Day 3231 – Secret To Success – Create A Job

My original plan for today was International VA day…unfortunately, that is Friday, but I thought I’d carry on this Secret To Success series. Today I want to talk about creating your own job. When I started the work I’m doing now, I was still photographing weddings. For a number of reasons, I was not doing well in generating income. In some of the books I read around that time, they mentioned creating your own job. One of the things I do now is a mostly virtual assistant position for several business owners. It all came about because I casually mentioned that I love the business side of things.

As I’ve learned more about myself and my skills over the past few years, I realized I really do thrive with administrative and organizing skills. And truthfully, I actually kind of love it. I’m thankful for what I can bring to our real estate investing business in how I’ve organized things and ensure our different systems run smoothly and quickly.

So, if you want to create a job, look at the skills that come naturally to you. Sometimes this can be hard to see in yourself, so ask those around you. What you can do doesn’t come naturally to everyone. And don’t downplay your skills. I think that held me back for too long.

Then, go out and find the folks that need your unique skills.

What about you, have you created a job?

Day 3230 – Secret To Success – Get A Good Night Sleep And Get Up Stupid Early

One thing that has helped us over the last year or so is getting a good night of sleep. We’ve also continued to get up stupid early. Most days, we’re out of bed by 5:00/5:30. It’s crazy how much you can accomplish by 9:00 when you get up that early. I’ve added a number of things into my morning routine, but I still have time to do it all because of getting up early.

Getting a good night sleep and having a great day starts the night before. We spend time expressing our thankfulness about our life, cuddling, and enjoying each other’s presence (it seriously rocks being married to your best friend….and working with your best friend). We also try to write out our to do lists the night before. It really helps your brain to know what the next day will bring, and to shut off “work brain” by writing things down.

We also try to get to sleep at a reasonable hour…we’re typically in bed by 8:30/9:00. Sure, it’s not super exciting, but the things we have accomplished over the past few months and years far outweigh the “this is a ‘boring’ life” thoughts.
