How to Make Your Time Worth $10,000 an Hour, Part 1

Your time is valuable. Don’t waste it on clients and customers who don’t fit your ideal client profile. A much better strategy is to identify the sweet spot of your business and have a system for attracting the right people and deterring the wrong people. Today’s episode covers a popular topic with the Tap the Potential family of business owners: how to make your time worth $10,000 an hour. I’ve been using these strategies and teaching on this subject for many years, and I’m excited to share this information with you today.

In today’s Part 1, the focus is on you, the business owner, your $10,000 an hour mindset, and how to handle delegation. Part 2 will focus on your team members and how to get them thinking about making their time worth more than $100, $1000, and even $10,000 an hour. I’m bringing you the latest research on entrepreneurship and what we know about those who are thriving and those who are burning out.

  • My story: a meltdown, a life lesson learned (“Limits force innovation and creativity.”), and my 25-hour workweek
  • Two powerful questions to ask yourself to get out of overwhelm:
    • What is the one thing I can do today to move my business forward?
    • What is the one thing I can do right now so that everything else will be easier or unnecessary?
  • Turn your survival trap activities into $10,000 an hour activities by aligning them with your vision.
  • Serve your business from your unique gifts and strengths; not everything you spend time on is a $10,000 an hour activity! (Our Better Business Better Life Assessment can help you figure out where your business is and where the gaps are.)
  • Signs of burnout (9 out of 10 entrepreneurs are experiencing burnout!)
  • A system to attract A-players to your team will help you delegate and see more opportunities for profitable growth (Our How to Hire the Best course can help!)
  • Change your mindset: Not every YES is a good YES!
  • Your guide to decision making: Does this activity or opportunity serve the sweet spot of my business, or not?
  • Examples of $10,000 activities
  • Common mistakes that business owners make
  • The golden nugget: Work from your strengths and apply the 80/20 principle to the sweet spot of your business.
  • Dr. Sabrina’s takeaways: “Don’t get overwhelmed by $10,000 an hour activities. You can’t put them all into place at once, so start small. Let us help you get started moving forward from where you are right now. Take the Better Business Better Life Assessment today!”

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
