5 Things Entrepreneurs Can Do to Stay Focused on Business

As an entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur making time to focus on your business can be challenging. Did you notice that I used the word “making” time vs having time?

When I first started my business I could not “find the time” to consistently work on my business. There was always something seemingly more urgent requiring my attention. I would say to myself, “tomorrow I’ll have more time.” Of course, this cycle kept repeating itself and I hardly ever had more time.

The truth is that I had enough time to focus on my business and so do you. My issue (and probably yours too) was I did not make my business a priority. When you are not focused on your business you do business when you can “squeeze in time” for it or when it’s convenient for you. Think about it, if you’re in a relationship and spent time with your significant other only when it was convenient for you, is that relationship a priority? Are you focused on that relationship? Do you think the relationship will flourish? The same is true for your business. If it’s not a priority, if it doesn’t have your focus, you won’t have much traction in your business.

You want to have a foundation for your business that leads to success. Being focused on your business is a necessary part of the foundation.

Here are 5 things you can do to stay focused on your business:

1. Get really clear about what you want for your business.

Focus is “directed attention” (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/focus). To stay focused you have to know what you’re directing your attention towards. By getting clear about what you want from your business you will have something to focus on. Take the time to find this out.

2. Write down what really matters.

Ask yourself why you’re doing what you do and stick it up somewhere to remind yourself. There may be days where you’ll have to remind yourself why you’re in business in order to stay focused; on those days you’ll be glad you did this exercise.

3. Say yes to you.

You have to stop putting yourself last. Believe it or not, it’s hard to focus on business when you’re not a priority in your own life. Make time for you.

4. Make a plan to have whatever you wrote in #1 and take action on it.

You’ll stay focused when you have a plan for making the business you desire a reality. Create a realistic plan and implement it. Each time you take action, your focus will grow stronger. You can do it!

5. Sometimes you need help and it’s ok.

Honestly, you are smart and you can take action on your own. However, since you’re reading this, you probably don’t have clarity, a plan of action, or the discipline required for taking consistent action right now and it’s ok. It just means that you can continue to wait for the motivation to come or you can have someone help you get there quicker. You decide.

There you have it, 5 Things Entrepreneurs Can Do To Stay Focused on Business.

I’m trying to transform my life but…


Have you ever bought a book or enrolled in a program that was supposed to transform your business or life but nothing changed? To be fair, nothing changed because you didn’t read the book and you didn’t engage in that coaching program. Why? It’s because there’s some growth that has to happen for you to become a person who takes action. 

Success (the completion of what you set out to do) doesn’t just happen. It’s intentional and it’s a process. Some people seem to be naturally driven and destined for success. It’s because they know what they want. Clarity will do that for you. 

That’s what A Course in Personal Development is about. It’s about becoming a person who knows what you want and taking action to have what you want. In 6 weeks I’ll walk you through the process of becoming a person who takes action. A person who doesn’t settle or live in the land of “I can do that if…” or “One day I’ll…” 

Join me for 6 life changing weeks. You can learn more about A Course in Personal Development here: LEARN MORE

I’m Ready For Change Workshop

the-eleventh-hour-1156776_640

Hello! I have a question for you? Are you ready to change your current situation? I have a quote that I say a lot, “Nothing changed until I did.” I love this quote so much I even wrote about it for the Huffington Post (you can read it here).

There was a time in my life where it looked like I had it all, career, family, friends. I knew there was more to my life than the way I was living it. I didn’t know how to access that “more” at the time though. All that I felt was stuck, unfulfilled, and unmotivated. Can you relate? It’s the worse feeling, wanting change in your life but having no idea how to make it happen.

Since that time, I’ve discovered the key to ending procrastination, the key to getting unstuck, and the key to fulfillment. It starts with knowing what you want and knowing how to get there. Of course there is a lot more in between and that’s what I want to share with you during the I’m Ready For Change call.

What do you want to change in your life? Do you want a better marriage, a promotion on your job, better relationships, to feel happy again, to start a business, or lose the weight and keep it off? Whatever it is, it’s not going to happen until you do something to make it happen.

Here’s some of what you’ll learn on the call:

  • Exactly what you need to do to have BIG change in your life
  • How to get what you want
  • How to know what you want
  • How to get unstuck
  • Time management strategies
  • Habits for success

Are you ready to embrace change so that you can have the life you really want? Join me live on Tuesday May 16 at 12 pm ET for I’m Ready For Change. You really don’t want to miss this.
