My Biggest Tip for Entrepreneurs Starting Their Journey
Hi friends! I was thinking about something earlier while I was rocking my sweet 11 month old to sleep and I wanted to share it with you.
I am often asked what my tips are for entrepreneurs just beginning their journey in owning a small business. That is a big question because it seems like every season I am learning something new. But, I think implementing this one thing has helped me so much, I just had to share with you in the hopes it might help you too.
A couple of years ago, I began being extremely intentional about my time. I chose to never waste a moment doing something that wasn't productive (hear me out on my definition of productive). Even if I was sitting down to watch a movie, it became intentional. I love movies and find a lot of relaxation in watching them, so I believe watching a movie can be productive because relaxation is a must! An area that I have had to be super duper intentional about is social media. I personally choose to not let myself lose an hour scrolling facebook or instagram. I do use social media for my business and I love it--when I hop on facebook or instagram, I have a goal in mind whether it's to post something or to scroll with the intention of seeing what our customers (and my friends!) are up to that day.
It it crazy the amount of work I can get done when I am being intentional about my time. I owe a lot of my business growth to simply being intentional about time. When I am working, I am working very hard but when it's time to play with my baby boy and husband, my intention is being present and having fun with them. It's simply a balance.
Hope you found this the slightest bit helpful.
