Online success is not all it’s cracked up to be. With it comes the biggest burden of all: requests for your time.
“You can have my freaking money; you know what, you can have my art; you can have my advice for free (I don’t care) but what I realized is you can’t have my time”
When I had this epiphany, I made the decision to start saying no to meetings. Meetings come disguised like the Big Bad Wolf out of Red Riding Hood as the following:
· Podcast interviews
· Coffee Catch ups
· Phone calls
· Product demonstrations
· Joining Slack/Messenger/WhatsApp groups
· I’m in town and don’t know you, but we should catch up”
All of these demands of my time started to add up. Five minutes here. Ten minutes there. Before I knew it, my dream to inspire the world through entrepreneurship and personal development looked dead as a dodo.
