that you shouldn’t give up, everything on your schedule is not imperative. Do a little soul searching. Admit you don’t really enjoy that book club you joined. Accept that you don’t actually have to volunteer for every event at your child’s school–no matter how much they pressure you. Let go of activities that aren’t fulfilling, so you have more time for those that do.

Buy back your time. The best way to get more time is to buy back some of your time. Pay Yourself First to build your Freedom Generator. Get serious about your personal Financial Freedom, put your Security Buffer in place, and scale back where you can.

If you want a different outcome, do things differently. Find the time to pursue new ventures. And as you work on your dream business, be mindful of why you’re putting in the work. You want to be happy, Financially Free and personally fulfilled.
