Working 7 Days a Week = More Freedom?

Jul 12, 2022

Do you dread Monday’s?

I did too until I learned an important lesson from my boyfriend!

When I started my first business back in 2007, I had been dating my boyfriend for 7 years and he owned a family service business that got calls 24/7.

At first, getting a call at 2am that you needed to respond to seemed like an annoyance, until I learned some important lessons and had a HUGE mindset shift in my business!

As someone who had no business experience, I was programmed to think that the dream work life balance was to work Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm with the nights and weekends off!  That’s what most of us think, until we become an entrepreneur!

And for some reason, we then see all these memes, “inspirational posts”, and quotes about working 24/7 as an entrepreneur vs slaving to a 9 – 5 job and begin to think that is what it takes to be successful!  MORE work than we were doing as an employee!

Until I learned this very important lesson that I am going to share with you today!

Each week I empower you with training and a free resource, based on successful strategies that I have used in one of my businesses!  I share my journey with you to help you fast track your growth without all the headaches! This week you can watch on demand my free training - The Legacy Business Blueprint Masterclass.  This training gives you The 3 Secrets (They Don’t Teach in Business School) You Must Master NOW If You Want to Build a Profitable Business While Still Having a Life!  Click below, to stream it your preferred device today!

 The first 3 years in business, I was a slave to it!  I worked 80+ hour weeks and built a great business, but I had no free time to enjoy the fruits of my labor!  I was frustrated because being the problem solver that I am, I could not figure out how to maintain our revenue without working less!

And I knew I was missing out on life because my boyfriend, who was also a business owner, was living his life to the fullest!  How in the heck was he making that happen???

The ONE major lesson he taught me was, if you ditch the traditional Monday-Friday 9am to 5pm mindset and shift to a “work when needed” mindset, you can have whatever work life balance you choose!

Hmmmm….How was I going to make this happen?

I started watching him more to see how he was making this happen so I could reclaim my life and get back to some freedom!  I mean I would have been happy just to shrink my hours from 80 to 60 at that point!

Today I am sharing with you the 3 important steps you need to take now in your business to reclaim your time and live your one life!

Step 1 – Shift your mindset!

This is going to be the hardest, so we are tackling this one first!  If you were an employee of a company for a long time, then you punched a clock and it got ingrained in you this was “normal”. Now it’s time to reset your brain, to dreaming about your ideal work life balance, writing down what that looks like, and having that become your sense of “normal”.  You are in charge of your one life and need to do whatever works best for you, your family and your dreams!

Step 2 – Delegate like a pro!

OMG this man is a master delegator!  He is so good at it that people don’t even realize what he is doing!  He uses his confidence, kindness, and charm to delegate all the things he does not want to do or is not good at!  As someone who been on the receiving end of this for 22 years, I can tell you he is the best I have ever seen!

Step 3 – Work as efficient as possible!

Working with him on projects can be a challenge if you are like me and like to be in charge and do things your way.  However, I must say, when I am able to put my ego aside and just listen to his directions, we get things done quicker and more efficient!  He already has the project completed in his head with all the steps before we even begin!  This is how you begin working smarter!  When you are starting a project, work through the process in your head, look for pitfalls, and ensure you have the necessary supplies!  This enables you to work efficiently and quickly so you can get more done in a shorter amount of time or have more time for fun things!

After watching my boyfriend work for 22 years, I can confidently say that if you can implement these 3 steps into your business, you will be able to work less and have more freedom, even if that means you are working 7 days a week!

Here is an example of how I have implemented this into my business.  I build my course and coaching business online, so each day after my morning routine, I spend one hour which I call my Daily Power Hour, networking, marketing, and making sales.  I do this 7 days a week, no matter if it’s a weekday, weekend, or holiday!  These 7 hours/week ensure that I am consistently working my business.  Also, if I choose to do nothing else the rest of the day in my business, I know that the most important tasks that move the needle are done, which allowed me to be free from guilt and stress.

In Summary, Shifting your mindset from working 5 days a week to 7 days a week may be a challenge at first, but it could actually allow you to work less!  If you use my business example that I just mentioned, I will rather work one hour/day 7 days/week, than dread Monday’s because I have been “off” for 2 days and who knows what has piled up in my Inboxes!  As always, I would encourage you to try this new technique for 90 days, to see if you can make it work for you!

And if you want to know what else I did to shift from those 80+ hour weeks to working part time, join me for my free masterclass training - The Legacy Business Blueprint!  This is a behind the scenes look into building a successful and profitable business that not only serves you but also makes the impact you want to share with the world!  These 3 secrets are the things they don’t teach in business school, or it seems online lately, so it’s a must watch if you want to have a business that supports your dream lifestyle and make a profit!  Click below to watch on demand!

And that’s a wrap on this week’s episode! Remember to live this one life you were given!

Life is a Journey and I am so glad you are on it with me!
