Are you a master multi-tasker? How does your time management stack up in checking off your business’ priority tasks while still meeting the demands of your 9 to 5?
According to Oprah, and many other successful business leaders, the idea of multitasking while running a business is not only bad business practice, it is impossible.
The belief is that the focus necessary to grow your business cannot be split between your passion and the job or jobs paying your bills.
Unfortunately for many, leaving your job to the soundtrack of Young Dro’s “F*ck that B*tch” is financially irresponsible. Often times, that job we despise is funding the studio sessions, vendor fees to showcase that new clothing line, or keeping the lights on for all of the home photo shoots to promote your lipstick line.
Those jobs are your entrepreneurial means to an end. The climb to reach Oprah status isn’t impossible while putting in those hours to cut the checks. It all boils down to how you optimize every minute of your day.
On your lunch hour – or half hour – instead of mindlessly scrolling through your Instagram or Snapchat, take those minutes to respond to emails, book appointments, or follow up with possible collaborators.
