"Tick Tock, Tick Tock; Time is precious, we’ve all got just 24 hours in a day, it is what we do with it that matters. Abigail Barnes knows more than most, just how precious it is, in this book you’ll gain pearls of wisdom to help you make the most of your time."Jonathan, London
"Time Management for Entrepreneurs is such a useful book, written in a style that is quick and easy to read. The structure walks you through analysing how you spend your time and then provides tips and solutions of how to cut out unnecessary waste. Throughout the book there are action taking tips to implement, and I really liked the case-studies from different people giving their personal insights as well.Anna, Southhampton
Although the title is ‘for Entrepreneurs’ and I did buy it to help me manage my business time better, really the book is useful for everybody who would like some help to focus on a goal (be it personal or work related) and take the steps to make the time to do it. I’ve used this, scribbled notes all over and used the extra resources available from Abigail. It really has helped me manage my time. Thank you so much."
"I'm only half way through Time Management for Entrepreneurs and already I have found multiple implementations into my daily habits. There's nothing more valuable than time and Abigail is definitely an expert in this field. High ROI."Maximilian, London
"I just wanted to share the events of this week. I had a meeting with Abigail Barnes two weeks or so ago and we spoke about lots of things but she said something about VA's that particularly resonated with me.Karin, Scotland
I had always steered away from using "foreign assistance" due to the perception I had about slave labour etc from Asia etc. Abigail and I spoke about this and she highlighted the fact that we are providing employment to people where the average hourly rate is $0.40 and the majority of people live on less than $1 a day and that if you paid them $10 per hour this would destabilise their economy and cause issues.
I'd been busy the last two weeks travelling all around Scotland and early this week I thought bugger this I need some help so I explored fiverr. And found a very lovely and professional Indian gentleman called Anmol who had a 7 hour block of time available for $10 dollars this worked out at $1.45 ph 3.5 times the average wage which I felt was fair. I needed some research doing for the second edition of my book This is Gin so I gave this to him to do with a 3 day deadline. Long story short he came back in less than a day with everything completed perfectly.
I spent some time looking at my to do list and deciding which tasks I didn't want to do, weren't my immediate priority etc and have given them to him to do. Im now employing him one day a week to do all the tasks that have kept me from driving my business forward.
I've been out seeing more clients, returning calls quicker, scheduling appointments sooner and generally working more efficiently. My brain has been freed up to get my new website properly planned out and start writing copy and planning videos, knowing that production of my downloads etc is all in hand and I'm not stressing about them.
I've been sleeping better this week since I took the plunge too. Not only have I freed up my workload but I'm more motivated again too.So if you've been considering employing a VA please do it. You won't regret it. Find the person that fits you and your business. I was lucky I got a good fit at first try, here's hoping you do too.
Now, running two businesses is fully possible one four days a week one one day - time to explore automation too."
"Just had a call with Abigail and I've ended up with a page of super helpful pointers, super helpful and actionable straight away."Charlie, London
