On Managing Your Time Effectively After You Take Your Side-Hustle Full-Time
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.
