Here are 5 quick things you can do to work less and earn more.
#1 Automate your workload.
One of the best ways to free up your time is to make use of automation tools. You can automate everything from social media scheduling/posting to reputation monitoring: link building, meetings and appointments, email lists, sales, and customer support. If you find yourself stressed over a particular part of your work or how much you have to do, remember that there’s an automation tool for almost anything you can think of.
#2 Outsource Parts of Your Business Or Work
Everyone has unique strengths and weaknesses. There will be some things you absolutely hate doing, and others that you’ll love. Find people who love to do the things you hate, believe me, they exist! Freelancers and outsourcing agencies are a great asset and they can really assist in reducing your workload.
#3 Work Less By Hiring A Virtual Assistant
A virtual assistant (VA) is a low-cost freelancer who can complete some of the more repetitive tasks you would typically have to do. Tasks like data entry, scheduling meetings, email, and so on. You can often hire them on an hourly basis and only pay after the work is complete. Finding the right one might take a while, but it can be a great shortcut to success.
#4 Collaborate and network
Connecting with people in your field is a great way to grow your business or professional network. You can cross-promote each other’s products to increase awareness of what you have to offer. By leveraging the power of multiple platforms and professional networks, you’ll be able to grow much faster than doing it alone.
#5 Schedule some downtime
Relaxation is a necessary part of being successful. After all, one of the reasons you’re working or building a business is so that you’re able to enjoy the benefits that life has to offer. Make sure you’re spending at least one day a week where you aren’t doing anything work-related. This allows you to come back refreshed and approach your work with a fresh perspective.
