Simple Ways to Be a Better Entrepreneur

Latest posts by Melanie Rembrandt (see all)

Are you an entrepreneur who is stressed out about work and getting projects done on time? Check out these three, simple tips to help you get back on track… fast!

1. Work extra hours at strange times.

If you are a morning person, try to get up one hour earlier and start working. If you are a night owl, start your day a little later and work longer into the night.

You’ll be surprised at how much you can accomplish when everyone else is sleeping. Then, after you get caught up, you can go back to your regular schedule. (But you may not want to!)

2. Stop and think.

If you are rushing to meet deadlines non-stop, it’s time to hold your calls and get organized. Take a few minutes to look at your schedule.

Figure out your priorities and how much time you’ll need to finish each task. If it’s overwhelming, look at hiring a virtual assistant, temporary worker or intern.

Yes, it will take some time to train that person, but in the long run, you’ll have more time to finish important priorities, meet deadlines and plan ahead.

3. Take a day off.

If you are working seven days a week, you’ll probably start to get tired, feel sick and lose any kind of passion you originally had for your business.

While it takes a lot of time and effort to have a successful business, there’s no reason to “kill” yourself in the process.

Try to set aside one day a week to relax. Do something that you like to do and have fun.

By taking some time off of work, you’ll be able to approach your work with a fresh perspective and have more energy to accomplish more.

Feel the Love, Again.

These are just three, simple tips, but they can help you feel a lot better about being an entrepreneur and the future of your business!
