The 4 Productivity Hacks Every Beauty Boss Needs to Know
When you’re an in-demand skincare, lash/brow or waxing specialist, there’s a lot to do! Now, while being busy is what keeps the revenue rolling in, I’m sure you’ve noticed there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done.
You see, as a beauty boss with decades of experience I know how it feels to sit stuck with a long list of tasks hanging out on your to-do list by the time you’re ready to chill with family or call it a night.
Sooo, how exactly do you handle everything to keep your business running smoothly AND find time to sleep and just have a time out from all things business?
That’s the question I’ll answer today but first please know this:
Becoming more productive requires patience and consistent effort. While it’s not something you can accomplish overnight, productivity is possible for even the busiest beauty bosses. Ready to find out how?
Let’s take a look!
Tip #1: Set Small Goals
No matter what you need to do, try not to overwhelm yourself with huge goals. While a big project might be the end goal, the best strategy is to break the big picture down into smaller, more obtainable goals you can use as stepping stones.
You’ll realize just how much you can accomplish when you’re checking those smaller tasks off your to-do lists.
Tip #2: Take Breaks
Doing less when you’re trying to do more might sound counterintuitive, but it’s actually one of the best ways to make yourself more productive. When you’re working non-stop, your mind and your body get tired and the quality of your work starts to decline.
When you take a break and give yourself the time to rest, you’ll come back to your tasks with more energy and focus, allowing you to get things done far more efficiently.
Tip #3: Tackle One Task at a Time
Many people think that working on five separate tasks at once leads to getting more done. Unfortunately, this is a complete myth. Many studies have been done and the evidence shows multitasking makes tasks take longer and decreases the quality of the work.
So, train your brain to work on one thing at a time and you’ll start to see yourself getting things done much faster than you were before.
Tip #4: Ask for Help
Sometimes, you just can’t do it all on your own. Not having total control of every task can be difficult for some beauty bosses, but if you can learn to delegate certain things you’ll be able to focus more on what you need to be doing the most.
For example, bookkeeping is a vital task that needs to be taken care of on a regular basis. While you could teach yourself how to do it, hiring a professional can free up your time to focus on the bigger picture.
Being a more productive beauty boss won’t happen overnight, but making small changes in the way you approach your days can lead to big changes over time. Want more guidance on being a productive beauty boss? I’ll teach you everything you need to know — check out more of my Beauty Bytes, here.
