This summer I made it my goal to focus on developing websites and buying domain names. All of this was going great, until tourism season began in Montana and I worked on the river for 35 days straight. The problem with being a part time domain investor is finding time after your full time job is done.
How can you combat these problems?
Set aside time for domain relate work on your calendar and stick to it. I do not have class on Fridays, so I try to spend a few hours in the morning working on my properties.
Focus on a few projects at a time. If you are trying to do too much in your limited time you will end up doing nothing meaningful. Pick your favorite and most successful project or ideas and run with those.
Outsource! Hire other people to do some of your work. Some tasks are not worth spending your time on like article writing. Finding a good team or reliable workers is one of the most important things a part time developer can do.
When it is time to work, actually work. Don’t spend the little time you have reading domain blogs or twitter. Come up with a To Do list and get at it!
One of my favorite things about this industry is that I can work part time and still be successful. The problem with that is I often do not put in the time I need to and struggle because of the reasons mentioned above. If you need inspiration guys like Morgan and Shane are great examples of people running very successful domain businesses part time.
If you are a part time domain investor how do you stay focused on your business?
