How to Master the 9-5 to 5-9er LIFE
What is a 9-5 to 5-9er? This is an individual who has a full time job (9-5) and after work, works full time for their side hustle or start up business (5-9).
This population consists of a large group of people from various demographics and geographical areas. I for one have been doing this double duty for 3 years. In those three years I’ve changed jobs, gotten a Doctoral degree, received a Six Sigma Certification, wrote a book, travelled, and started 1 more businesses! Here are a few tips that help me stay 110% efficient and AMAZEBALLS in the 9-5 to 5-9 realm.

1) TIME MANAGEMENT is a MAJOR KEY. No, really. I have a set schedule that tells me what I am supposed to be doing when I’m supposed to be doing it. Do I always stay on schedule? No, but if I don’t, then I miss a deadline for a resume client or a major deadline at work which is unacceptable. So I do my best to stay on point.
2) FACTOR in time to relax and rejuvenate. THIS IS A MUST! If you don’t factor this in your health and sanity will take a toll.
3) DELEGATE. If you have the funds hire an assistant (virtual assistants are the new thing!) and a social media manger. My social media recommendation is Ericka Dukes, Founder of Social Ink Co. www.socialinkco.com. If you don’t have the funds take heed to #1 and for your social media presence create and stick to a posting schedule.
4) POSITIVE VIBES ONLY. Keep the squares out of your circle. Only keep positive energy around you! During this time of innovative ideas, tedious tasks, worked nerves; you need an overflow of positive energy!
5) Lastly, DO BOTH UNTIL YOU CAN'T DO BOTH ANYMORE. S/o to Erica Heyward at the Ultimate Tax Experience http://www.theultimatetaxexperience.com/ for that tidbit of knowledge. If you find yourself a) turning down clients and/or b) generating enough profit to NOT need the cushion of your 9-5 go for it.
