I don’t have time…
How interesting your life is a hot mess, stressed and overwhelmed and you don’t have time.
Hello Houston – I think we found the problem.
“I don’t have the time” has become our new catch-all phrase for everything we simply don’t want to do, replacing “I’m so stressed.”
The day I was on the unit at the hospital and it was me and another male nurse working with one patient on a unit because he was too violent to be on the main unit with other patients.
Let me repeat this…. “he was too violent”.
Then they moved the unit over one floor which made an empty unit between us on both sides of our hall. Meaning….
No one could hear us scream if we needed help no matter how loud we yelled. For 13 hours, my energy was on hyper-alertness. At 4 AM it went up a notch and I knew at that moment someone was going to get hurt.
He got mad. Over coffee. No way was I handing this man a cup of HOT coffee. He screamed Mother Fu#kers!! The other nurse and I looked at each other and he said, “Go call help.” I was afraid to move because I knew it would cause him to react. About that time a chair hit the wall and he broke off one of the legs as a club.
The male nurse said, “GO! – I can hold him off.” I turned to go in the office to call a Code D. The very new and very scared housekeeper slammed the door in my face as I got to the doorway and ran out the back entrance.
I scrambled for my keys like you see people do in the movies and it felt like 30 minutes. The door popped open… I grabbed the phone and screamed into the phone CODE D CODE D CODE D!!!!
I could hear the fight on the hallway…
I could hear something hitting something…
I ran out the door and all I could see was the patient holding the club high in the air with the male nurse on the floor covering his head with his arms.
I screamed “NOooooooo!!!” And the next thing I knew I was body tackling the patient like a linebacker from the NFL. I am sure with that one move they would have hired me on the spot.
Everything happened so fast. Another staff was running on the unit and someone grabbed me and picked up to move me out of the way…
Time flashed before my eyes…
Life changed that day…
We both were ok – the patient returned to PRISON…NOT jail… prison!!!
When someone tells me how miserable they are and what they are willing to do for money to buy the things they need or want but not willing to change how it comes in tells me they are not willing to get uncomfortable to learn something new.
This incident was only one of the MANY high-risk assaults I worked in. We didn’t run from fights we ran to them. We went into rooms where there was one door in and one door out with an angry person.
I found time to change my life.
I started a business group for my business builders and they piled into the group fast because it was a free group. I want to help people learn how one hour a day can change what their life looks like if they will do the steps.
I can overwhelm you with options and things to do and how to build your business and the many ways of pushing content out on the inter-webs but I don’t and I won’t.
I focus on one hour a day broken into 15 min segments to build a business that can replace whatever you have coming in if done consistently.
Out of 155 people in a group – only 5% will respond to any tip or training posted. That is the normal numbers.

Yet all of our successful members have lives outside of our business community. Some have families and children, full-time jobs and/or entrepreneurial efforts. Some are active in their community, the majority take the time to work out and eat right, and probably have other activities as well, such as getting in episodes of their favorite television show, or doing whatever they find enjoyable.
I admit that it’s not because those who stick around magically have more time in their day, but rather it’s because those who want to be involved make being involved a priority at the cost of something less important.
If you want something to be a priority in your life, you make the time for it at the expense of something you deem not as important. It’s truly that simple.
A TV show… will never pay a bill or take you on vacation.
Binge-watching Netflix eating ice cream and surfing Facebook mindlessly for 2 hours is a choice and it’s totally ok. Each choice comes with a price. You get to choose that too.
Don’t ever say “I don’t have the time.” Because, yes, you do. You have the same time in the day as anyone else.

One hour out of 24 hours over 7 days = 7 hours to build a business that can shift your life.
An hour a day can add $1000 a month in your pocket. I remember when $500 a month was life shifting for me.
One hour is a slow build but it is what most people feel like they have to offer to their own life.
Sounds like rough talk?
Not really. I have one focused hour as you do and I want to make sure it is spent with people who are serious. Can I help you?

My name is Angela Brooks I’m from Kentucky, a mama who built a big business part-time on my lunch break blogging, using social media power hours.
After a rewarding 30+ year career in healthcare as a nurse, it was time to transition my lifestyle to one I had more control of. Burnout is very real. Decades of budget cuts, staff reductions and stagnant wages have resulted in a profession that is grossly overworked and under-compensated. I created a lifestyle that allows me FREEDOM that I had not known before with one hour a day.
