I Just Don’t Have The Time!

Millions of successful entrepreneurs started their business during their spare time. However, more often than not, someone will say:  “I’d like to, but I just don’t have the time”?

Here are some facts.  There are 168 hours in the average week. Where do folks spend all that time?  Take a look at the following chart:

You can either spend those 30 hours of “spare time” on entertainment or use them to pursue your dream.

Kicking The Entertainment Habit

You know there are two types of people out there.  The “3%” who are wealthy, and the “97%” who work for the “3%

• The “97%” spend their “spare time” on entertainment.

• The “3%”  spent most of their “spare time” building a business.

This is the great divide between the haves and the have-nots.

According to studies, the average person now spends over 5 hours a day on entertainment. Entertainment doesn’t always have to be television, it can be scrolling through Facebook on your smart phone, binge watching multiple episodes of a show on a tablet, watching sports, playing videos games, etc.

That’s not to say you shouldn’t enjoy any entertainment, but do so in moderation. Entertainment shouldn’t eat up nearly a third of your waking hours each day.

Don’t do that.

How much is the “entertainment habit” costing you? $10,000 a year? $100,000 a year? A million a year? More? What if kicking the entertainment habit could put you in a financial situation that allowed you to pursue those dreams you have.  Maybe you’re into photography, and would like to take one of those exotic photography vacations.  Maybe you’d just like to take a regular vacation 2-3 times a year without having to worry about your job duties.  Perhaps you’d like to volunteer for Habitat For Humanity, or donate time for the local animal shelter.

Break the “entertainment habit”, work hard for 2-4 years, and your life will be yours once again!

A Part-Time Business In Your “Spare Time”

Fact is, if you want to be dramatically change your situation,  you’ll probably have to start a part-time business. You don’t have to quit your job right away; in fact, you probably shouldn’t. One of the best ways to minimize your risk is to keep your full-time job while you start building your business during your “spare time.”

Work hard for 2-4 years, and your life will be yours once again!

As Jim Rohn would often say, “Work full-time on your job and part-time on your fortune because profits lead to fortune.

Do that.

Then you can say, “Right now I’m working part-time on my future and full-time on my job”,  but it won’t be long until you can say “My part-time business did so well that I was able to quit my full-time job.  Now I spend all my time doing the things I dream about”.  Can you imagine what life is going to be like?”

Buy Back Your Time

Once your business creates a passive income, you can then “buy back your time.”  No more will you have to sell your time to some employer in order to pay the bills.  No more will you have to endure having someone else tell you when you can take that vacation, how long that vacation can last, and how many times a year you can take it.  No longer will your boss control how much you earn, how much of a raise or bonus you’ll get at year’s end.  Nor more will others by virtue of how much they pay you, be able to dictate in what neighborhood you can live, which determines what schools your kids can attend.

Passive income” is an income received on a regular basis, with little effort required to maintain it.  Are you on that dream vacation?   With passive income you keep getting paid like any other normal day. 

What does “buy back your time” mean? It means the weekly passive income created from your business more than covers the income you were earning by working for someone else. The passive income literally ‘buys back’ all those job hours for you. Since your business earns you a passive income, you no longer need to trade your time for money.

Turn “Free” Time Into “Freedom” Time!

Most people say they have “no time” to pursue their dreams. Yet, most people spend about 5 hours a day of their “free time” on entertainment.

Some people use that “free time” to start a part-time business. Eventually, when their business allows them to quit their job, their 40 hours of job time become 40 business-building hours. And over time, by leveraging their business into a passive income, they replace their ‘business-building’ hours with an extra 40 “free time” hours! Combined with their existing 30 “free time” hours, they now have a total of 70 “freedom” hours every week!

Freedom Time: When you have both the time and the money to live your dream life.

With a passive-income business, your 168 hours every week could look like this:

How Are You Spending Your “Spare” Time

We all have the same 24 hours each day.  Beyoncé, Richard Branson, Oprah, Les Brown, along with every successful entrepreneur all have the same 24 hours each day. It’s your choice how you spend your “spare time.” Choose wisely. No Excuses!

IMAGINE! If all your “work time” became “free time,” what’s one of the first things you would do? How would your life change?

Work hard for 2-4 years, and your life will be yours once again!
