Get More Free Time From This Marketing Fitness Tip!

You know, I have been thinking lately about how much I value my free time. It is high on my list of values, actually. It is probably higher on the list for me than for most people.

Free time is so valuable to me because it lets me…

* Spend my time with my family.

* Hang out with friends more often.

* Find more ways to make automated income – this is a big one and I do it often because I love coming up with new products and services that make me money or work on new marketing fitness strategies.

* Enjoy a movie.

* Work on my own fitness – which is always a good thing.

* Read and learn.

* Travel.

* Just do what I want to do.

I am really focused on having a business that gives me my freedom. Don’t get me wrong, I love a business that makes me money, but I also love my freedom. I could make more money if I wanted to invest more time, but my free time is more important to me than the money. Money is just a part of reaching freedom and finding security. What I did was find a good balance.

My system is to create a way to make money, make it automated and then get others to do the work for me. It is easy. I have about 10 in place and am working on the next three in my free time.

Do you want more time free from marketing fitness? Try these tips…

1. Make as much of your business as possible automated. Create operation manuals and then get good people to work for you. The idea is to take yourself out of the equation as much as possible.

2. Avoid taking on things that won’t help your freedom business.

3. Get a good personal assistant. Spend as much as you can because a good assistant will make a huge difference. If you settle on someone who is just okay you will pay for it in the end.

4. Read some good books, specifically, The Emyth by Michel Gerber and The Four Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferris.

5. Focus your efforts on the big things that will advance your business and delegate out everything else.

6. Your main focus needs to be on marketing fitness strategies. You have to concentrate on networking and getting your business from bottom to top.

7. Learn to say “no”. Don’t feel bad about doing it either. Your time is valuable and saying no keeps you in charge of it.

8. Focus on making a lot of money. Charge a good price and don’t waste your time on things that won’t make you good money. There are times for pro bono work that can be good for you, though.

9. Set and keep deadlines to keep you on track and make the most of your time.

10. Find people to bring on board who are good at things that you are not.

11. Your goal should be to get to the owners model and publishers model in your business. Owners just own the business. Publishers get others to create content for them. These are both great models to free up your time.

12. Take on projects that are either going to create ongoing profits or have a large upfront payment. You want to focus in on projects that will allow you to offer low end products, help with marketing fitness strategies and build your list.

13. Use a to-do list.

14. Go over what you do and outsource what you can. If someone else can do it for less money then let them. It can be anything from chores at home to work tasks. Always be thinking about how you can save time and who can do things for you.

15. Don’t over complicate things. Simple is the key.

Well, there you have 15 things that you can start doing to free up your time. If you are like me then a lot of that new free time is going to go towards finding ways to make more money.
