Do you ever wonder what other business owners are actually doing all day?
Maybe it’s my nosy nature, but I am curious about how other people spend their time… what are they actually doing all day in their business?
And so I thought hey, i’ll share my working day with you… in case you are nosy like me. 😉
Here is a play-by-play of my day this past Tuesday January 18th, for those of you who like to sneak a peek behind the scenes and see what a typical day looks like for me in my biz.
8:50 AM – drive daughter to preschool and listen to some of my biz building CDs – today’s CD was from Fabienne Fredrickson’s Marketing Mindset event (I love listening to stuff in the car – what do you use your driving time for?)
9:05 AM – driving home and remember an old product of mine that I haven’t promoted in a while – Escape from Email Hell. Hey, could be time to get a promo going there! Hmmm…
9:20 AM – home now and checking email. First is an email my OBM re: doing a promo for the Escape from Email Hell product
9:32AM – posted this tweet from my daily www.tut.com email, it made me go “hmmm….
Insist on the destination, Tina, not on how you’ll get there.
9:42 AM – posted new RFP to hire an OBM via www.OBMConnect.com, great biz owner who is so ready to find the right support… so glad to help her find her match!
9:58 AM – dialing into call with @brynjohnson, she is interviewing me for her Ideas and Inspiration Series at http://www.ideasandinspirationinterviews.com/
11:02 AM – call is done, super fun! Always love talking to Bryn, she is a kindred spirit. Off to pick up my daughter from preschool.
11:55 AM – back from getting Sam, she’s off to her dayhome. Now it’s time to hop on a call with my OBM Mentees – it’s our monthly Q&A “anything goes” coaching call
1:30 PM – just wrapped up mentee call and now have a call with a lady from Germany who is interested in bringing the OBM model into her biz and for her market, very cool stuff! Would love to get more active in the European market
2:00 PM – chat with one of the gals who has done our OBM Certification re: having her teach a class with us in the future

3:05 PM – quick call with one of my OBM Mentees re: an opp that has crossed her desk
3:20 PM – call with my new coach re: getting started and next steps. SUPER jazzed and excited (and a bit nervous too, eek moment!)
3:50 PM – signing off now to go pick up the girls from their dayhome, family time!
9:35 PM – quick check-in before bed, did a few projects and prepped myself for what is coming up tomorrow.
10:06 PM – off to bed!
10:15 PM – k, I squeezed in one last email… now i’m officially off to bed! 😉
And so you have it… a day in the life of Tina Forsyth. It may not be glamorous but I tell ya, I wouldn’t want to spend my days any other way.
How about you? What does your day look like?
