One thing I have learned with being married for 25 years, you need to have priorities in your life and my marriage is one of them. It takes time, effort and sacrifice to build a marriage that lasts. It is the same in your business.
How high of a priority is your business in your life? Do you book it like you would a job? Do you treat it like you would if you had a boss over you that could fire you?
If you want to build a business that gives you the financial success that you want, then you must be willing to pay the price for it.
I know that it can be hard when you work from home. There are so many distractions that can get in your way, so many things tempting you away from the things that bring true success.
The reality is that you do have enough time for your business, even part time, if you only work on the things that will produce results. We all have time wasters, things we do that take up long periods of time and give you nothing in return.

Then take this challenge. For the next 3 days, I want you to log everything you do in a day and how long you took doing it. After you have done that I want you to add up all the time you spent where you produced no results.
Now if you are a Mom with small children, then taking care of them is a big result and not a time waster.
Not sure what a time waster is? Check out my list and add them up?
-Social Media (not including posting for business or direct prospecting)
-Games (on your computer, online or on your phone)
– Reading (non business related books)
-Personal grooming (Anything over 1/2 hour a day, add to time wasters)
How many hours over the three days did you spend? Was it minutes or hours? Once you get into hours, you now know where the time is to build your business properly.
It is a matter of deciding what you want more, you time wasters or success. Truly successful people, know how to prioritize their time and only do what is need to get them where they want to be.
In the next blog post, we are going to look at what are the most important activities in your business that will get you the results that you want.
