Many entrepreneurs fail to get started in business because they feel they lack key resources such as money and time.
On Monday I talked about how to start a business with no money through freelancing. Today, I’d like to help you overcome another hurdle. So, let’s talk about how to start a business with no time.
Don’t tell me there isn’t enough time...
Now, be sure to brace yourself, because I am going to first get out my soapbox about people who claim they don’t have any time to build a business.
The fact is that you are full of it. You are making excuses.
I have been building side hustle businesses for years during my "free-time". That free-time was normally really early in the morning, while most people are sleeping, or late at night while most people are watching TV, gaming, etc.
Was it a grind at times? You bet. Has it finally paid off? You bet.
The truth is that if you want it bad enough you will find the time. I am not proposing you take away time from family, friends, etc. Nor do you have to give up all of your time for hobbies. The good news for me was that over time, as I had more successes, I came to enjoy building my businesses so much that I would rather spend my free-time doing that than participating in other hobbies. Maybe that will happen to you as well.
Another way to start a business with no time
There are some people who time becomes a real hurdle for when starting a business. In those cases, I suggest they overcome how to start a business with no time through outsourcing tasks to other freelancers.
Yes, outsourcing tasks to other freelancers might cost you some money. But it may not be as much as you think and doing so might make sense.
For example, let’s say your business provides editing services. Maybe it is better for you to spend your limited time winning business and having a team of other freelancers that actually do the editing work. If their work is of good enough quality and you are able to negotiate their work at lower fees than you bill your clients for then time becomes less of an issue and you still have a profit.
What are some other ways you can overcome a limited amount of time to focus on your business?
