Working For Yourself

Don’t Wait Till the End of the Day to Work On Your Side Hustle

Its A Trap GIF by Star Wars

Ever heard the concept of “pay yourself first?”

This advice usually applies to money…

But it can (and should) also apply to your time.

If you’re working on a side hustle, don’t leave it till the end of your day…

Because you’ll often be too tired or stressed out to put in quality time on it.

Instead, spend the first hour of your day working for yourself.

Whether that’s…

→  Growing your audience on social media
→  Building a digital product
→  Or learning new skills

Not only will that investment compound over time…

But putting yourself first is a subconscious signal that will give you a greater feeling of control over your business and your life.
