This podcast episode a game-changer for anyone looking to build their freelance dreams. We’ve all been there – the frustration, the endless to-dos, the feeling that time is just slipping away. But guess what? You’ve got this, and I’m here to guide you through the process of finding time for your freelance dreams!
The Myth of “No Time”
Let’s address the elephant in the room – the infamous “I don’t have time” dilemma. You’re not alone in feeling this way, especially when the responsibilities of life pile up. But here’s the truth… it’s not about the time you lack, but how you use the time you have!
Choose Your Hard
Starting a freelance business is a journey, and like any journey, it comes with choices. You can either choose the “hard” of maintaining your current situation or the “hard” of building your business alongside it. It’s a conscious choice that only you can make. Trust me, there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and I’m here to show you the way!
Finding Pockets of Time
So, HOW did I manage to start my business in a whirlwind of responsibilities? I audited my daily schedule and looked for pockets of time that I could dedicate to my freelance goals. Those early morning hours before everyone wakes up? Perfect!
The Power of Routine
Routine was my secret weapon! By committing to work two hours each morning before my usual schedule kicked in, I found consistency. And guess what? Consistency is the key to progress. Those hours stacked up – five days a week, 20 hours dedicated solely to building my business.
Embracing the Seasons
Think of your life in seasons! I knew that this intense phase of extra effort wouldn’t last forever. It was a season of hustle that would eventually lead to a more balanced and flexible future. So, even when it feels overwhelming, remind yourself that it’s a temporary phase that’s paving the way for a brighter tomorrow.
Set Your Support
Remember, you’re not alone in this journey! Communication is key, whether it’s negotiating with your spouse for extra support, seeking help from friends, or even trading off responsibilities with fellow moms. Building your freelance business isn’t just your dream – it’s a shared goal.
Flexibility as a Reward
As you build your business and start seeing results, your schedule can adapt. It’s a beautiful feeling when you realize that the flexibility you’ve earned allows you to rearrange your time and tasks to better suit your goals and responsibilities.
