How to Make Your Time Worth $10,000 an Hour (Part 2)

Welcome to the second episode of a special 3-part series on “how to make your time worth $10,000 an hour”, a wildly popular topic among Tap the Potential’s family of business owners!

Today, we’ll get into ways of utilizing the 80/20 principle more effectively in your business, and how to combine that with the Profit First system. You’ll be hearing the secret to multiplying your profit by 100-900% in the next twelve months (or less!), plus this will free up your time in your business AND you’re likely to have a much better attitude toward your business by the time you implement these principles.

In order to support you in working through this special series, you’ll want to download our workbook and “Chart of $10,000 an Hour Activities”, at

Let’s dive in!

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

Show Highlights:

  • If you missed downloading the workbook (which includes the “Chart of $10,000 an Hour Activities”) last week, please visit
  • It’s important to understand that 20% of our efforts are responsible for 80% of the results that we get.
  • 20% of the clients and customers in our businesses are responsible for 80% of our revenue.
  • Setting a modest goal to increase revenue by 25% from the top 20% of your clients by delivering additional value generates an additional $200,000 per year based on one million dollars yearly revenue.
  • This frees up considerable time and allows you the choice to drop 80% of your (PITA) clients and customers.
  • There is a huge impact of being “at choice”!
  • A tremendously powerful, brain-storming exercise to take your team through. (Hint: This meeting is a $10,000 an hour activity!)
  • Comparing $10 an hour activities with $10,000 an hour activities in your business.
  • Why you must have the Profit First system in place at your business. (Tip: We’re Profit First professionals here at Tap the Potential and can support you in getting your system in place!)

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.
