Our 7 Best Tips For Improving Time Management in Your Network Marketing Business

Brandy Shaver

As an entrepreneur, it can be challenging to balance the demands of your business with the other responsibilities in your life. 

It's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks and activities, and before you know it, time has flown by and you haven't made much progress on your goals. 

But don't worry, there are ways to improve your time management and make the most of the time you have. 

Check out Our 7 Best Tips For Improving Time Management in Your Business where you will discover real actionable steps on how to structure your day to build your empire in the nooks and crannys of your life from Brandy Shaver, a mother of 6 that has built a massive empire all online from home without going insane.



Identifying Available Time: The First Step to Success in Network Marketing

The first tip for improving your time management is to identify what time you have available. 

Get into your calendar and block off the times that you already have scheduled for other activities. 

This will help you see the pockets of time that you have available to focus on your business. 

You might be surprised to find that you have 20-30 minutes here and there that you can use to build your business and stay consistent.

Really focus on the times that you have open.

Setting Specific, Realistic, and Time-Bound Goals in Network Marketing

It is important for you to identify your next goal or priority in your business, and you need to make sure these are specific, realistic, and time-bound goals. 

If you're just starting out, it's not realistic to expect to become a millionaire in 30 days. That's gonna take way longer than just 30 days, especially if you don't have the influence and the audience to pull from.

Maybe you wanna recruit three more people in 30 days. That would be a specific time bound and realistic goal if you're brand new. 

It's important to be super specific and let these goals build upon each other. We suggest focusing on your next 30 days to ensure that you are consistent and specific with what you're doing.

So it's important to identify your next priority in your business.

Breaking Down Goals into Manageable Tasks: How to Stay on Track

Another tip is to break your goals down into smaller, manageable tasks. This will make it easier to stay on track and ensure that you're making progress. 

By breaking your goals down into smaller tasks, you'll be able to focus on one thing at a time and make sure that you're working on the most important things first.

If you are unsure on what steps to take to get to where you need to be, meet up with your upline. Tell them what goals you want to reach and have them explain to you how you can get there. 

Break down your daily mode of operation. If you need 10 new recruits to hit that goal, what has to happen in the next 30 days every day for you to hit 10 recruits? 

This is something that you're going to have to test and evaluate.

Set Specific Times and Stick to Them

Set specific times during the day to work on different tasks, and stick to them as much as possible. 

This will help you stay on track and make sure that you're making progress on your goals.

If you get up at 6AM, you’re most likely going to work out, eat, get the kids up at 7AM, and then get to work by 8AM. 

There's not enough window in there for you to get some work done. 

So maybe instead you get up at 5AM and use that first hour to do the things that you need to do in your business, like growing your audience, engaging with your audience, creating content, or scheduling different things that need to happen. 

It's really important that you break these tasks down and stick them into your calendar, that's how you manage time.

We don't get more hours in the day. Everybody gets the same amount of time. It's what we do in those hours that helps us grow our business and the keys to stay consistent.

Scheduling Tasks and Activities: The Key to Staying Productive

It's important to schedule your tasks. 

That's the reason that we wanted to identify the time available, you've got to break down that DMO.

If the schedule says it's Wednesday and it's noon, and you need to do your live video, stick to the schedule. 

The boss made the schedule, you are the boss. And then take that boss hat off and wear the employee hat and do the work. 

This is where we really need to dial it in to grow our business and to create momentum in our businesses is staying consistent. 

Remember that life happens! Your day gets hijacked, your week gets hijacked. Maybe somebody gets sick, maybe you are sick, maybe a kid is home from school, and all the things change.

Build out a skeletal DMO to be prepared when things hit the fan.

Worry about right now what you can do in your business to move forward and make the best of it, and try to stay consistent as much as possible.

The Importance of Taking Regular Breaks in Network Marketing

Taking regular breaks is an important aspect of time management, as it allows you to recharge both physically and mentally.

It's easy to get caught up in your work and forget to take a break, but it's important to step away from your work and give your mind and body a rest. 

Making the time to step away from work-related activities and engage in activities that help you relax and recharge is vital. 

This could be anything from going for a walk, reading a book, doing some light stretching or yoga, or even just closing your eyes and taking a few deep breaths.

This will help you stay focused and be more productive when you return to your work.

Flexibility and Adaptability: The Secret to Success in Network Marketing

Give yourself some grace. Sometimes things are not gonna work out as planned, and that's okay. 

It doesn't mean your whole entire world is gonna end and you have to quit your business!

Don't get stuck in the past, pick up those tasks that didn’t get done and do them today, set that goal again. 

Prioritize what you're doing, put it into your calendar. Take action and give yourself grace when you mess up. 

Maybe an hour for lunch is not enough time for you, and so you’re going to have to adjust somewhere else. 

Maybe you can do some of your personal development in the car inside the traffic. 

Everybody's hours are going to look a little different depending on your schedule. 

Maybe you're a nurse and you work three nights of the week. And you don't build your business at all during those three nights because you are so drained from working that you can't possibly figure that out. 

Make it work for the week.

One of the best things you can ever do is plan your activities and make sure they focus on growth, engagement, and promotion. And you're doing those consistently and creating that ecosystem on social media and things will be so great in 30, 60, 90 days. 

You won't even recognize your business if you stay consistent.

Welcome to today’s episode of My name is Brandy Shaer. I’m one of the beaches here at, uh, beach Boss Influencers and I wanna share with you today our seven best tips for improving your time management in your network marketing business. Okay? So I’m excited about today’s topic because when I learned this skillset, everything changed for me. Cuz I’m the type of person that doesn’t like to be put in a box. I’m more of that entrepreneurial type that wants to do whatever I want, when I want it. If that’s you, let me know down below because, uh, it’s hard to get everything done and to do the things you need to do to get your business done if you’re like that, because it’s way more fun sometimes to go do laundry than to do things in your business, right? So let me know if that resonates with you at all.

But I’m excited about today’s topic because it’s mirror and dear to my heart. And when I changed things for me in my time management, my business totally exploded. So the first step that you wanna do, the first tip is to identify what time you have. Okay? So I know you probably might have already a career, right? Maybe you’re working eight to five, um, you know, maybe you have a shift at, uh, you know, you’re a nurse and you work nights or whatever. It’s really important for you to get into your calendar and you can use a paper calendar or you can use, um, you know, Google or whatever. I like Google Calendar, but you’re gonna block off those times that, um, that you have already scheduled, right? That you have something already going on because there’s things that you can’t change right now in your life to just focus on your business, right?

You’ve got kids, you’ve got, you know, taking care of yourself, all the responsibilities, but there are pockets in your life that you’re probably not aware of, and they don’t have to be huge pockets, right? All we need is 20 to 30 minutes here and there to build our businesses and to stay consistent at it. So that’s the first thing is to identify what time you have in your calendar, okay? And block that out. Really focus on the times that you have open, okay? So the next number two tip is to identify your next goal or your next priority in your business. Okay? Now this one’s a big one because it needs to be specific, it needs to be realistic, and it needs to be time-bound. Okay? Now, here’s what I mean by that. If you just started, let’s say you’re brand new, right? You just started in, in your business and you wanna be a millionaire in 30 days, okay?

That’s unrealistic. Okay? That’s not probably gonna happen. That’s gonna take way longer than just 30 days, especially if you don’t have the influence and the audience to pull from. So it’s important to identify your next priority in your business, okay? Maybe you wanna recruit three more people in 30 days, okay? That would be a specific time bound and realistic goal if you’re brand new. Now, if you are, you know, a million dollar earner already, is it realistic to say that you can go from a million to two in 30 days? It might be right? You just have to really understand how things work and keep it time bound specific and realistic, okay? Don’t say I’m gonna rank advance, okay? If you are maybe a pro, I don’t know, pro four and you’re going to a pro eight or whatever, right? That’s a, uh, more specific. Um, maybe you’re going from an ambassador to, you know, a director or whatever, right? Whatever it may be, an emerald to a diamond, whatever the, the language is in your company, just get specific in. I would do, um, your next 30 days, okay? This is how I plan out what I’m doing. I also do 90 days and then, um, year goals, and then I also do five and 10 years. But it’s important in all of those to be super specific and build upon each other. So for this seven best tips for improving your time management, I would suggest going for 30 days, okay? Because our number one issue in our businesses is that we are not consistent and we’re not specific with what we’re doing, and we’re all over the place.

All right? So this is really gonna help you. So get clear on what is it you want in your business in the next 30 days, and remember to be realistic, okay? Tip number three, what has to happen to get you there? Now, this is the part that you may wanna be like totally avoid because comp plans are not that much fun, you know, to understand. But let’s say you’re going from a ruby to an emerald, okay? In your company, well, there’s certain specific things that have to happen for you to do that, and it’s important for you to understand where you are, okay? So where you are and where you wanna go, hence the reason you need to know the goal first, the priority that’s going to happen next in your business, okay? Once you know what’s going to happen next in your business, then you’re going to work backwards to find out how do I get there?

Okay? If my volume is this and I need my volume to be this, do I need a certain personal, uh, number of recruits? Do I need certain leaders in my, in my organization to rank from Ruby to Emerald? Okay? So you kind of have to know if you don’t know, if you like comp plans hurt your brain, get with your upline and, um, you know, have them sit you down and say, look, this is what I want. I wanna go from, you know, my rank right now to this rank right now, right here, and I need you to explain what I need to do that, okay? Now, asking questions, getting clear. If you don’t have an upline, call your company, okay? Call your company. I know, um, in one of my companies that I was in, I was headed for this big goal, right? And I could not wrap my brain around, you know, reading the comp plan and understanding, you know, this and that and the other.

So I actually called the company and I was like, look, this is what I’m shooting for. This is the time that I wanna do it in, and this is where I am, right? They could see my numbers and stuff and they had somebody walk me through that process. And usually, you know, if it’s not somebody in customer support, it, um, could be, you know, somebody else inside the company. Just ask questions and figure out and get clear on what has to happen to get you there, okay? Now, this is where you break down your daily mode of operation. If you need 10 new recruits to hit that goal, what has to happen in the next 30 days every day for you to hit 10 recruits? Okay? And this is something that you’re going to have to test and evaluate, right? Some of us can close, 99% of people that we jump on a zoom call with them, you know, to talk to them about enrolling in our business.

Some of us are brand new and we can only close one out of 10. Some of us are even newer than that, and we can only close one out of 50. So it’s gonna kind of depend upon your numbers that you really understand what work has to go into that to hit that goal. Okay? So the next tip is break down those tasks into those time slots that we talked about, right? That’s the reason that we wanted to identify the time available, right there is because we’ve gotta break down that D M o, that daily mode operation that has to happen in our calendar. Okay? So let’s say I get up at 6:00 AM you know, I’m gonna work out, I’m gonna eat, I’m gonna get the kids up at seven, and you know, I’ve gotta be to work by eight. That’s probably not enough time.

There’s not enough window in there that for me to get some work done, okay? For me to do part of my D M L. Maybe I get up at five and I use that first hour to do the things that I need to do in my business, like growing my audience, engaging with my audience, creating the content, you know, scheduling different things that need to happen. But the point is, is you can take those blocks of time and really understand, okay, is it realistic to think I can get up at six and have the kids to school by eight and still have some, you know, half an hour or an hour in there that I can get my work done? No, I’d have to get up an hour earlier. Well, now I’m aware that that’s what needs to happen, right? Then I go to work at eight, let’s say, and then I have a, a lunch break from 12 to one.

Well, that’s another part that I can actually work part of my business. Let’s get real right? Doesn’t take you an hour to eat your lunch so you can take some time while you’re eating and instead of scrolling through your phone, right? And absorbing content and all the things you’re building your business intentionally during that time. So now we’ve done from five to six to build our business, and we’ve done from, you know, maybe 1230 to one, we’ve put an hour and a half in our business already. Maybe we’ve grown our business engaged with our business and posted already by the time noon comes around, right? So then after work, maybe I get off at five, I’m in traffic till six, right? We have to do dinner, kids reading all the things that we have to do, right? Maybe throw in a load of laundry, the kids go to bed by 9, 9 30.

Okay, that’s awesome. There’s another chunk of time, right? That I can, um, work my business there maybe nine 30 to 10 30, right? It’s important you’re getting enough sleep, but it’s really important that you break these tasks down and stick ’em into your calendar, and that’s how you manage time, right? We don’t get more hours in the day, everybody’s the same, whether you’re a billionaire or you are homeless on the street, right? Everybody gets the same amount of time. It’s what we do in those hours that helps us grow our business and the keys to stay consistent. All right? So the fifth tip is to stick to the schedule. Okay? I know there are days that you get up and you’re like, oh my gosh, if I have to, you know, do another live video or whatever, I’m going to punch myself in the face, , right?

I’ve been there. How many of you have been there? Let me know. But it’s important for us to stick to the schedule. If the schedule says it’s Wednesday and it’s noon, and you need to do your live video, stick to the schedule. Okay? The boss made the schedule, you are the boss. And then take that boss hat off and wear the employee hat and do the work. Okay? This is where we really need to dial it in to grow our business and to create momentum in our businesses is staying consistent. If I can shake that into you, you’ll be in a totally different place if you just stay consistent with even an hour and a half building your business test and evaluate, right? Sometimes you’re gonna put this stuff in your calendar and you’re gonna be like, okay, I’m awesome. Right? I got this figured out.

Let me know if you’ve ever felt like that. Okay, I’m doing it. It’s great. I’m, I’m doing all the things and you’ve got, you know, all the things scheduled and things going great, and then life happens. Your day gets hijacked, your week gets hijacked. Maybe somebody gets sick, maybe you are sick, maybe a kid is home from school, and all the things change, right? It’s just important for you to, and this is a bonus tip to build out a skeletal D m o a skeletal d m o that it means like a what you’re gonna do in that, in that instance, okay? Be prepared when things hit the fan, right? You’re going to be prepared, all right, my day got hijacked. What can I do to possibly build my business? All right? So skeletal d m o would be an example, like, you know, connect with three people, do a live video once a week if your week gets hijacked.

Uh, it’s just important to really focus on grow, engage, and promote inside your business daily. Okay? Now, if that doesn’t happen, pick it up the next day. Don’t live in the past in the story, okay? That’s, that’s another issue that happens with a lot of us is we’re like, oh, well, you know, I didn’t do it yesterday, so I might as well just give up, right? No, today, right now, when can you change? Now it’s now you have to just move on. Don’t get stuck in that story in the past, right? Worry about right now what you can do in your business to move forward and make the best of it, and try to stay consistent as much as possible. All right? So the seventh tip is give yourself some grace. Sometimes things are not gonna work out as planned, and that’s okay. It doesn’t mean your whole entire world is gonna end and you have to quit your business, okay?

It means, just like I said, don’t get stuck in the past, what we did yesterday. Pick it up today, set that goal again. Prioritize what you’re doing, put it into your calendar. Take action and give yourself grace when you mess up. Right? Maybe an hour for lunch is not enough time for you. Maybe you’re going to have to adjust somewhere else, right? Maybe you can do some of her personal development in the car inside the traffic. Maybe dinner’s at seven and you have that moment from, you hit the, hit the six o’clock to the house from six to seven, right? Everybody’s gonna look at a little different depending on your schedule. Maybe you’re a nurse and you work three nights of the week, right? And you don’t build your business at all during those three nights because you like, are so brain dead from working that you can’t possibly even, you know, figure that out. Make it work for the week. What has to happen for that week to get it done? All right? So if you have any questions, I hope this helps. One of the best things you can ever do is plan your, um, your activities and make sure they’re in grow, engage, and promote. And you’re doing those consistently and creating that ecosystem on social media and things will be so great in 30, 60, 90 days. You won’t even recognize your business if you stay consistent. So let me know if you have any questions and we’ll see you next time. Bye-bye.
