When I look back to when I first started out in my online business several years ago, I was one hot mess! I thought I had it so under control but just taking one look at my working hours would tell a different story. I easily worked 12 to 14 hours a day, six days a week. I told myself it was because I was building a business.
Really? Who was not being honest with herself at that point?
But that wasn't the whole of it. I neglected pretty much everything else in my life but my business. I stumbled out of bed to my office and then I'd stumble from my office back to bed, most days. Luckily, I have a husband who picked up A LOT of slack around the house and meal chores!
I was out of control. I spent almost every waking hour working! I woke up one morning at 5 AM tired, grumpy, and wondering if I'd made the right choice to be an entrepreneur. I was second-guessing myself, not because I didn't have work but because I had SO MUCH work. I was working about 60+ hours directly with clients. The rest of my time I spent trying to build my business further. Organization, processes, and time management was out the window!
It was on that day that I decided to use my knowledge of managing time -- you know that thing that I taught others how to do -- to my advantage. I had to start running my day and stop my day from running me ragged!
