Things You Can Do To Grow Your Freelance Business 10 Minutes a Day


Consider how many times you have a 10-minute lull in your day.

Whether it’s a break at work, in between client meetings, while waiting for water to boil or in line at the grocery store, or you’ve just done a task ahead of schedule and don’t have anything scheduled for the next 10 minutes. These snippets of time can quickly add up.

If you have an extensive to-do list or you’re going on a side hustle journey, you want to make the most of every minute of the day, right? These brief pauses throughout the day may seem pointless — what can you accomplish in 10 minutes?

You can do so much in these 10-minute lulls to help your freelance business. Use your breaks properly, and you’ll be able to cross items off your to-do list all day while also setting your freelance business up for success.

Here are a few suggestions for things you can do to improve your business in 10 minutes or less:

  • Post on Instagram or LinkedIn
  • Retweet someone you’d like to work with on Twitter.
  • Respond to an email you’ve been putting off for a while.
  • Respond to a post in a Facebook group.
  • Send an email to someone you’d like to have on your power team one day.
  • Make a list of blog topics about which you could write.
  • For a quick burst of inspiration, watch an episode of Marie TV or The Pursuit of Happyness.

What if you’re working on a large project, like an ebook or online course, and you just don’t have time? Spend a few minutes breaking down your large activity into bite-sized tasks and work on finishing your project in your spare time. By putting together the work you accomplish in small bursts, you can create a lot of great things. It’s not always necessary to have a full weekend open to finish your projects.
