It is now officially British Summertime here in the UK.
The clocks ‘went forward’ one hour at the weekend, so it means that the evenings are lighter and it does not get dark so early. I love summer and more daylight just makes you feel better – especially if the sun is shining.
But more daylight does not give you more time and it still means that you have to find time in the early days of setting up an online business to get everything moving – as well as still slogging away at the day job.
I see my online business a little bit like my garden. I spent a few hours in the sunshine this weekend, mowing the lawn, weeding the flower beds and moving small shrubs and bushes to an area that was pretty barren. I was quite pleased with my efforts -not that I have a massive garden, but it does take time to getting it looking presentable and for things to grow.
This is no different to my online business. I have to ensure that new traffic generating campaigns have worked. Just recently, I did a small campaign and it was OK – but it did not generate what I was hoping for. So, I’ll have to plant it somewhere else, give it a bit more fertilizer and see what happens.
I also have to check everything on website and ‘weed-out’ any broken links or poor grammar and spelling.
I could go on forever with gardening metaphors but I guess you get the message.
Building an new business online does take time and the hard work will pay-off in the end. And when it does, that will give me more spare time to sit in my garden and relax in the summer sunshine!
If you are still uncertain about how to set up an online business, I found this blueprint report and ‘7 day bootcamp’ from the Six Figure Mentor programme very useful.
