Is Your TV, Computer or Bed Making You Lose Sales?

Ok. You may think I’m nuts, but I’m writing this at 4:45 on a Tuesday morning. I just put three loads of laundry into the washing machine, and I’m now tackling several, SEO writing assignments in addition to this blog.

Don’t hate me because I’m a morning person. I had to train myself to get into this schedule… and have a big cup of coffee on hand…

But I’ve got to tell you, I get a ton of work done before my phone starts ringing and the e-mails start coming in. Plus, I can work with my East Coast clients and the media during their morning hours. With this in mind…

What are you doing early in the morning or late at night?

If you are spending many, unnecessary hours in front of the TV, searching the Web or sleeping, you may want to rethink your schedule.

Just by reducing the amount of time you spend on the couch or in “snoozeville,” you could grow your business by thousands of dollars!

Think about it.

By adding one hour of writing, reading, learning, marketing, or strategic planning to your day, you get an additional 20 hours per month – about 240 hours per year! That’s a total of 10 whole days! (And how much is that to you in dollars per hour?)

That’s a lot of extra time that can give you the competitive edge you need in today’s economy.

… so the next time you decide to crash in front of some meaningless television program, search the Web or hit the “snooze” button one more time, take a moment to think.

By making simple changes to your regular pattern (and having a little more discipline), you can get a lot more accomplished. And while your competitors are “sleeping,” you can spend less time stressing about your business and more time enjoying higher profits and success!

Do you need help getting people to your Web site and building buzz?
