No.4 – Bye bye 9-5, hello crazy ass hours.
Start-up entrepreneurs are renowned for being low on cash and low on time. Not every entrepreneur does crazy hours, but a lot do and in general, if you assume that they will be finished at 5 pm or 6 pm, you need to re-think that hard. Many #entrepreneurs work full-time jobs and hustle hard on the side. These guys are the most time-strapped and you really need to take this into consideration. Look at it like this.
If you work standard hours your day typically starts at 7 am and ends at 6 pm (on average), that is you get back home or out to wherever by 6 pm. Now, let’s look at it from the gal who has a side hustle. She finishes at 5/5.30pm, then has to try and cram a whole days worth of business into the remainder of her evening. Remembering she needs to be up again at 7 am for a full day of 9-5.
And if that’s not bad enough, imagine the weekend is the ONLY time in the week where she’ll have time to really focus for an extended period of time. Our advice here is, when arranging things to do together, give defined start and finish times. Let them know at the end of the event, they need to “get back to work”! WOW, they will love you if you take this #attitude.
Hope to see you at out next event : https://lnkd.in/dBP4y2K
