Are you a blogger or entrepreneur? You’ll need a routine to get a balanced work week. Here are some ways on how you can have a balanced work week and have it help your business goals.
Client work. You need to find a balance between servicing versus growing your business. Having all your work be for clients all the time can cause problems for your business. You can’t grow a business when you are focused solely on this. Have a client process, timelines, and boundaries.
Marketing. You’ll need to attract clients to your business. Marketing can include different things, like networking and creating content. You will need to find a balance between what you can do to keep up a marketing strategy while maintaining client work.
Networking. You’ll be doing this to either find clients or friends in the business. Connecting with others should be part of your week. Even if you are introverted, you’ll need to do this at least some of the time. Having friends in your industry can get you support and also referrals.
Creating content. You should be keeping up with your blog, social media, and also potentially creating content to sell, whether it is an ebook or a course.
Learning. Consider yourself a lifelong learner from here on out. For me, this included returning to school, but that’s not all. I also consume a ton of content every week through reading blogs and other content.
Administration tasks. You’ll need to check your email and keep your finances in order. You’ll want to update your website on occasion. You’ll need to create a weekly routine for this.
Personal time. You need a break scheduled into your week. You shouldn’t be skipping meals, drinking too much coffee and stay only at your desk. You should be taking at least one day off a week and have frequent breaks. If you don’t you are just going to burn out.
Of course, not every week will be totally balanced. Putting in an effort to balance work and life will keep you healthier and more successful.
