When you think of an online businessman, what comes to your mind? Do you picture them all sitting by the beach sipping Mai-tai’s? What you need to understand is that most online businessmen that make a good amount of money are not sitting by the beach or the pool, instead they are working diligently in their office.
I know, this is not what you wanted to picture but it is the truth.
Have you ever heard those affiliate marketers say that they are making hundreds of thousands of dollars while only working 2 hours per day? What they don’t tell you is that they had to do a lot of work before that in order to work only 2 hours per day. The reason I wanted to tell you this is because online businessmen spend hours in their office just to get to where they are now. Being that I don’t want you spending 15 hours per day in your office, I am going to give you a few methods to become a more efficient online businessman.
Methods To Become More Efficient
Have you ever heard of the 5/25 method? What this consists of is simply 5 minutes of planning and 25 minutes of action. So what I mean by this is you will spend 5 minutes figuring out what you will do for the next 25 minutes and then start the process over again. The reason this works so well is because you have a set period of time that you will do nothing but work and the other 5 minutes will go towards planning. Any leftover time in that half an hour will be free time for you to do whatever you want to do.
If you have spent much time learning about what the gurus do, then you know that you must be part of a mastermind group. All a mastermind group consists of is a few (or as many as you want) people that deal in the same industry as you do. So for instance, if I was a writer I would find some people that are also writers to join the group. In the group you will talk about goals, achievements and anything that will help you get to where you want to be.
Own Your Calendar
When I say own your calendar I don’t mean you need to own one. What I mean is that you need to be in control of your time and how you use it. What I highly recommend is that you block out a certain portion of every day so that you can stick to getting your work done. Most people that work for themselves don’t think this way, they just think that they can work when they have free time. Trust me, if you think you can work in your free time, then you will never make the kind of money that you need to.
If you are serious about making money online, then you need to be as efficient as possible. One of the reasons so many people quit trying to make money online is because they are not making as much as they want to in the time that they have. Just remember, you don’t need more time you just need to be more efficient.
