Are You Spending Time on Promising Leads or Dead Ones?

If you’re in the service business, then you live and breathe the saying: TIME IS MONEY.

And if you don’t, you should.

I run a service based company too and it wasn’t long before I realized that my time is everything. It’s up to me, and only me, to value my time and do everything I can to maximize it.


I’m constantly trying to do things that save time. I’m on the lookout for process inefficiencies. I’m alllllll about convenience. I’m a productivity whore. I’m continually revisiting and changing my approach to make sure that when I give something or someone my time, it’s worth it.

Recently I travelled down a little road that had me reevaluating new leads. Contrary to what first comes to mind, a new lead isn’t always rainbows and sunshine and MONEY. Sometimes they’re flaky, unorganized, confused, tire-kicking wastes of time!

I wrote a guest blog post all about it over at The Work at Home Woman. If you want to know how to spend time on promising leads, not dead ones visit http://www.theworkathomewoman.com/promising-leads/ and tell me what you think. And if you believe it’s worthy (which I pray you do), share the crap out of it so all of us service-slaves can spend more time where it counts.
