Sneak Peek Inside Our 10 Hour Work Week Schedule
Network Marketing Success | Sneak Peek Inside the 10 Hour Work Week Schedule That's Created a 6-Figure Business
Success in your business isn't about having tons of time, it's about what you do with the time you have. Isn't that good news!
When we first got started in network marketing, we were told anyone could be successful if they could dedicate 10 focused hours a week to their business… so that's what we did!
In this week’s episode we're sharing the 10 hour work week schedule that has helped us create a 6-figure business, and showing you how to create your own so you can create success too!
In each episode of Coffee with K&J we like to provide you with a powerful free resource to help you get the most out of what we cover together.
Today we're sharing our Ideal Week Workbook, which you can use to plan out YOUR ideal weekly calendar, so you can build your business without having to sacrifice the things that are most important to you!
We are big believers in designing a lifestyle that you love, then scheduling your business to fit around that lifestyle… and that's what we show you how to do in this episode! You can download the workbook absolutely free by clicking on the button above, or just click here.
We want to preface this episode with a disclaimer: there have been (many) seasons in our network marketing business over the past 15 years where we did work more than 10 hours a week. In the beginning, when we was just learning, we spent a lot of time just in TRAINING mode, but also had to schedule time for activity so we could get results quickly.
Anytime we've implemented new strategies, done a launch or a blitz, we've worked more than 10 hours — it takes longer to execute when you are learning something new, and the results you can generate by running full out for 90 days can and will pay you for years to come.
That being said, it IS possible to work your business just 10 hours a week and still get results. If you're just starting out and want to go faster, be prepared to put in more time. But if that's all you have, we're here to tell you it is enough.
These days, now that we have our prospecting & recruiting systems all in place and have become better at executing the skills, we work our business just about an hour a day, 5 days a week. To get our 4-Step Daily Routine and see the tools we use to automate much of our prospecting process to make this possible… check out this free training here.
Network Marketing Success | Your 10 Hour Weekly Schedule
Professional Development (Training): 2 Hours a Week
This includes things like corporate & team calls, watching training videos, completing courses, etc.
Networking: 30 Minutes, 5 Days a Week (2.5 Hours)
This includes activities like making new friends, engaging in your newsfeed, and chatting in messenger
Inviting: 15 Minutes, 5 Days a Week (1.25 Hours)
This is literally JUST the invitation! We recommend sending 2 business invites through messenger, 5 days a week. Anything that happens after that invite (like if they say yes!) is considered follow up!
Follow Up: 30 Minutes, 5 Days a Week (2.5 Hours)
This is where you want to be spending a big bulk of your time. Adding people to groups, following up with people in your funnel, and touching base with those who haven't made a decision yet!
Social Media Content: 1.5 Hours a Week
We plan our social media content in about 30 minutes each Sunday, then posting each week is super quick! 1.5 hours gives you enough time to do a live video each week if you want to!
As you can see, this entire schedule comes out to 9.75 Hours… or just under 10 hours a week!
Network Marketing Success | Are You Just Working, or Are You Producing?
You'll find you have no trouble getting everything done in your network marketing business each week if you do two things: time block and produce.
First, let's talk about time blocking: We work our business in 30 minute or 1 hour time blocks, depending on the day and what activities we're focusing on in that time. People will tell you that you can fit your business into the “nooks and crannies” of your day… and while that may be true for some people, we've found we are infinitely more productive if we put time blocks on our calendar and have specific tasks listed out for each block of time. Even better? Working in time blocks keeps us from feeling like we are constantly working, or need to be glued to our phone 24/7!
Now let's talk about producing: There is a HUGE difference between sitting down to “work on your business” vs sitting down to produce a specific result. So often we sit down to work our business and end up wasting half an hour doing busy work… scrolling the newsfeed & messenger, watching random live videos, checking our email, etc… then we tell people we “worked our business for an hour today” but have absolutely nothing to show for it!
We want to challenge you to set a timer and sit down each day to create a specific result in your business: send 5 messages, invite 2 people, follow up with each person on your to do list, etc. This will help you 10x your productivity, and eliminate a lot of time you spend doing “busy work” without creating real results.
Passive Activities vs Active Activities
When sitting down to work our business each day we always start with the ACTIVE activities that will make us money. These income producing activities are networking, inviting, following up and enrolling. They are the lifeblood of your business, and without them you won't have a very nice paycheck at the end of the month.
Passive activities are also important — things like creating Facebook posts and working on training or resources for your team. But here's the thing — without the ACTIVE activities you are simply wasting your time. Do your active activities FIRST, then use what time you have left to work on the passive activities that are also important to your business.
