How could prioritizing your workload provide you with more freedom in your business? It is common for entrepreneurs to set annual income goals; perhaps having a successful business to you might mean making $100,000 per year, or making $250,000 annually and still being able to take holidays off.
Leonie Dawson started with this approach also: as the sole breadwinner for her family, she wanted to be able to support her family financially and make at least $30,000/year. But when she had a baby, she was forced to cut way back on her time spent working, and maximize her productivity in the short working hours she had. Over time, she developed the skills to build a multi-million dollar empire while only working 10 hours a week!
