Seven Tips to Make the Time to Build Your Business

1) Clearly layout on paper what is most important for your business by what makes the most money for your business. Then focus on those items over other items that might take more time but do not produce results. This is the 80/20 rule that we have all heard about.

2) With the remaining items that did not make the top 20% most important items, you will have to decide if you should minimize the times, delegate the items, or delete them all together. If you determine that a task is important but not worth the time that you spend on it, look for outsourcing services that can handle the task at a reduced wage.

Three Lessons Learned Starting a Business

Lesson One: The Power of Your Peer Group

Bring this thought home in every way you can for it is sufficient unto itself to open the door to success in the higher brackets of individual achievement."

Hidden in Carnegie's words and example is the real edge that allows some people to out-earn others by a factor of 10,000 to 1. When you have the right peer group around you... supporting you... encouraging you... challenging you... inspiring you... and holding you accountable... then anything becomes possible.

Never has such a display of hype been presented in the name of entertainment since Geraldo Rivera embarrassed himself in front of the world when he discovered two bottles of liquor in a vault in Chicago.
