Naked Truth: Not easy.
In this episode, I reveal 10 tips for managing your time when you are trying to start up a part-time internet business.
I also interview Jason Van Orden from Internet Business Mastery and get his views on time management.
Ten Internet Business Time Management Tips
Here are the ten time management tips that I cover in the podcast
Time management – how do I get all this stuff done? I feel like I am drowning and my head is going to explode. I get this question a lot
Truth is that I am a terrible time manager. Particularly when it comes to details. Ask my wifE. Shell tell you.
I have great intentions, though. So one of my failure modes is over commit and under deliver.
Ten Part time Internet marketing time management tips
1. Choose a passion that has a profitable niche; Don’t chase the money.
2. Have a great plan and focus on it. Have an aim and don’t be distracted by bright shiny stuff.
3. Try to accomplish something every day.
4. Information diet. http://www.latenightim.com/academ
- news and other junk
- stuff you don’t need to know right now
- mailing lists
5. Latch on to someone that inspires you. Pat Flynn, Cliff Ravenscraft. Use their example and energy to fuel you.
6. Convert wasted time into work time. Learn on the go. I prefer audio.
7. Ditch the television. Seriously. Easy to say, hard to do.
8. Use technology like Evernote to capture your ideas and to do work when you can.
9. Avoid overly complex magic systems

Making Time For Your Internet Business
That’s Geoff Smith on guitar there with the unplugged version of the Mason World Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast theme. That’s terribly cool. Thanks for letting me indulge you with that. I’m totally digging the unplugged version of the theme song.
Unplugged seemed appropriate, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve been on the mic so I’ve been a little unplugged myself and I thought I’d roll out that unplugged version. I though this episode what we ought to do is talk a little bit about part time internet and time management.
How in the world do you find the time to run a part time internet business if you’ve got a day job? That’s a question a lot of people have on their mind, I get that question all the time.
I got this tweet the other day from Dewayne Marion:
@masonworld what do you do when all time for internet biz is taken?wow! its a busy life!
— Dewayne Marion (@podcastzen) May 6, 2012
Your life is busy, so what do you do? I’ve got some tips on that. I’ve been doing this for three or four years and I can talk to it a little bit. I’m going to tell you everything that I know about it and then I’m going to cut to an interview with Jason Van Orden.
Jason has a really cool course on how he and Sterling manage their time. It’s one of the best time management courses that I’ve run across, and the only one I’ve ever seen that’s specific to online business. It’s really good.
I’m going to give you some really good free tips here as well. Jason and Jay’s course is very affordable, but it’s not free. We’ll point you to that here after Jay’s interview here.
I thought before we do that I’d talk to you a little bit about what’s been going on in the last week since we last spoke. I think the last time I talked to you I was broadcasting from Taiwan. Since then I’ve been back and doing a lot of work on this Google business.
