Can You Balance Having a Full Time Job and Running an eBook Publishing Business?

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail question from someone who wanted to start an eBook business but was worried about also having a full-time job. This isn’t as unusual of a situation as you might think. Most people, when they’re just getting started, have a job. Even if someone doesn’t have a traditional job, they might have other household responsibilities like raising kids. The time constraints are the same regardless.

When I was just getting started, I was working in a call center providing technical support. Not only was it a full time job, but it was a tiring job. Try talking to people on the phone all day who you need to be patient with while you explain things that to you seems really easy. It can be very challenging to keep your sanity!

The most important thing you can do is be realistic about how much time you have to devote to starting and running your eBook business. At the end of a day at work, you’re going to be tired. It’s important that you remember that your friends and family are important. You don’t want to necessarily cut these people out of your life and sacrifice those relationships. So make sure you’re allowing yourself time to keep in touch with friends and to spend time with family.

I’d highly recommend starting out by allocating at least 45 uninterrupted minutes of time you can use to exclusively focus on your business. Not every day, but rather, 4 days per week when you’re just getting started. Here’s the big secret. Invest some time up-front learning the shortcuts. Get yourself a road map that will cut down on the amount of trial-and-error that so many aspiring eBook business owners have to deal with. You’ll discover that yes, you can successfully balance having a full time job and running an eBook publishing company.
