3 Ways to be More Productive in your Direct Sales Business
Ready to learn how to be more productive, balance your time and work your business smarter? These tips will help you whether you work a full-time job and your direct sales business on the side, have a family or are trying to take your business to full time. In the training video below, I am sharing several ways to get more done in less time in your business.
- Being productive all starts with priorities. Make sure you know what your priorities are in your life and in your business, the non-negotiables, the big things that you don’t want to sacrifice that need to stay number one. Whether that’s your family time, whether that’s volunteer or church activities, self-care is also something that should be a non-negotiable. If you work outside the home, or full-time, or any other commitments or things that you have that are really important and priorities in your life, knowing what those are and making sure you’re staying committed to making them remain number one in your business and you’re only saying the best yes, only saying yes to the things that reflect your priorities, your goals, your vision for your life is kind of where it all starts.
- The next tip for being more productive is having a schedule. Whether you are the type that needs a set schedule, specific hours you work certain days of the week or if you are more like me and need a more flexible schedule and can work off a task list or theme days/batching tasks, the key is setting aside time to actually work your business. You have to do the work to earn the income
- Theme Days and batching similar tasks has been the magic sauce for helping me be more productive for years. Studies have shown is, every time that we jump from one subject or one topic, or one thought train to another, it takes our brains about 15 or 20 minutes to get back into that zone of focus. You can accomplish so much more when you batch similar tasks together into theme projects or even theme days. For example I used to do Marketing Mondays, Team Tuesdays, Work in my Office Wednesdays, Party Thursdays, Follow Up Friday, Event Saturdays, Planning Sundays.
