On the Make Episode 37 - On managing your time effectively after you take your side-hustle full-time

Becky started her business as a side-hustle after making some candles with her daughter and falling in love with the whole process. She’s recently taken her side-hustle full-time (hooray)! Today we’re chatting about how to find a routine and manage your time once you take your side-hustle full time and are faced with this unusual expanse of time for working on your business.

We talk about managing your time effectively once you take your side-hustle full-time, how creating some artificial deadline can help to keep you motivated and how to hit the balance between working on your business and working in it. We also cover giving yourself permission to slow down and throw the 9-5 rulebook out of the window.

IN THIS EPISODE WE COVER

  • Managing the balance between working on your business and working in your business

  • Creating structure in your day to help boost productivity and keep you focussed

  • Knowing when your power hour is and how your energy ebbs and flows throughout the day

  • Understanding which tasks require your full focus and which tasks can be done when you don’t have so much focus

  • Time-blocking in your calendar/ diary to make time for the important tasks in the week

  • Artificially limiting your time if you’re motivated by deadlines

  • Creating a regular routine to make doing the ‘CEO work’ easier

  • Creating focus areas in your business to make sure you’re working on the CEO work as well as working in your business.
