I think it’s fair to say we are all guilty of spewing the ole, “I don’t have time for that,” line, especially when being asked to do something we don’t want to do. But from time to time, I have to evaluate what I am doing that leaves me with such little time. For instance, I told hubby I didn’t have time to put the laundry away, I was just swamped. However, as I replay the day in my head I recall scrolling FB for quite some time after making my necessary calls and texts in the morning….
I hear people constantly saying they need extra money, but when I approach them with my fabulous opportunity the most used rejection is, “I don’t have time for that.” Those same people continue to complain about their financial situation while also posting on FB how they binge watched three seasons of their new favorite show in two days and send me requests for extra lives on games I didn’t even know existed. I get it, those games are addictive and that is exactly why I don’t play them! I have folks say they don’t have time for a skincare regimen. Well, it takes all of a minute to wipe your makeup off with our wipes and another minute to throw on some moisturizer but hey, if you want to deal with the deep wrinkles later because you didn’t want to head to bed a few minutes early, that’s ok, we have a cream for that, too!
I began my business while I was working a FT job and my kids were one and five. Yes, I had to fit it into an already hectic schedule, but at the time we needed a little extra for bills so I made it work. Over time, the business turned into something so much more for me. It became an opportunity to not only be home with my children, but continue to contribute to my household financially. Eventually, with some planning, scheduling, and lots of great people along the way I left that job. Now, do not mistake the term “work from home” as “chilling at the crib”. I still have to work, I just get to do it when I want. And when I say work I mean talk on the phone with friends while collecting their orders or chatting with a new team member about how they can earn some extra or make a plan to be home with their children. So, next time you are about to complain about your situation, stop and think about how many hours you spend on TV, FB, or the worst…Pintrest…If you have 5-10 hours a week, you have time to build a business.
