Interested in freeing up more time? You’ll need to figure out how to create leverage in your daily life.
We could all use more of it but unfortunately time is the one thing that can only be spent and not earned.
So how do we get more leverage?
Leverage happens when a person finds a way to free up their time and accomplish more simultaneously. This usually happens when we can find a way to implement the use of a system.
If you’re working in a 9-5 job, there’s usually very little leverage within the position because there is a fixed hourly rate or salary.
However, if you’re an entrepreneur, or engage in entrepreneurial activities, you can create leverage by delegating tasks and creating systems that eliminate the need for your direct involvement…
My Favorite Example of How to Create Leverage
My favorite example of how to create leverage is the example of selling digital products online.
You or I can create the product once, and then simply drive traffic to an offer and make 100% pure incremental profit. This is an example of a SYSTEM that creates 100% leverage… the product sells one unit or one million units… it’s the same amount of effort! I LOVE IT!
Even better is to sell someone else’s product online and take a commissions… this is known as affiliate marketing and is a really powerful way of making money by just doing what you love.. (blogging :))
Those who’ve been following me for a while know I’m a business school grad and that a lot of the people I graduated with actually went on to work in corporate jobs…
… I, on the other hand, was looking for something different… I was looking for a way I could live more.
This led me to invest in real estate and then eventually led me to internet marketing where I began to blog to drive traffic and sell affiliate products.
It’s rewarding because I get to provide value and help people and it also allows me create an income!
Best of all… I can put up content and have it attract traffic from the search engines in the long term.
