Albert Einstein said the definition for insanity is:
“doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”.
By reading my book and then visiting this website you are on the path to getting different results from your life.
In order to become the business person that you truly want to be you have to be willing to let go of who you were, who you believe other people think you should be and you need to make an agreement with yourself that you will stick to this new path that you have chosen no matter how hard the journey becomes because you know that the alternative is to go back to the life that you had before.
The one where you felt that you never seemed to have enough time to live the life that you dreamed of, you were constantly frustrated with yourself and others and everything seemed to be conspiring against you.
In the book I asked you to make an agreement with yourself that you recognised the need to change and you understood that you were responsible for making this change a reality.
If you want to download and print this agreement so that you can display it in a place where you will notice it then click the link under the LINKS SECTION in the right column.
The time you have in each working day is limited, you are more aware than ever of this, you are also aware that social media drives traffic to your website, raises your brand profile and ultimately increases your sales (to a greater or lesser degree depending on your product/service of course). The digital media tool that I recommend to help you manage your time and social media impact is called:
Buffer – it allows you to schedule your messages and tweets across multiple social networks in one go for a few days at a time. You can track your post activity and interactions, and then analyse what this means for traffic, saving you time and ultimately money as you now have more time to spend making money rather than doing things that take you away from it.
The greatest strength of any entrepreneur is identifying what their core skill set is, the greatest value that they actually bring to their business, spending as much time as possible on that, and then outsourcing or delegating everything else.
To outsource successfully you must have done the activities yourself, in order to understand what is required of the people you give the tasks.
Your time is most effectively spent focusing on what you do best, and where you add the most value.
There are many outsourcing companies out there, but the ones that I recommend are providers that I have used, and their websites contain a huge amount of information and videos for how to carry out each part step-by-step.
All decisions are yours and yours alone, don’t cut corners or fail to carry out your research, project manage your staff, or assume anything.
Make sure you read pages 37-49 for some valuable tips on how to avoid problems and what to do if things go wrong.
Outsourcing does not mean handing over and forgetting you are still required to be involved in the process!

In the final part of the book I encouraged you to start planning the actions that you were going to take as a result of reading the book. I did this because I want you to succeed.
As humans we can have a tendency to hear about new things, think they are great, but do nothing about them.
Success is all about taking action and being as passionate as I am about time it is my deepest desire that you are able to live the balanced life that you dream of.
No matter how big or how small the action that you take is it is, it has to be something. Otherwise you will keep on getting the same results and I am sure that you don’t really want to live in insanity any more do you?
Making changes takes courage (please click on link in the LINK SECTION above right column).
We are used to doing what we do and how we do it, and although we know it is preventing us from the success that we truly want.
It can be hard to let go of the past that is certain in order to strive for a future that is unclear.
As I just mentioned success only comes from action and action comes from courage.
So now would be a great time to dig out your heart of courage!

Research carried out at Harvard University in 1979 discovered that the 3% of students who had clear written goals EARNED 10 times more than their peers without clear written goals.
(Source: What They Don’t Teach You in the Harvard Business School, by Mark McCormack)
Finally in addition to written goals there is much agreement that vision boards act as a brilliant visual reminder of what it is that you are working towards, they can be done in a number of ways, you can cut out pictures and stick them to paper or you can find images from the internet and your own collection and arrange them in a word document for example – click on link in the LINK SECTION above right column. to see an example I created.
It should contain images that sum up the lifestyle you want to have, items you want to own, you can include pictures of people you want to spend time with, and feelings you want to experience – you are only limited by your imagination.
It is an exercise that once you get started it becomes fun!!

for Entreprene urs 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 unnecessar y waste. Throughout the book there are action taking tips to implement, and I really liked the case-studi es from different people giving their personal insights as well.
Although the title is ‘for Entreprene
urs’ 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.
