5 Tips For Building A Profitable Online Business When You Still Have A Job

Published by 55 Comments

Leslie Samuel has contributed this article on a topic I know nothing about because I’ve never had a full time job in my life. Leslie on the other hand has been an incredibly productive guy, starting up an Internet business on the side while he maintains his full time job. Here’s his advice on how to juggle the two roles…

Time is MoneyOne of the most common entrepreneur dreams I hear deals with being free from the “9 to 5”. The term “9 to 5” almost seems to carry a certain stigma. It almost seems as if it’s looked at as a curse word in certain circles of entrepreneurs – a term that you definitely shouldn’t say if the kids are around.

As appealing as this “lifestyle of freedom” may be, for many of us, it’s just not a current reality. There are bills to pay, kids to feed, significant others to wine and dine, and the list goes on. Not only that (and forgive me for saying this), but some people even love their jobs. Yes, it’s true! I’m actually one of those crazy individuals that enjoy what I do and I’m not really looking to leave my job at the moment (although I do see that changing in the future).

I’m a High School science and Math teacher who enjoys teaching and interacting with my students. However, I’m also an entrepreneur at heart, and as a result of that, I’ve found myself blogging (with two active blogs), running a network of 6 Incentivized Freebie websites and a forum with over 35,000 members (recently sold), among other things.

Because of my situation, I usually receive the following questions on a regular basis.

  • How in the world do you manage to run a profitable online business while having a full time job?
  • Is it even possible to do both effectively?
  • Does your family suffer?
  • Are you insane?

Well, to tell you the truth, I’ve never done this perfectly. There have been times where I’ve completely mismanaged my time and was very unproductive. However, in an effort to achieve balance in my life, I’ve managed to come to a point where I feel as if I’m able to manage my time well, get lots done and still have a significant amount of down time.

What I’d like to do here is share 5 tips that I’ve learned to help me achieve balance.

Tip #1: Focus On The Important Stuff And Get Rid Of The Excess Fat

While growing my online business, I came to a point where I was extremely stressed out. It seemed as if there wasn’t enough time to accomplish my goals. My family suffered and so did my job. My wife started complaining that I wasn’t spending enough time with her, and my students started complaining that their grades weren’t being updated fast enough.

I then decided to take inventory of EVERYTHING I did on a daily basis. When I did this, I received the shock of my life. Yes, I was busy, but a large majority of what I did was unnecessary stuff.

The next step was to establish priorities. I realized that there were a of things that I did in my business that actually resulted in increased profits. At that point, I decided to focus only on those things and work on eliminating the rest.

What also surprised me was the amount of things I did at work that didn’t contribute to my productivity on the job. Yes, some of those things were necessary evils. I decided to eliminate the unnecessary things I did on my job and delegate some of the other tasks to my student workers.

The end result was that I started spending less time working, but ended up being more productive.

Tip #2: Have 1 Goal At A Time

There’s a common myth that has been spreading like wildfire. It says that in order to accomplish a lot, you have to multitask. I used to think that I got a lot done when I did a lot of things simultaneously. In fact, I tend to suffer from what I like to call entrepreneurial ADD, where I’d constantly jump from task to task.

In the past, when I start up my Internet browser, 6 of the websites I regularly check would pop up instantly, My facebook alerts would instantly turn on, my instant messenger program would automatically connect and within 2 or 3 clicks, I’d be ready to “take on the world”. As you can imagine, the result was constant information overload and high levels of inefficiency.

Yes, it’s important to get rid of the excess fat. However, even with all that stuff gone, the remainder can be quite overwhelming. The solution is simple – Do one thing at a time, until the one thing is complete. At that point, move on to the next.

Shut down instant messenger. Stop checking your email every few minutes. You aren’t getting anything done. Decide on a goal and spend the majority of your time focusing on that goal alone. You’d be surprised at how much you can get done when you intentionally try to do less.

Tip #3: Learn To Give Up Control

Yeah, I know – If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself, right? WRONG!

I’m a very picky guy when it comes to attaching my name to a product, website or anything else. Because of that, I tend to be the kind of person who wants to oversee everything, and if possible, do everything. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), time is a very limited commodity. It’s necessary to give up control and let others share the load.

After running a forum with tens of thousands of members for a few months, I finally decided to bring a community manager on board. Guess what happened as a result! Many of the things that were once overlooked due to lack of time started happening. I also had significantly more time on my hands.

When I made the decision to stop designing all of my websites and graphics, I came to the realization that there were many individuals out there that were able to do a much better job than I could at a very reasonable price.

Tip #4: Automation Is Your Friend

One of the things I LOVE so much about the Internet and running an online business is that, if done well, automation can be an effective tool for nurturing relationships with your followers and growing your online business. In some ways, automation can make things seem more natural, as contradictory as that might sound.

One of the best decisions I’ve made since starting my online business is starting newsletters using Aweber. However, I didn’t use it to just send content. I used it to nurture relationships with my subscribers to where they felt as if they were getting to know me as a real person. Before using this method, I had a bunch of template emails that I would send out to my followers. That switch ended up saving me a TON of time and ended up allowing me to offer better support.

Tip #5: Know When To Cut Something Loose

If you implement the above 4 tips effectively, you will save lots of time. However, it’s very possible that there will come a point where you need to cut something loose. For me, this was when I made the decision to sell my forum and network of Freebie Sites.

I realized that I was spreading myself a little too thin and a decision had to be made. The forum had started doing very well. I had grown it from 10,000 members when I purchased it to over 35,000 members within a year. However, my interest started shifting to other projects I was working on and cutting it loose allowed me to focus more on those things and accomplish more.

Bonus Tip

Make sure you enjoy what you are doing. Why are you doing what you are currently doing? I imagine that for many of you, financial freedom is high on your list of priorities. However, if what you are doing is more a chore than something you love, then you might as well be working a “9 to 5”, and I mean that in the derogatory way that I started this post talking negatively about.

Because I love what I do, it doesn’t seem like work to me. I get paid to have fun and to help others. Can it get any better than that? In my opinion, absolutely not!

I’m not perfect, nor do I claim to perfectly implement all of the above-mentioned tips. However, the more I move towards implementing those steps, the more I accomplish while not being overwhelmed with what I’m doing.

Are there things you have implemented that allow you to be more efficient in your online business? Please share them by leaving them in the comments section below. We can ALL benefit from shared wisdom :)

  • I would say automation is the best thing for me. I really like to automate as much as possible.

  • I am stuggling to get a clear cut “Howe-to” for a new blog to make money online except for puttting in elbow grease and working hard, practicing pateince. Haven’t really gotten too much to show in the form of great success or traffic. However, my blog is only a month old.

    I think this is a relevant article http://authopublisher.com/2010/09/09/how-to-achieve-your-dream-while-in-a-9-5/

    Hope it adds value and to the discussion :)

  • Hey Leslie!

    It’s so nice to “meet” – a fellow duel-job-worker! I’m in a life situation that’s pretty much like the one you described. I also work full time in a 9-5 job and I’ve been building my online business on the side for a while now.

    I currently have one main blog (Nomad Couch) that I write and I’m launching another one in December. I also run a few niche sites and I run a Finnish community of Location Independent Entrepreneurs through few different forums.

    The tips you gave are absolutely essential. Not just for people who work “2 jobs” but for every online entrepreneur out there. For me personally, Focusing (combined with doing just 1 thing at a time) has been the most important “realization” that I’ve made with my own online business. I definitely know the feeling when you try to do a million things at a time while trying to convince yourself that “this is the best way to achieve results”. Wrong. Focus on one thing at a time and complete it – Very true.

    Thanks for this great article. Would be great to chat someday and share experiences!

    Keep on focusing!
    Juha

    • Hi Juha,

      Nice to meet you too. You sound just as crazy as I do ;)

      You are absolutely right. Focusing is important whether you have a day job or not.

      Keep on chugging along. It’s a fun Journey!

      Leslie

      • Yeah, I believe a certain amount of craziness is a requirement for doing things this way! But I guess that’s just the entrepreneurial spirit kickin’ in! Won’t be too long it takes me over completely.. I’m sure! ;)

        Franck below said it well; “if you are trying to launch your own business being an employee, you can add 2 hours in your daily activities”. I second that. And you absolutely HAVE TO allocate that time every day, if you plan to actually accomplish something. I really like to plan my upcoming week ahead on the weekend and then go straight after my weekly goals when the new week arrives.

        It’s much like having a weekly workout plan. This on Monday, that on Tuesday.. Not sure if everyone follows a structured schedule like this with their business, but it definitely works for me!

        Thanks for replying and have a great Thursday!

        Juha

  • Great read i fully agree with what you are saying, as I am currently living this situation.

    I would just add that if you are trying to launch your own business being an employee, you can add 2 hours in your daily activities. Launching any project and/or business does not happen magically, especially if you have a family ( and enjoy living (sports, friends, leisure), as I would personally never bargain this family & leisure time. That’s the price to pay for the launch, before critical mass is reached for automation & leverage: Wake-up 2 hours earlier or go to bed 2 hours later.

    Plus, never underestimate the fact that sellings stuff online requires pre-sales & customer attention support, and this is the last thing I would personally outsource in a micro-business.

    My best ever investment in that process at this stage: hire a writter/journalist freelancer, and consider him as your business partner. Just my 20 cents

    • I would definitely agree with you there Franck. A lot can be accomplished in 2 hours, especially if you are focused during those two hours and have a measurable goal.

      I’m also with you on the spending time with the family stuff. That is more important than any online business and needs to be a priority.

  • Hi Leslie, although I am currently doing my home business full-time, this topic which you just posted is something that I have been wanting to share with all of my friends. It is good to see more and more people proving and sharing that one can definitely start an online business with part-time efforts.

    I remember Dave Navarro saying that he struggled during the first few weeks when he finally had his home-based business on a full-time basis – as ironic as it may seem, the time he has available for him then, has made him so unfocused, that he felt he was all over the place. And I can so relate to this, being on this, full-time as well.

    I admire what you are currently doing, and just the fact that you have found the solution to managing yourself in time, is a huge accomplishment. Juha is right in saying that this post is very appropriate for all entrepreneurs out there. I will keep this post as a reminder to myself as I aim to always focus on profit-generating activities, so to speak :)

    • It’s interesting how that happens. I’ve actually noticed that I sometimes get more done when I’m working than when I’m on vacation. As soon as vacation time sets in (which comes relatively often in my job), I get in this mood of – “Yay, I can chill and work online whenever I want to”. For some reason, this whenever I want to takes longer to happen when I get in “Vacation mode”, lol.

      Glad to know that you find the post valuable, and I hope it helps you to achieve what you are trying to achieve. I keep having to remind myself of the tips I mentioned in this article too :)

  • I have a job and starting a blog on side! Working slowly towards a goal is something I am working on although sometimes waiting for big success to come. Glad to know your success! That gives me hope.

    • Slow and steady wins the race Mike. The key word there is STEADY. Always a challenge, but always an interesting journey!

  • I quit my job before I started my internet business, but that was because I decided to combine it with becoming a digital nomad and living in countries where there was a very low cost of living. I have now started another business online which goes alongside my first business (thanks to membership mastermind and blog mastermind). It feels like working 2 full time jobs to me, but the most important factor of it all, is that I love what I do, time seems to go so quickly and I am excited by my business and what I do, it feels like I am living on adrenaline but it helps!

  • Thanks for the article. It’s interesting how having less time can make you more productive – Parkinson’s law perhaps? Since I had a baby six months ago, I’ve been super focused when I do have a spare minute, and have really accomplished a lot more than I imagined I would.

    This is my first comment – love the blog, Yaro.

    • I can imagine that having a baby takes this whole situation to the next level. I admire mothers (or fathers) who do the same from home because I see raising a child as a double time job, not just full time :)

      Keep chugging along!

  • One of the myths about running an online business is that it must be connected with your passion.

    Sure, passion helps but…. you need to determine if there is a market for your product.

    Creating products is the best long-term strategy compared to Advertising, Adsense etc.

    I’d also suggest that you have to write some type of Business Plan – even a 5 pager – that nails what you’re planning to do.

    Use this as to define where/how/when your business will make money.

    And… investing in Yaro’s products are highly recommended.

    • You are right Ivan, but to be honest, I would much rather have an online business that is connected with my passion. It’s not Necessary, but it makes it easier for me to enjoy it. As a result, I end up putting more into making it as great as possible.

      I know there are many out there running businesses that they don’t necessarily care about the topic. It works for many and that’s great. It just wouldn’t work for me :)

  • “Tip #2: Have 1 goal at a time” is the most effective tactic I learned to balance between pursuing my passion on a part time basis and a 9 to 5 job. Thanks for this nice post.

  • Wow, thank you for that inspirational article. I thnk I fall under the category of ‘entrepreneurial ADD’. I have a tendency to want to do everything simultaneously, but I see that you don’t really get anywhere. I’ve felt it, and I still am, but that’s about to change.
    I’ve been contemplating a change in my way that I work, and now, you have just opened the door that I needed opened… if you can say that… ;P

    Thanks anyway!

    • Hi Parnuuna,

      I’m glad that the post could have such a good affect on you. It’s not always easy to make changes to how you do things, but in this case, it’s definitely worth it, whether you have a full time job or not.

      All the best!

  • This is an extremely useful post… when you have limited time to work on your online businesses you really have to have a way of prioritizing, otherwise everything just becomes too much. Probably the biggest reason people give up on this stuff is burnout as a result of not focusing on one thing at a time.

  • Oh I so agree with you on the one goal at a time advice! Works just as well for full-time entrepreneurs.

    And another thing I find is that in a job we usually have someone who will support us and to whom we are accountable (aka a boss!!) but as entrepreneurs it’s just us…. anyone spending too much time on twitter?

    Cathyp

  • Excellent post, Leslie! I am a fellow full-time career professional who is building online businesses on the side. I’ve come to many of the same realizations lately related to NOT multi-tasking and trimming the fat from my to-do list.

    The other thing that helps greatly when you have a family is a loving an supportive spouse!

  • Easy to say for me….I have read so many books, tips, suggestions…. and I know that they will work if I put it to action, but I rarely succeed to implement them fully….
    For example, your tip to focus on one thing only….yes…yes…yes…I’m doing it great but just came to my mind that I forgot to sign in to one workshop and it is due this morning….I will open my outlook just for a sec and send a quick mail…..and then as you can probably guess…I stumble upon some client’s mails, problems….and they mess up my whole concept….

    Sometimes even quick reading of newspapers in the morning before job can scramble my whole day of not knowing what to do first….
    ….but then….that’s just me….hopefully tomorrow I will do better….greetings, Sasa

    • Hi Sasha, I hear you. Also, I don’t want anyone to think that I do these things PERFECTLY, because I don’t. These are concepts that I continue to struggle with. Here’s what I realized . . .

      In the past, whenever I’d try to make those changes after reading a great inspirational book, I’d jump at it head first. However, since I had been used to doing something else for a LOONNNNGGGGGG period of time, after a short time of the change, I would fall back to what I was doing before.

      The key (at least for me) is that when you are making changes like this, you need to start out small and then increase it gradually. Instead of trying to focus on one thing for 3 hours, start with just 15 minutes. Be intentional about it and do it for a while consistently.

      Then after you are comfortable with that, increase it to 30, and then 45, etc etc. Doing it this way has helped me significantly.

  • I am able to connect to this post very much. It really becomes frustrating at times especially when we do multitasking. And if there is pressure at job, then things get tougher. Focusing on one task at a time and automation is really life saver. Motivation at every step is very very important.

    Thank you for the wonderful post.

  • Thanks for the tips! I will go home tonight and start implementing these one by one. Seems like a great resource for people in the position of running a business and working a full time 9 to 5er! This caught my attention immediately as I am currently that person and have found that the support and resources are not as prevelant in this area as I had hope. I’m always looking for ways I can grow my business better than I am doing now. Thanks again!

  • Leslie,

    You’re so right. If there is one thing I never have enough of; it’s time. And with such a busy life, I am constantly juggling a long list of activities. So, you’re tips are ‘spot on the money’. Especially ‘have one goal at a time’. I think the ability to focus is crucial.

    Terry

  • Hey Leslie,
    I can really relate to where you are with this. I’m a researcher for a university in the UK, and I really enjoy my job. I get to research things that interest me, and I get to teach students too. It’s great knowing that I am helping develop people for the future. I feel the same about my blog.

    I find balancing very difficult. However, the best thing I’ve done is spend a little less time on my blog posting. Instead of writing an article daily, I write one every 3rd or 4th day at the very least. I try and relate it to something i’m working on or learning about. What I found was I had more time to build a following, but also to add more valuable posts.

    The automation that you outline I think is a really good tip – and something that I’ll need to utilise sooner rather than later.

    Thanks for sharing these tips!

    • Ahhh man, I identify with you very much. I spent two summers doing research in Germany, and while there, I would spend 12 to sometimes 15 hours in a lab on a daily basis. Then I’d get back to my room and spend the rest of my time trying to make some money by doing web design, lol.

      There was absolutely no balance in my life at the time. It has taken me a while to learn how to have balance when you are busy, and I’m learning more every day. Anyways man, keep on chugging along!

  • Thanks for the great post. I would agree that automation is huge for me with my regular, and online jobs. The Power of the List! haha

  • I had no idea that you were a teacher. I assumed you were running your blogs full time.

    Can you imagine not having to go to work with a regular 9-to-5 schedule and having a “free” schedule every single day? I would imagine that the transition would be a strange yet intriguing experience, almost like retiring at 60, but thirty years earlier.

    Your first tip reminds me of Timothy Ferriss from The 4-Hour Work Week fame. One of his pieces of advice is to cut out 80% of what one does that wastes so much time and instead focus on the 20% that produces the majority of the results. Cutting out reading emails in the morning or only certain days etc.

    I have to admit that focusing on one project/goal/assignment at a time is probably my biggest problem area for getting things accomplished. My initial thought is that this plagues most human beings, but I feel especially susceptible to this insidious barrier.

    I really should take Tip #5 to heart and cut some things loose as well. One of the most difficult things to do.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Andrew

    • Haha, yes, I am a teacher, and yes, I do hear ya on how great it would be to have a “free” schedule. That’s where I’m going eventually. The main reason I still teach is because I love my kids. It’s an interesting situation here where I’m one of the VERY FEW younger teachers at a boarding academy, and feel that for right now, I’m supposed to be here.

      Eventually, when I feel the time is right, I will be working from home full time and that will also be great.

      • I would imagine that teaching at a boarding academy would be a unique experience in and of itself. Have you ever taught at a public school? There must be some major differences between the two environments.

        I also saw your Interactive Biology website. Visual learning for Biology is probably a a highly sought after resource. Talk about a niche website. I would imagine that students would be the ones searching for that type of information. Have you found that to be true?

        Andrew

  • Leslie, dood!

    There I was chatting with you in gmail the other day… then I see this post from you. It’s great to see you here on Yaro’s blog… playing the blogging game and still going strong. Congratulations!

    Steve

  • Hey Leslie, Nice Tips, I agree with most of the points. However, I do not believe in automating anything on a blog. Personal touch and natural interaction is required as a blogger.

    • I find that hard to believe Eddie. I do agree that a personal touch is necessary, and you can use Automation to add that personal touch, as strange as it might sound.

      For example, I just went to your blog and saw that you give away an ebook for free. However, in order to provide it to your readers, you use an automated email subscription service. Does that take away from the personal touch of your blog? Not necessarily. It allows them to get immediate access.

      If you were to give up on automation, your subscribers would have to wait for you to get to your computer, see their subscription and then email the eBook, which can lead to frustration on their end.

      So although a personal touch is necessary, it’s best (in my opinion) to see how you can best use automation to enhance that personal touch.

      • I think to use automation effectively, and still inject your personality requires you to modify the default templates used by any of the automation software. For example, change your confirmation email to something more related to your blog. Your order confirmation page should go back to something on your blog, so it all appears seamless.

  • Hey Leslie, thanks so much for writing this article, I can certainly relate to it from a different side of it. I actually currently am a Full time Student at a university majoring in finance, I definitely struggle the most to keep up with my school work, I would rather get my entrepreneurial on as opposed to focusing on my school work. Still though lately I’ve been realizing what it is I need to do in order to succeed in both areas, and it’s all about actually implementing and doing it. It’s easier to plan it out then to excuse the plan I have.

    Til then,

    Jean

    • I’m a strong believer in the importance of an education. Not necessarily for setting you up for a “good job”, but from my experience, learning to deal with scholastically challenging environments is good preparation for growing your business. Back in college and grad school, I used to call it MENTAL RAPAGE, lol.

      I do wish I did a better job at balancing my time back then. I could’ve accomplished much more, and my online business could’ve been much farther along. However, I’ve learned some valuable lessons, so I think it was all worth it.

      All the best with your studies!

  • Jan

    Hi Leslie,

    thanks for this article! Multitasking also doesn’t work very well for me. To have one goal at a time is the tip I like best. That makes it much easier to avoid information overload.

    Jan

  • Great article on how to work a successfully on a home business while still meeting the demands of a full time job. Thanks for contributing Leslie, I enjoyed reading.

    - Robert

  • [...] Yesterday, Yaro Starak published a guest post on his blog by Leslie Samuel with several more excellent tips for balancing your 9-to-5 with an online business. [...]

  • great post – it seems like you were successfully able to apply the Pareto principle to rid the excess, and then automate the rest. the decision to outsource (let go of control) is a big one that we entrepreneurs often don’t get comfortable with very fast. that is why we all share the same regret of not automating earlier in the process.

    what you are doing and advocate is what my blog is all about as well. you are essentially building the foundation to be able to design your life the way you want to live it, not the way you are forced to live it. congratulations, and see you on your blog.

  • Leslie,

    Thanks for the great tips especially the last one. We’ve got to find what we love, since our work is going to fill a large part of our life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what we believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what we do. But If we haven’t found it yet, we should keep looking.

  • One thing that has to be considered is the “USA factor.” I know a lot of you don’t live in America – but the US is a a massive pressure cooker..Labor laws? What’s that? If you refuse to work 70 hours a week for 35 hours pay you are a slacker! So getting started on anything runs right up against the exhaustion factor. Doing one thing at a time is crucial if that’s the schedule you are keeping.

  • Absolutely Yaro. I particularly agree with the points you make about automation and outsourcing.

    For the last 5 years, I believed that to be a great business person, you had to multi-task and do everything. I realised exactly why this was when reading your article:

    My Dad had his own business for many years in the printing industry and did pretty much all his own work. OK, he had someone running the presses but other than that, it was all him. As a result I’d never questioned that to be successful you had to do it all. This only changed when I started seeking out super-successful people and I realised that actually, it’s much better if you don’t do it all yourself as others can do it better, leaving you to focus on your 20% that really matters.

    Thanks for sparking this realisation about the reasons I used to think that way.

    Matt

  • This is a issue facing many people which is evident from the huge number of replies already. I too work a job on the side for financial stability and I am not really skilled in the art of juggling both yet. I totally agree with most of the points that you have raised, particularly multitasking. It’s only a matter of time before we realize that some amount of delegation is necessary for the better of your business as well as yourself. However, if I find a promising future working online, I might resign from the dreaded ’9 to 5′.

  • ron

    Exactly the article that I am looking for. I am a newbie when it comes to blogging although I have been in the internet industry for quite a long time. This are the same dilemma I have to face all the time. This article is insightful. Kudos to the writer.

  • For a long time I made the “multi-tasking” error. I tried to do 10 things in parallel and I thought, that way I achieve 10-times more. The result however was that I didn’t achieve anything. I just dispersed my energy and time in all kinds of directions instead of focusing it on 1 single project at a time. As a result, I lost all my drive and motivation. I thought: What’s the point – you do all the hard work without getting anything in return.

    After a healthy break, I started again, but this time I focused only on 1 thing and I didn’t really care som much about the end result – I simple had fun and enjoyed what I was doing – everything else was secondary. And suddenly the snowball started rolling: I made $30 commission here, $30 there and again $30… and best of all: this time around it didn’t feel like hard work, I just had fun and the rest happened on it’s own.

    My advice: Love what you do, enjoy what you do – and if you are currently doing something you don’t like, find something else – and the money and success follows automatically.

  • Yes, you are absolutely right. But my problem is this – I know 20% of my efforts produce 80% of my success. I just don’t know what the 20 % actually is. Ray

  • It is very difficult to manage both the job as well as another business. Though you are expert at different fields, you can’t concentrate on two things at the same time. For that you need to do time management and still there is no guaranty that you’ll be getting enough time to manage both the things.
