Time Management > About Michelle
Hi, my name is Michelle. I am the creator of Taming Time, a website designed to help you manage your time better.
I currently have no fixed place I call home. In 2010 my hubby and I left our hometown and sold most of our belongings have become part of the 'long-term travel crowd'. Time management (and some other stuff) made this possible. I have learned that if you manage your time the sensible way, you will be rewarded.
Learning to Tame Time
Time management is boooooooring! Who wants to be a machine that makes sure every second of their day is carefully allocated? Do you want to be a productivity machine? Me neither!! Thats is what I thought time management meant. It doesn't.
I wanted to get more out of life, but I always found I was busy, busy. I decided to look into "this time management thing" and I quickly learned that there is a right and wrong way to approach time management. I am first and foremost someone who is interested in living a happy, balanced and flexible lifestyle. I have no interest in scheduling every minute of every day.
What I wanted to gain from learning about time management was how to have more time to do the things I loved, whilst still earning enough money to do them (I have been self-employed since 2007).
I was never someone who knew 'what I wanted to do when I grew up' and my interests have been rather varied. I wanted the time to look into the things I was interested in without affecting my income. I was also interested in increasing my income so that I could spend more time doing things I enjoyed.
After unlocking this "secret" I realized that my life had been enriched more than I thought possible. Not because I am some kind of time management ninja - but simply because just being aware of how you spend your time enriches your life. I am not behind any one time management 'system' or 'technique'. Why? As individuals we all have different interests, demands and responsibilities and there is no such thing as a one size fits all time management system.
Any goal you have, anything you want to achieve; become the master of your time and it will happen!! There is an old expression that if you really want to learn something well - teach it. Taming Time is here so you can follow me on my path to better time management, and hopefully learn a thing or two in the process!!
Make the choice, and invest the time to transform your life.
What Effective Time Management has Done for Me
Taming Time Also Pays My Bills
Well not on its own.
Between my hubby and myself we own 5 income generating content websites like Taming Time. What is special about that? Our online business allows us to live anywhere in the world and work via the internet.
I get asked quite often how we make money through our websites, especially as we don't currently sell anything. Instead of telling everyone the same thing I put together this article outlining how our websites make us passive income.
