How to Achieve Time Freedom: A 3-Step Rescue Plan

February 05, 20245 min read

Have you ever felt like your business is swallowing you whole? Like your head is just above water and you’re barely staying afloat.

Have you skipped vacations for YEARS because if you left your team and your business, even for a day, everything would fall apart?

Are you at the point where you’re wondering if it’s worth it?

All the sacrifices you’ve made for your business, for your clients over the years?

All the stress and anxiety?

The lack of a personal life, of free time, stressing out trying to make your kids conferences in the middle of the day or working on weekends instead of working out?

I hear you. 💜

And trust me, you're not alone. I've met SO MANY entrepreneurs struggling with the same overwhelm.

In fact, I’m going to share a secret with you.

For the last 15 years, I’ve been working as a business integrator for virtual small businesses.  They have the biggest hearts and the biggest drive to make an impact in their clients lives and to make a difference in the world.  (While also creating a healthy income for themselves).  Many of them are 7-Figure + businesses.

And all of them, every single one, are a hot mess on the back end.  They’re buried under the pressure, the responsibilities and they’re being pulled in a million different directions.

And I bet you know them.  They look like they have it all together, like they’ve figured it out.

They haven’t.

Their business is just like a cluttered closet where everything is everywhere. Eventually you’ll find what you’re looking for but it takes forever and by moving everything around, you’ve just made it harder on yourself when you go to find the next thing.

Sound familiar?

The truth is, the path to achieving time freedom lies in addressing the chaos head-on. By cleaning out the proverbial closet.

But how?

Here is the 3-Step Time Freedom Rescue Plan

1. Get Clarity

It’s time to get honest about where you are in your business.  Imagine pulling everything out of the closet and spreading it all around the room, we’re able to see exactly what we’ve got.  What’s working and what’s not.  Many of my clients have unhealthy and inefficient business practices that they’re doing on a DAILY basis.  If you ONLY clean these inefficiencies up, and do nothing else, it will make an immediate and significant impact on your time freedom.  This step takes bravery and courage though.  My clients are often uncomfortable and embarrassed when they see how far they’ve let things slip, but the only way to get to the other side is to go through.  You’ll need to commit to bringing everything out into the light so that you can identify where to start.

2. Embrace Systems & Tools

There are incredible tools out there designed to streamline and automate your work. Tools like Monday.com will help you and your team to get and stay in alignment.  Think of it as installing shelves and organizers in your closet so that everything has a place and everyone knows exactly where to retrieve what they need- so they have what they need, when they need it.  An added bonus is that you have a birds eye view of all aspects of the business.  You can see what everyone is working on at any given time.  Can you imagine the time you would get back (not to mention the brain space you would clear up) if you didn’t have to keep everything and everyone moving?  You didn’t have to follow up with team members so they hit their deadlines, that you didn’t have to answer a million questions every single day?  The tech tools we have available to us now can free up SO MUCH of our time if used in the right way.  Embrace the tech and set up your automations.

3. Master the Art of Delegation

This is often the hardest step for many of my clients- but it’s also the step that can free up the most time for you as well. But delegating effectively means trusting your team with tasks that you don’t need to micromanage. It's like asking someone to help you organize that closet, knowing they'll do it just as well as you would.  If you’re one of those people who thinks that nobody can do it better than you, I hear you.  But it’s just not true.  Delegating while still maintaining control and quality is achievable.  If you’re not sure where to start when delegating, I recommend starting with the admin tasks.

I challenge you to delegate 1 task to a team member today. Make it something simple.  Something that you can easily teach and get off your plate immediately.  (Even 5 minutes saved is an additional 5 minutes of time freedom!)

You might be thinking, "Sure, all of this is easier said than done, right?" I hear you.

Creating time freedom is no small feat. But here's where I can help.

Through the Business Alignment Method program, I've helped numerous business owners go from feeling overwhelmed and overworked to achieving an aligned business and an aligned team that runs smoothly and efficiently.  Giving both the owner and the team some much needed time back for themselves.
