3 Tips for Finding More Time, Focus and Money

Time, Focus and Money – 3 things we never seem to have enough of.  So what is the solution?

Here are some tips to get you started on finding more time, focus and money in your life and business today.


Infinity-Time1One of the questions that I’m asked most often as a business coach comes from those wondering about the challenges of owning a business. Many people want to know what the top challenge is for a mompreneur. The answer, as far as I’m concerned, will always be the same. The biggest challenge to mom business owners comes in finding enough time in a day. No matter how hard we work or how disciplined we are in our strategies, there will never be enough time to do it all. More so than other entrepreneurs, when you put the word “mom” in front of your title, it makes it tricky to manage and priorities your life accordingly.

That’s where a Time Map can come in handy. This is one of the most important things that we teach at the Mom Biz Retreat, and it’s one of the most basic, but it certainly delivers and resonates with most of our attendees. If you feel, like so many of us do, that you’re constantly running out of time, use a Time Map to own your time and how you spend it.

A Time Map is literally going to create boundaries for you in order to help get your daily requirements done. You’ll lay things out and see where you need to make adjustments. Then you can plan according to your prioritized list in order to make sure you’re spending the time you have in the most effective ways. When you use a Time Map, you’re almost guaranteed to find the time you need to do the things you need to do.


focus1Focus on finding new clients. It’s not simple! Finding clientele takes work and effort, but you’re up for the challenge. First, think about who you most want to serve. If you take the time to really think about the people who need the service or product you can provide, you will identify your ideal client. Then, think about what it is that they want. This will help you find the perfect way to reach those people right where they are.

You’re creative! You’re innovative! You can definitely come up with something these people need. Identify a problem and offer them the solution.


moneyAs business owners, we need to constantly be reaching out to our clientele to find a way to create more sales and revenue. One of the best ways to make more money is to go through your current client base and ask yourself what each person last bought from you. By brainstorming on your client’s needs in the past, you’ll be able to get a good idea about what they may need in the future.

Remember that your current clients are your best source of revenue! They know you and trust you. Find something to sell to those who are already buying from you. Keep in touch so that you’re first on their list when it’s time to make a new purchase.

  1. So do I, Polly. If it’s not on my Google calendar, it doesn’t exist. Thanks for the comment.

  2. I need to seriously revisit my time map. Being intentional about how I use my time is so important if I expect to make consistent income.

  3. Well, Laila, you’re right! But I’m curious what has taken you away from your Time Map? And by asking that question, I don’t mean to suggest that it’s easy to stick with a healthy routine forever. However, if you can figure out why you’ve stopped using your Time Map, it might shed some light on some shift of priorities, or schedules, or a change in direction that happens every so often.

    For instance: When you created your Time Map with us at MomBizRetreat in February, it was still winter. Now that summer is here (and spring just completely got skipped over…), you may be finding that your and your son’s schedules are causing your time to work differently. I find I need to adjust my own Time Map every quarter, since the change of seasons affects my kids’ schedules, and therefore, my schedule.
