Must-Have Entrepreneur Skills: Time Management

It’s time for another post in the Entrepreneur Skills Series. This one focuses yet another must-have skill…


You may have already read an earlier post, where I cover 5 tips for Effective Time Management. If you didn’t, make sure to check it out after you read this post. Effective time management is a skill that most of us are not necessarily born with, rather a quality that we can improve in ourselves with the proper training if so desired. In other words, if you think you lack in this area, do something about it! We all have room for improvement, so make a plan and take action to better yourself and your time management skills. If you need help in this area, make sure to check out that earlier blog post that I mentioned for some tips!

If you let time get away from you, you will have a hard time starting a successful business. Your calendar should be your best friend and one of your most valuable tools in the business. Learn to prioritize and plan.  Utilize a timer to help stay on task. Stop wasting time with things that are not positive, like gossip, paparazzi, and the like.

There is a common saying that you make time for what you want to make time for, and I really believe that to be true. Back when I was in the fitness industry, I often had clients tell me they didn’t have time to work out, no time to eat right, etc. Really? Does it take any longer to eat a salad than it does to eat a cheeseburger? Having no time to work out is simply a matter of poor scheduling and wasting time on less important things than your health. The point of this fitness analogy is this: If you want to succeed in business, you must make time for it, simple as that.

Do you struggle with time management in your life? I would love to hear your concerns in the comments… let’s start the conversation!

  1. This is a great post Holly! As a SAHM of a 1 and 2 year and trying to manage a blog and start up small businesses time management is definitely an area that I am struggling with! I do spend a lot of time wasted so I just need to find effective ways to manage everything! Unfortunately being home with two toddlers all day that may or may not want to nap, it does prove to be a challenge 🙂

  2. Time management skills are critical when running a business. So much to do in such a little time. I tend to write down all the things I need to get done daily on my schedule. That way, if I don’t finish all of the things, I can still see it the next day when I open my calendar. As much as I love social media, it can be a time pit if you don’t set a timer for it. 🙂
