Blog? Where Does the Time Go?

Blog versus Business

Who has the time?

I mean seriously, who has time to blog every week???  I just realized it had been over a month since my last post.  Its not that I haven’t thought about it, guiltily.  I have a list of around 20 blog subjects I could probably sit down and write about in 30 minutes.  Yes I have that much time, and so do you.  So why haven’t I?

Let’s be honest the idea of blogging is not that overwhelming.  I have the ideas for the blog already written down.  I love what I do so it should be easy to write about it, right?  Well yes and no.  I can throw out a decent blog in a little bit of time, but is there any value in that? Does it add any value to my site, or is it just another blog post?

There are a couple of different ways that you can get started in your own business.  One type of person just always dreams of working for themselves.  Another creates a new way to solve a problem that everyone has and struggles to try and meet the demand for their product of service.  The early days are rough for either person.  What if you were your own consultant?  What advice would you give yourself for starting out?

I would say the first is to set some goals.  They don’t have to be monumental tasks, no need to end world hunger week 1.

They should be specific goals though. […]

Small business ownership

Ah the joys and sorrows of starting and owning your own business.  The nice thing about working for someone else is that you do not have to consider things like payroll or taxes.  As a business owner myself I have seen many compatriots fall prey to those pesky little things that can stop you dead […]
