Working full-time and side hustling with your own business takes hard-work, motivation, passion and most importantly, time. So, how have I managed to keep my weekends free from day 1 of running my own business? Well, I’m about to tell you…
I just make it happen.
Simple as that. Okay, maybe not as simple as that. Let’s not forget about how side hustling takes hard-work. Basically, since the beginning, I’ve realized how important it is to have time off where I can recharge and start a new week with a fresh and motivated mind! In order to have my weekends off, that means I have to work extra hard throughout the week to conquer my to-do lists and make magic happen.
I want you to be able to have weekends off, too, because you freakin’ deserve it! So, I’m going to share some tips with you on how you can easily make it happen, just like I did.
1. Set aside time each day to work on your side hustle.
And when I say each day, I mean Monday through Friday only! Whether it be 15 minutes or 2 hours. Whatever you feel is a good amount and will allow you to complete your top priorities that week without burning yourself out.
2. Utilize your Sunday afternoon.
Yes, Sunday’s are all for relaxing and I know Sunday is technically a weekend day, but it’s smart to spend some time (literally 20 minutes will do) on this day to plan your week ahead. Trust me, it’s so much better to go into Monday morning knowing exactly what needs done and when it needs done versus starting your week all frantic, wasting time trying to figure out how your week is going to go.
3. Break up your to-do’s in groups of 5.
Why 5? Because there’s 5 days in a work week. And a massive to-do list versus 5 tiny to-do lists is way less stressful and way more manageable.
