You really don’t.
You have work-on-the-business time.
When I’m not seeing a notary client or writing, I’m working on my part time business. I’m working my marketing — online, offline and word of mouth. I am brainstorming new ways to reach prospect clients. I am working on other hustles.
I am always trying my best not to let a valuable moment go to waste. I would hate to have had chance to crush an opportunity but didn’t because I was Netflixing. Don’t get me wrong. I take time out chill and come back to it all, but I also remind myself to stay focus on the goal. Trust me, I watched Birdbox too. I wasn’t part of the crazy challenge though, but I was feelin’ the movie.
When it was over, I went back to brainstorming ideas for the notary business.
Down time is research time. Idea time. Planning time. And testing time. Follow up time. Respond to emails time. It’s never truly down just “down time”.
