In this video, you will learn how to start a business while working a day job in 2017.

It’s almost impossible to quit your job, start a business, and then succeed.

You have to usually grind while still having a day job first. Enjoy the video and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Here are a few tips for starting a business while still working a regular 9-5 job:

 

 

1. Look for businesses that can be passive or automated

If you have a job and are building a business, you definitely don’t want to be doing anything that is high maintenance or time-consuming.

Helpful resources:

 

 

2. Set aside time every day to build the business (preferably before work hours)

You only have so much willpower to use each day. If you use all of it up and are tired when you get home from your job you won’t want to work on your business afterwards.

Helpful resources:

  • This article talks about why President Obama would wear only 2 different suit styles and do other things while in office to avoid decision fatigue.
  • Another New York Times article explains decision fatigue in-depth with the studies to back it up.

 

 

3. Build on your competitive advantage

If you want your business to actually make progress and get somewhere as quickly as possible, you need to build it on your competitive advantage that your competitors don’t have.

4. Test everything before wasting your time

One of the smartest things you can do with your business to avoid wasting your valuable time is test everything. Whether it is a book title, affiliate product, course, or anything else, test it before going all in.

Helpful resources:

  • This post will show you some great ways brands have tested their content and advertising.
  • I recommend Google Adwords for testing keywords, book titles, topics and many other things for your business.
  • You may want to try Google Trends as well. It will help you find out what people are becoming more or less interested in.

 

 

5. Get good at either content marketing or paid ads

Content marketing is great if you want to build a natural, more loyal following without much cost. Paid ads are better if you want to get instant results and you are okay with spending more money.

Helpful resources:

 

 

6. Get the best analytics

Analytics are crucial to your success because they tell you what works and what doesn’t. Without them, you’re taking shots in the dark hoping to get lucky.

Helpful resources:

  • Google Analytics has always been one of the greatest business tools ever made. And it’s free!
  • YouTube Analytics is also very helpful for building a video channel.

 

 

7. Outsource and automate everything you can after perfecting your process

Your time is your most important asset. You can’t make more of it like you can with money. Use software programs, freelancers, and other services to automate what you can as you build your business.

Helpful resources:

  • If you want to outsource just about any task to freelancers, I recommend UpWork.
  • On the other hand, if you want a software program or bot to automate your work, try AutoIt.
