In a conversation with one of my reps it was brought to my attention that all my discussions on the time needed to work your Avon business had been falling on deaf ears. WHen my representative heard from a Senior Executive Unit Leader that she was working 40 hours a week, my rep was amazed that I had been saying that TOO. Based on what I had seen, I was NOT totally surprised! I have been involved in time management for many years, but I am learning new things every day about the benefits that good time management brings.
Any entrepeneur, whether it is Avon or something else, should know that you spend a huge amount of time to get where you want to be. Any new business needs your time and attention to grow.
However, how do you balance your leisure time with the time for your business? I have found this to be an issue a lot especially lately. I have prided myself on being available 7 days a week, but it is summer and I have things I want to do that do not involve my business.
So the question is: How to do both? I am finding that setting my goals and working on them every day with lists in hand Monday through Friday are helping me find week-ends a little more free for things not business related. I am actually accomplishing more than I had before and much less stressed about what I am not getting done.
The old adage “If you want something done, ask a busy person” certainly holds true in my opinion. However, as an entrepeneur, you must learn to balance your growing business with your leisure time by setting those goals, and breaking them into the bite size pieces.
If you do what you need to do, when you need to do it, there will come a time when you will be able to do what you want to do, WHEN you want to do it.
