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

One of the most popular topics of conversation among Tap the Potential’s family of business owners is “how to make your time worth $10,000 an hour”, and we’re going to be taking a deep dive into this topic today.

This is the first episode of a three-part series, and over the next few weeks, we’ll be talking about how to avoid the most common and costly missteps when working on your business and the secret to multiplying your profit by 100-900% in less than twelve months time (and freeing up your time while doing so!). PLUS, you’ll be hearing two questions that will get you laser-focused on your $10,000 activities in your business that will help multiply your profit.

Making the most of your time spent working on your business is the very first step to taking your life back from your business. Your mindset will shift significantly over these next few weeks around how you show up and how you’re spending your time in your business.

In order to support you in working through these next few weeks, you’ll want to download our “Chart of $10,000 an Hour Activities”, at Let’s get started!

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production in collaboration with Small Business Consulting Group.

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.
