You are the boss, and don’t want to work for anyone else, set your own hours and rely on a steady income. Here are some quick strategies you can use to increase productivity and make a steady self-employment income.
1. Make decisions as your the boss
You decide how you make money. No-one else but you will decide how much money you want to earn; and simply the more hours you spend on doing gig work, the more you earn. While doing any gig, you have to have your own set of rules to follow so that your services will be rendered without any issues. You will have to make decisions based on the feedback you receive.
2. Set a concreate work schedule
Since you have no set work hours and can be flexible when you want to work, you still need to set a commitment to your work schedule. If you don’t – no one else will because your the boss.
3. Set a Daily Goal
If you are busy with other daily tasks – that’s fine but simply find an hour or two to commit to your goal. Sticking to your goal will help achieve a steady income.
4. Breaks increase productivity
Do not continuously work endless hours as it’s not productive and you don’t want to burn out. You should always balance your work/life by going for a walk, working-out, walking the dog, doing household chores and then pick up where you left-off. When your mind is at rest you will be able to work faster.
5. Make a To-Do List
Earning a steady income, means being organized and sometimes it’s hard to remember daily specific tasks; go ahead and make a to-do list, either from a calendar or even draft one with a pen and paper. Post-it Notes help!
6. Make Time
Make time for your friends and family. It’s not good to consistently work and you may feel that time is money, which is the right attitude, but there is always tomorrow. It’s good to spend time with family and friends and you may even suddenly get new ideas for making more money, so once in a while, it’s always good to change your atmosphere.
7. Track Your Work Time
Calculate how much your earning per hour with how many tasks you are doing which lets you figure out a more accurate schedule of how many daily tasks you need to do to reach your daily goal. All tasks from gig-economy apps earn different and you will need to figure out bi-weekly and monthly estimated gross payouts.
