Creating a Time Schedule for Your Business

time for business
As you venture into starting a self owned business, the truth of the matter is that you probably are still working somewhere outside your home for someone else. Depending on how many hours a week this job takes from you, not to mention the time spent commuting back and forth to work, you can be left with very few hours to devote to your own business venture, much less the energy.
That's where some solid time management skills will have to come in.
You will need to find the little pockets of time left over amongst the duties of your busy life in order to sufficiently attend to the duties that come along with having a home business. One way to do this is by creating a daily and weekly schedule of tasks for both your daily life's tasks and your business, and sticking to it.
Here are some things you need to consider when creating your schedule. Read more...

- hours spent at your other job
- travel time related to that job
- household duties and daily/weekly errands
- how much time it takes to complete all your errands and tasks
- tasks involved with your business venture
- family/social commitments
- time for maintaining body and health
- adequate time for rest and rejuvenation

Those who are in a solo business venture, or even those with a partner or partners will sometimes feel as if it's almost impossible to keep all the balls juggling in the air sufficiently. You will almost always be able to find one area where you are slacking a bit.
When it comes to this, a firm handle on time management plays a key role. Plot your tasks out by the day, week and month, and try to get a set, solid routine that you can and will adhere to. Even on days when you feel that you don't have the energy, make it your business to try to get all your tasks done.
Establishing and sticking to this habit will be most helpful in the success of balancing both your business and your personal life, and neither will have to suffer.
