Etsy Shop - Managing your time 101 - Part One

  • Are you struggling to find time to do everything?

  • Do you feel overwhelmed by it?

  • Do you think the day does not have enough hours?

Well, you will be surprised how a little organization will take you a long way. Actually, managing your time is not rocket science, it is simple if you have a process. So let's get started:

The first thing to do is be realistic with your time, sit down and write down the hours that you will be dedicating to your shop. Do not cheat, be absolutely honest with yourself. After you are done with this step, you should have a list like this:

Monday - 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM - 5 hours

Tuesday - 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM - 5 hours

Wednesday - 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM - 5 hours

Thursday - 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM - 5 hours

Friday - 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM - 5 hours

Saturday - FREE

Sunday - 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM - 5 hours

Total hours: 30 hours

So far so good. Now think again, are you willing to commit to those hours? If not, adjust it until you have something reasonable.

When you are done, do a happy dance! First step is completed.

Tomorrow, I will be posting Step Two.

Stay tune!
