Beyond the Image Podcast

Jan 19, 2022

It is about time we did a podcast discussing time.

A couple years ago, I was going through this exercise with a business coach and what he made me do was to write down all the hours I worked in a single year. From photoshoots to cleaning toilets in my office. That number was quite shocking. Then he said to take the amount of money I made in that year and divide the number of hours by the amount of money I made. That is the amount of money I made per hour and that number shocked me, not in a good way.

I started to wonder what I did wrong and how I allowed the business to start running me. This was a rude awakening that led me to shifting how I managed my time within my business. Let’s dive into this!
