Employee and Entrepreneur?
Do you have a full-time job and provide loan closings or mobile notary services?
If you do, that’s great; we’re going to talk about how you can create balance with the two. If you don’t, that’s okay too, hopefully, this article will give you some tips so that you don’t feel overwhelmed providing notary services full time.
First, let’s talk about how I define balance, it’s not about making time to do what you want, it’s about doing what you want with the time that you have.
A typical day for someone who works a full-time job might include:
- Get kids ready for school/daycare
- Appointments before work
- Go to work
- Appointments after work
- Make dinner (optional)
- Homework and get kids ready for bed
A typical day for someone who works as a full-time notary might include:
- Breakfast/go to the office
- Early morning appointment
- Late morning appointment
- Lunch/meetings (optional)
- Early afternoon appointment
- Late afternoon appointment
- Dinner/accounting (optional)
- Early evening appointment
- Late evening appointment
- Planning for the next day
Both require you to spend time on the road, in traffic, possibly missing meals and time away from family. Both have the stress of dealing with customers (internal or external) but working as a full-time notary you can choose not to work with clients that might bring you additional stress. Both have their rewards because you are doing what you want to do and on your terms.
I’m curious to know if you work full time, what’s keeping you from leaving your job to work your business full time (especially if you’re in a situation where you like your job)? If you already provide services as a notary full time, why did you start?
Success is what you make it, you define it in your terms!
