How do i balance my 9-5 and my start up business at the same time? I know I can do both I just don't know exactly how to find the balance.
My business is very small but it has great great potential. I am providing a relaxer free and harmful chemical free service to clients. Right now I work a city job 4days on 3 days off. On my off days i promote my business and try to gain 1 new client a week on those off days. the problem is some times i feel like i am still not doing enough to see the revenues start flowing into the business. I am creating somewhat of a niche market within the market of beauty. One issue I have is sometimes i feel nervous about when will be the time to leave my 9-5. how long? Second issue is being loyal and feeling overwhelmed about knowing how to leave a 9-5.
Hi, first congratulations on starting your own business. When I started my business I also had a day job and worked on my startup nights and weekends. I think it can be a great way to get a startup off the ground and make sure you have enough traction before giving up your income stream. That said, it can be overwhelming. I found the key to being successful is setting priorities. Set your long-, mid- and short-term goals and then identify the highest priorities tasks. Stay focused, stay focused, stay focused. You have limited time and resources and need to make sure you spend your time wisely. Good luck.
Surround yourself with great people with a passion as strong as you. For me, having interns around to do some of the lifting while I am at my 8-5 have helps me and my business grow. http://www.braatheenterprises.com/internships
