Today's episode is the result of a very sad event that has happened. One of my Virtual Assistants passed away on September 29th.
This is something that really hit me hard. She had been with me for about a year and a half and was great at what she did. She took care of all of the tech stuff for me so that I didn't have to do it.
Listen to This Episode
It's interesting – I found out about it on the same day I posed my interview with Chris Ducker about outsourcing. In that interview he told me that it's virtually impossible to find someone that does what she did in the Philippines. I was a lucky guy to have her.
This really got me thinking about what's REALLY important when it comes to not just building my online business but also in life. What is my most valuable asset? I've come to realize that my most valuable asset (and also yours) is TIME!
Inside this episode
First I take a call from Warren Gibbons from Salt Water Aquarium Secrets where he makes the suggestion for me to take the questions that are called into the hotline and create a Q&A section on the blog that catalogues those questions and my answers. It's a great suggestion, but I decided not to do it. Find out why in the episode.
Then I get into the main content where I cover the following:
- Why TIME is your most valuable asset
- 2 Important questions you should answer
- What the very few things are that I will be focusing my time on in my online business
- The most common time wasters for bloggers
- What to do about those time wasters
- Setting your priorities
If time is so valuable, then we need to start treating it that way. That's exactly what I'm focusing on doing right now, and I encourage you to do the same.
- The Become A Blogger Facebook Page – Where I will be interacting with you and the rest of the Become a Blogger community.
- Saltwater Aquariums Explained and Saltwater Aquarium Secrets – Warren Gibbon's sites
