The Long Game Is. . . Working on Your Business

The LONG GAME Episode 62 Working on Your Business with Sandra Scaiano

I always put my clients and what I’ve committed to first in business, and I bet the same is true for you. So then, how do you make time to work on your own business when you have projects you want to complete? That’s what I’ll be talking about in today’s podcast.

I used the process of creating content on my own business with a course I’m working on now. Today, I’m going to reflect on how this is different from working with clients. For instance, progress on your own projects might be a little slower than when you work with clients.

Here are some of the things that I do to help keep the workflow moving and what I do to keep progressing with it:

  • Have a system. There are many systems that can help keep you on track.

  • I offer questions to help you get to the step-by-step of your own tasks.

  • One important point: build inspiration time into the system! I tell you how.

  • How these inspiration sessions can help the project you are currently developing.

  • How asking the right questions for your brand and your product will affect all the other items you create.

  • Schedule time to build out all the pieces (think: time blocking).

  • How I was able to make time every day and how much time you really need.

  • I talk about how using the same language in multiple places in your marketing can reinforce these ideas to your customer.

    When you work on your own projects for your business, remember:

  • You really can feel accomplished using the time you have.

  • While you build something new, you might need to make adjustments to your schedule.

  • This is time to work on your own creative ideas.

  • This work allows you to step into your own power and work on your vision for the future.

  • I believe that as entrepreneurs, we all have to spend time moving closer to our vision for the future. One way I’m doing this is by taking some time off in July and August.

    I also discuss:

  • How astrological influences can affect us (also see Episode 41 with Shauna Angel Blue)

  • What we can expect for the next two months now that Mercury retrograde is over

  • The areas we should be working on right now

  • How to answer the question that every entrepreneur asks: “How do I work on my own business?”
