Ross: I am working on a new blog post on time management and how to make real money on your side business. I will link to your post. I am often using bus and tram rides for doing worklife stuff, e.g., listening to podcasts, writing down notes, checking my calendar, etc.

Excellent piece, Ross; I really enjoyed reading it.

When you already have a full and busy life, it can be rather difficult to make time for your "side hustle". As of right now I have my time broken down into specific blocks and I follow a set daily checklist to ensure that I get all of my tasks completed.

I currently attend college full-time, work part-time and run my blog business full-time; not to mention having to make time for the family and fiance' - so yeah, being effective with my time and finding ways to be more productive is a necessity for me.

I love, love, LOVE what you mentioned about saying "No". I can struggle with that at times, but I've learned that I can't be everything to everyone. I have to prioritize and if that means that I can't help someone, then so be it.

I also liked what you said about being a passenger. This is SO helpful. There's been plenty of times where I've been able to complete full blog posts by simply being a passenger as I rode the bus to school.

This is my first time visiting your blog, Ross; I found you on Tribber and I'm loving what I've seen and read so far. I'll be sure to share this post with my social network. I'll also leave you a comment on BizSugar.

I look forward to connecting more with you soon; keep up the great work.
