Time management strategies are key to entrepreneurial success. Discipline and consistency trump talent when trying to grow a business.

When you adopt these time management strategies, you will work less and achieve more. Who doesn’t want that when trying to grow a business

Time management strategies that work to build your business in 8 to 10 hours a week

Eight hours a week equates to 416 hours a year. That is a lot of time to accomplish what you want to do. Set very specific business hours to work on your business. This needs to be non-negotiable. Holly used 6 to 7:30 each morning to work on her business.

You can accomplish a lot in a short amount of time, but if you need more time, choose a longer block of time for a strategy session, for example, 6 to 8 on Saturday morning.

Set business hours but also incorporate strategic time to focus on the bigger picture.

Take at least two hours a week and map out what’s working, what’s not working, and what you are going to change to reach your goals.

In addition, use 1 hour a week on Sunday, to plan for the week ahead.

When you have little time, create theme days so that you can focus your time and accomplish the most possible.

For example, every Monday is the day for creating content, and every Wednesday is the time for podcasting. You can also have a specific day for client calls.

To build your business in under 10 hours a week adopt these time management strategies: set business hours, have a weekly strategy session, have a planning session, and establish theme days.

Making your business a family business

Ask what your family members want to do and what they are interested in. Then let them help you with tasks you don’t want to do or that they can do better.

When you adopt time management strategies you can build your business without the hustle of social media

It’s important to use social media to your advantage, but not to build your business on it.

Social media is not a business strategy, but a tool to use for marketing. The most beneficial thing you can do is build your foundation and always direct traffic to a platform you own, a podcast, email marketing, or a website. Social media can go away in a minute, therefore you have to have a plan B. SEO and Pinterest are great tools for improving long-term opportunities.

You don’t have to have the sense of hustle and rush to build a successful business.
