3 Productivity Hacks for Online Entrepreneurs

Time is the most valuable commodity we living beings have. We all have the same amount of time everyday; 24 hours. Whether we are healthy or ill, tired or strong, rich or poor, young or old, we all have the same amount of hours each day, and none of us can buy time back. What we do with our time is what makes the difference in our lives. Since we can’t go back in time to make amends or do things right, we have to make sure we are maximising the most of our time every day regardless of our situation.

For us online entrepreneurs, managing our time and being as productive as possible is so important. Especially as most of us work alone and we are our own bosses.

Many people wonder how I get “the time” to do all I do – juggling my twin toddlers pretty much by myself all day, and running my online projects. When I wrote my book – How to Cash In as a Blogger, many asked how I found the time for that. I found it so weird that I kept getting asking the same question over and over again. Well, when there is a will, there is a way, and there is always enough time to get done all that needs to be done.

Here are 3 productivity hacks that have worked for me in the past 5 years, you may work for you as well:

 

Guard your time

Now this is the first productivity hack I am mentioning for a reason, and that is because without having the time, you can’t get anything done. So you need to ensure you guard your time jealously.

In 24 hours, I need to sleep at least 7 hours so I don’t get grumpy, I need to eat my meals, I need to feed my family, I need to get my kids to pre school and get them back home in time, I need to write, I need to get blog work done, I need to attend to my freelance clients, and so on. So with all the various tasks that need to be done, I can’t afford to speak on the phone for hours, to be on Whatsapp chatting endlessly, watch all the series on TV or lie in bed all day. I need to guard my time.

Once you guard your time, you will find that you have more time than you thought you did.

 

Set a routine

Once your time has been guarded, then you need to set a clear routine so you know what needs to be done daily and in what order, leaving a bit of room for flexibility. Having a to-do list helps massively as well. I tend to be on top of my day when I stick to my to-do list.

The beauty of having a routine and to-do list is that you don’t need to think of what needs to be done because you know that already. It helps you become more efficient.

Work hard

Many people say it is work smart and not hard. I tend to disagree with this many times depending on the situation. In order to be productive, you have to be hard-working. Yes you will need to work smart too but you will have to work hard first for your work smart to work for you.

Imagine if BeyoncΓ© was “working smart” from her days in Destiny’s Child? Do you think she would be where she is today? No I don’t think so. For you to relax on your hustle, you have to put in the work in the foundation days.

I Would Miss

I wrote a post some days ago about how I was challenged to feed my family with Β£2 each for a day, and how hard it was. That challenge made me reflect on the little things we take for granted everyday. It can be easy to take the everyday luxuries we enjoy, for granted.

 

Leather Leggings

 

Many people are deprived of basic amenities. They have to go without things they would need for survival because they have no choice. This has made me think deep about how I would cope if I ever found myself in a situation where I had to go without. If I was stranded in a remote region, how would I cope? Well I am not sure how I would cope but I know what things I would miss the most.

 

Central Heating System

It is winter, so central heating is the first thing on my mind. I don’t know what I would do or how I would cope if I was stranded in a cold remote region without any gas cylinders for heating. I can’t even imagine that happening, it is a scary thought.

 

Hot Water

I would miss having a nice warm bath. The thought of not having access to a bath or hot water is horrible.

 

Electricity

I would miss having a steady supply of electricity. I have not experienced a power cut in years. Not sure how I would cope stranded in a remote region with electricity.

 

WiFi

I would miss having WiFi. I am always online doing one thing or the other, so having that taken from me would not be good. I need my WiFi like I need my air. I can’t function without it, plus it means I won’t be able to use my laptop, tablet or phone, if I have access to them.

 

My Home

Apart from missing all the things above, I would miss my home itself. I am a very homely person; you would most likely catch me at home most days. I miss my home whenever I am away from it for a period of time. I would miss my TV, my bed, my couch, kitchen, garden and everything else that makes my house a home.

All About Matched Betting

I am proud to announce the fact that I am no longer a Matched Betting virgin. I have heard so much about this Matched Betting service, especially on social media. And I have been dying to find out more about it. Many bloggers claim they make thousands of pounds a month from Matched Betting, so as a serial onlineprenuer, I needed to see for myself. So I am glad I have finally had the opportunity to try it, thanks to the very useful Profit Accumulator website.

For those who have never heard of Matched Betting, it is a tax and risk free betting technique used by individuals to profit from the free bets and incentives offered by bookmakers. It is based on a mathematical equation rather than luck, which makes perfect sense.

While Profit Accumulator is a website that shows the best profitable offers available, and talk you through how to make your profit with the help of videos, very clear instructions, forums and articles. The Profit Accumulator website clearly explains how to win the bets.

As a new customer, I had the opportunity to make use of the free trial membership on Profit Accumulator, and I made the most of it. I found the Profit Accumulator website so easy to navigate, it was very user-friendly, and the videos were very helpful. There were instructions and vidoes that explained every step in detail, and for a novice like me, that is exactly what I needed.

I also liked the fact that the free trial is a completely free subscription. I did not need to put down any card details, unlike some other “free subscriptions” that still insist on having your card details, even though it is free.

The Profit Accumulator website takes the complication out of matched betting because the website does all the ground work for you. All you literally have to do is watch the videos, follow the instructions (taking notes if you have to), and bet. It is that simple.

There is also a dedicated support team available to all members online and via phone, six days a week, which is handy. The platinum members (they pay a subscription) get access to the private forums; a community of over 20,000 like-minded Matched Bettors, all working together with the same goal in mind – to make money.

Overall, I think this free service is worth trying if you are into things like this. And if you are not, you could use it to test the waters and discover what Matched Betting is all about, and see if you maybe into things like it. You have nothing to lose really.

What are your thoughts on this? Have you tried the Profit Accumulator website before?
