Building An Online Business? Make Your Weekends Really Count
I couldn’t tell you how many times I was looked at as “odd” or “lame” for choosing to stay in on weekends when most of my peers were going out to the bars, drinking, partying etc.
What they didn’t realize is that while they were out blowing money, eating crappy food and being hungover the next day, I was straight up hustling on all levels.
That’s right…I was reading, researching, learning, saving money, working on my online business and creating options in my life.
Now of course you have to have fun once in a while, but it’s important to realize if you’re building an online business and you work during the week, you must make your weekends count…big-time!
This means waking up at 5:30-6:00AM on a Saturday/Sunday morning to write a blog post, record a YouTube video, build a new website, or whatever it is that you’re working on.
Think this is crazy?
Well I did this for years and years (and continue to do so)…Especially because early morning is the best time to get some serious work done.
In fact, a 10-14 hour work day on the weekends is very common for me (and I love it).
You can’t afford not to adopt this type of schedule if you’re building an online business.
I’ve come to the realization that not everyone has the hustle, motivation or entrepreneurial drive in them to make this happen and that’s okay.
But those of you who do want something more out of life than your current situation, it’s time to turn your weekends into your slave.
When you find yourself grinding when everyone else is out having fun, you know you’re on the right track.
This may sound depressing to some of you, but if you want to build an online business and have an extra stream of income you have to work your butt off…simple as that.
My Challenge To You Is…
So my challenge to anyone reading this that feels that they’ve been wasting precious time on weekends that they could instead put into building their online business is to START NOW!
This Saturday and Sunday, set your alarm for 6:00AM at the very latest.
Do not make any plans and dedicate the entire day to working on your dream.
Create a to do list that you will complete for the day, with the biggest tasks first on the list.
Dedicate yourself to this lifestyle to the best of your ability over the next few months and eventually years.
Be intentional with the time you spend on your work, follow a proven plan and ride the wave.
You may be surprised by just how much you can accomplish…
What’s great about building an online business is that it can be done just on the weekends to start, until you gain more momentum and free up some more time for yourself.
As cliche as it sounds, it really comes down to how bad you want to succeed and more importantly the dreaded word for so many people…SACRIFICE.
What are you willing to sacrifice in order to build your business to the top?
For me this was simple to answer…
No more late nights/late mornings, no more partying, wasting money, eating bad food, relaxing or lounging etc…
It’s time to turn weekends into your greatest asset.
I’d love to hear what you think about this.
Are you currently utilizing your weekends in the most efficient way to build your online business?
What does your average weekend schedule look like right now?
Is their room for improvement?
