“If you treat it like a business, it will pay you like a business. If you treat it like a hobby, it will pay you like a hobby.”
Start with a weekly calendar, one that includes hourly markings. Block off your set time commitments, whether work, family, or community. Circle the times you have available for this project, even one hour at a time. Assign work to the circled time blocks, starting with your income producing activities.
The opposite is to treat it like a hobby: to work on it when you feel like, or whenever you find time.
It’s up to you. Do you want a new business, or do you want a hobby?
