Figure out what about your work you like and which parts you eventually would like to give to someone else to do. Work towards eventually using other people’s time to get your goals accomplished.

Here's a last tip. When you do what you like, it flows and you don't get as tired. When you feel bogged down, tired you are probably not doing what you love.

My name is Lawrence Touitou. I am a website designer and internet marketer. But while I do this as a professional I still very much consider myself a student.
I have been at it for several years and those who know me know can tell you that I am a quick study, and certainly not new to marketing, business, writing and knowing what works in the real world.
You may be surprised to know that a lot of the same tried and true principles that apply to offline business also apply to the internet. (So don't forget what you know. )
I don't believe in a lot of hocus-pocus, “get-rich-quick" schemes. I do however believe in creating wealth, knowing what works and being generous to others.
In the internet marketing arena, anyone with a strong desire to succeed, a willingness to learn, and some business sense can learn to do exactly what I do.
