Prime time for entrepreneurs refers to those sacred hours every day when you can accomplish the most. For me, those hours are between about six-thirty and eleven in the morning and I am reluctant to give them up very often.
By utilizing prime time, entrepreneurs can accelerate their progress and business growth exponentially. My experience proves this and I am not alone.

My colleague Mike Darling was discussing this topic of prime time in one of his recent posts, and he brought up some salient points that are worth reading. He shares that his best hours are in the early morning, and says:
“So I have found it useful and helpful, to live my weekends as if this was a weekday and I was self-employed, until I am fully self-employed. Which means yes I have to wash the car and mow the grass and exercise, but I need to preserve and protect those precious hours in the morning.”
This topic of prime time is one that most entrepreneurs I know live by. Let’s look at some examples of how this can be effective for you, especially if you are new to the concept of choosing one time of day over another to build your online business.
You must discover your own prime time hours during your days off. When I did this back in 2006 as a new entrepreneur I was surprised to find that I was the most awake and alert during the first few hours of my mornings. All the years I worked as a classroom teacher I assumed that I was only wide awake so early because the job required me to me. In fact, I am a morning person and as I type this it is ten minutes before six in the morning for me.
Discover your own prime time and then protect that time as many days as you possibly can, given your current schedule. If you are currently at a job that requires you to work for someone else during those hours five days a week, make sure to protect them on your days off. I will promise you that if you are willing to work hard during these precious hours as often as possible your life will change in untold ways and you will be on your way to entrepreneurial freedom.
