Long live the Hobby!



Imagine as a business owner having a hobby or side hustle you could work on during the week?


“Nonsense” I feel you saying.


Well, its 100% possible and you can do it.


Have you ever thought that you went into business so you could have more freedom?


Yeah, so did I and every other business owner in Australia, it’s a common misconception.


How do I know it’s possible? Well, its simple - proof!


Jeff, not his real name, has been in business for over 20 years and thought it was normal to work weekends, after hours and sacrificing time with his family just so he can own a business.


After our first discovery session he had realised it was a farce and that things can be done better.


This is what you can do to help provide clarity within your business and personal life:


● Draw a circle on a piece of paper

● Name the centre circle – Health

● Name the middle circle – Family

● Name the outer circle – Business


Run through a list of tasks you had done in the previous week and write them down in each circle of relevance, if they don’t fit in any circle, then write them as a list on the outside.


Anything in the list outside of the circles should be either discarded/outsourced or delegated so they are not on your daily list of to do items.


This will provide so much clarity and help you determine what needs to be done by you or done at all.


Does this seem to be the best use of your time, or could you pay someone less to do it? Wouldn’t you rather spend more time with the family, riding dirt bikes, fishing or camping? If you need help with this, let’s have a chat. I’ve been helping businesses with this for the last 20 years!
