As you know firsthand, business owners are very busy. But what exactly are you busy doing?

Are you spending the bulk of your hours working IN your trade business, and not finding time to work ON the important things that will help you grow your customer base and increase the size of your business?

These are tricky questions to answer, but it’s important that you take the time to reflect. Learning how to best use your time can result in a business that’s not only surviving, but thriving.

In this podcast, I share with you some very useful strategies to help you do the following:

  • Determine where you are spending most of your time.
  • Divide your time effectively to ensure smooth and profitable day-to-day operations, as well as future growth.
  • Find even more time in the day to work on tasks that need to be done. I’ll give you seven different ways you can achieve more each and every working day.

I’ll also introduce you to a formula for time management for business growth created by Tim Dwyer, Director of one of the world’s most respected business consultancy firms, Shirlaws.
