Interested in starting up a new business venture but not sure how you'll balance it working a full time job at the same time? 

You don't have to quit your day job to make time. While it might work for some people, you might not be able to afford jumping in head first realistically. 

Don't fret! We are here to tell you it's possible! It's not easy of course, but you will need to manage and prioritise your spare time to be more productive and get there faster. You will need to stay productive and motivated and not give up. Have you ever found yourself saying "But I don't have time?". This is an excuse that people use to put things off! Everyone has time, you just need to make time. 

You'd be amazed at what you can achieve if you manage your time effectively. 

We'd like to share with you a few secret weapons that can help you manage your time better.


Pretty simple right? 

There are so many productivity apps out there that can help you out too. If you're not sure which ones to use, here is a break down of some of our favourites..

Swipes is a ridiculously easy to use to do list app, and it has integration with Evernote. The two go hand-in-hand and they sync information to each other. Swipes is great for collating your email, notes and calendar in one place which allows you to set tasks and reminders for yourself. You can turn a note from Evernote into action plan in Swipes, which breaks down large tasks into smaller do-able ones. It can also be accessed via your Android or iOS phone, computer or tablet. Pretty cool huh?
