Video Episode Transcription
Hello everyone. Its Jessica Fillmore. I hope you're having a great day, wherever you're watching from. In this video, I'm going to share with you three ways that you can create more time for yourself and get more support.
The reason why I wanted to create this video is because a while back, I had a friend and we were having a conversation. She was asking me what I did that day and I was talking to her about the projects I was working on, and how I created several marketing videos that day. She just kind of looked at me and was like, "How are you getting this done? How are you able to do these things? She's like, I could barely get through the day, get myself dressed, get my kids fed."
She just felt really overwhelmed. She was a mom and she felt like she was stuck in the day to day, and couldn't see how she could create more time for herself or be able to pursue anything other than her day to day activities.
I think this is an important conversation to have because sometimes as women, we feel like we're supposed to do it all, or we feel guilty if we get any type of support or help. And I just feel like that's complete nonsense. I don't feel that women should feel any guilt around getting the support that they need to create what they want to create or become who they want to become, or achieve what they want to achieve.
I believe that we all have the right to be supported in all areas of our life. And so, I'm going to share with you three ways that you can free up more of your time and get the support that you need.
These are things that have been really helpful for me, in my business because I used to think that the more I, pursued or the bigger my business became, that it just meant more stress or more things on my plate, when really, so far, it has done the opposite.
It has created more freedom, more income for our family. And I've been able to delegate and get the support that I need and it feels really amazing. So I want to share with you these three ways. The first thing is, well first you need to take an inventory of how you're spending your time.
Where are your hours going in the day? And you can do this by getting a piece of paper and just writing down every hour of the day. And what are you doing during those hours of your day? And so just take inventory of how you're spending your time and then look at the activities that are taking up some of your time and ask yourself, am I the only one that can do this? Or can I delegate this to someone else? Can I get support in this area? So here are the three tips.
The first one is getting a cleaner. This has been totally life changing for me because I used to spend so much time cleaning up after my kids, cleaning up the household, all these things, right? That take up hours out of my week and I don't focus on that anymore.
We hire a cleaning service that comes and cleans our home monthly and it's amazing. They take care of everything. I don't even have to worry about those tasks and I'm able to do other things with my time, that I would rather do. The second thing is sharing and delegating tasks. So if you are someone who is married or if you have children or maybe you have a roommate, maybe you have other people that you live with, take a look at the things that need to be done and ask how can we share this? How can we share the load?
Maybe you can assign different tasks to different people, as well as yourself. That helps take a lot off of your plate. That is another thing that is very, very helpful. So the third thing is getting an assistant, getting a virtual assistant. I know I have hired a virtual assistant before. I'm looking for a new one this year, but that is something that can take up a lot of time off of your plate as well. If you have an assistant who can do some of the day to day tasks that maybe aren't super high level but they require time, this is a great way to free yourself to create more time and you can be earning more money.
You can be doing other things with your time that can maybe move you closer to what it is that you want to accomplish. So these are three things that have been really helpful for me and this is what we're doing and how I'm able to create and do and grow my business is by getting support.
And I don't feel any guilt about it because I feel like it's necessary and it's needed. And the more support that I feel, the more risks I feel like I wanna take and the bigger I can grow my business. So hopefully these are helpful for you as well. And let me know what you think.
