Finding the time for a business on the side

“I don’t have enough time to start a business”.

This excuse has undoubtedly prevented the establishment of some of the most successful businesses of all time.

Most prospective entrepreneurs caged by this excuse underestimate the time and effort they can afford to give to the formation and development of a business.

Naturally, this underestimation leads us to believe that while we offer our services of employment to other businesses, finding the time for a business on the side is impossible. This is in fact a myth.

The beauty of starting a business is that most of our time and efforts in the start up phase can be accumulated however quickly or slowly we choose. If you are working long hours currently, there is no strict rule on how much time you must devote. Think of what you could achieve in 2019 alone if you started working on your side hustle tomorrow.

Even three hours a week may seem trivial and not worth the extra effort, however after the next eleven months you will have spent roughly 144 hours on the project, or the equivalent of almost 4 full time working weeks!

You'll also find that once you build momentum, it's easier to motivate yourself to find additional time during the week.
