Many business people say that business day is 9am-5pm. I say… a little longer. Because I am a business person. And I am in the business of providing you with great resources and information.
Although I think the 9am-5pm timeframe is appropriate for most people, it’s just not the most practical way of setting up for business. I have a couple of clients who prefer 8am-5pm, and I think that’s great, but it’s not a great fit for everyone. For new business owners, 9am is plenty of time to start a meeting and do a walk through.
The truth is that the most popular time to start a meeting is 9am. That’s because the average meeting begins at 9am, and typically ends by 5pm. I think that the 9am-5pm timeframe is perfect for a lot of companies. And it’s the best time to set up a meeting with your potential clients. It’s a time when people are most open-minded, most eager to hear your business proposal, and most likely most likely to help you out.
This is true of most startups, but it is certainly not true of every business. But it is true of most business owners. A 9am start time is most likely the time to go into your office or meeting and get an idea of the day’s agenda.
There is a very important exception to the 9am rule, and that is when a business owner has a “business dinner.” This is when you go to the office and start working on your next pitch and the business owner brings up the topic of your previous meeting. As a general rule, this is a great time to start a conversation with the business owner, because the business owner is most likely going to be interested in hearing about what you did.
What’s the most important thing you want out of the day? You can’t really have a good time at the office. If you actually wanted to, you can probably get some free time with other people (or your family). But I know that most of us really don’t want to. When you’re working off your dinner, the most important thing you want is to get the work done.
To be honest, I don’t think most people need to work after dark at all. We’re all busy people, and when you’re busy, the only time you really have is in the middle of the night. But that’s not really the biggest problem. The biggest problem is that when you’re doing your work from 11:30pm to 3am, you don’t have a lot of time to talk to your customers.
The biggest problem is that youre done with your night shift by 3am. Then you have to get up and deal with the customers. Thats not a problem because theres not much you can do when youre done with your night shift. But it is a problem because you have a lot of customers. You have to deal with them and get the business done. But you can only do that when you get up at 3am.
How long is a business day? Well, technically it’s 11:10am to 3:00am, but that depends on your work schedule. If you’re a retail clerk in a store, you are in the business of buying things that you need to make your way home. You’re not in it for the thrill of the chase. That is a different thing entirely.
So if youre not a retail clerk in a store, then youre doing work. And youre probably thinking to yourself, “Well I guess I can still get up at 3am to make my way home.” And you are wrong. You can’t. You are in the business of buying things for your family. So the only thing you can do when you’re done with work is to sit back, relax, and go back to sleep.
