Maintaining regular growth for your business is extremely important, yet it is commonly neglected among many freelancers.

You are swamped with current projects that eat up the majority of your time and when the end of the day rolls around, your business is probably one of the last things on your mind.

What if you could set aside just 1 hour per week to grow your business? Better yet, what if you could accomplish something within that hour that would actually make a difference?

So, what could you do in an hour or less that would actually grow your business?

For starters, you could write a book.

Write a book

I know what you are thinking. “Write a book in less than an hour? That’s impossible”. While this task might be difficult, I would hardly say it’s impossible. Imagine if you wrote a book titled “10 mistakes your business is making on the web” or something (perhaps a little more catchy). The book could contain 1500 words of advice for small businesses in your area about having a better business web site. Then you could give these books away to small companies in your area with your contact information on the back cover.

As clients read the book, they realize they are committing some simple mistakes and when they need to hire a new designer to fix their web design problems, who do you think they will turn to? The brains behind the operation. The person who helped them discover the mistakes they were committing. You.”
