Time Management for Webcam Models
Every successful cam models knows the importance of time management. As the saying goes, time is money. This couldn’t be more true when it comes to camming. Since you’re your own boss and make your own hours, it’s up to you to motivate yourself and manage everything on your own. There isn’t a boss there to scold you or co-workers around to snitch on you. From the first day you start camming, you need to instill proper time management skills into your daily routine.
One of the easiest things you can do is create a ‘to-do’ list every night before bed. Take a few minutes to jot down the things you need to accomplish the next day and a list of the extra things you’d like to get done. Prioritize the most important things on the list and put those on the top so you get them done first. It feels so good to cross things off a to-do list, and that can really help to motivate you. If there’s extra things you didn’t get it, move them to the next day’s list and try to do those first so you don’t get even more behind.
Set a schedule and stick to it! Set yourself up a weekly schedule to live by. This should include what days you’re gonna cam, how long you’re gonna cam for, goals for the day, time set aside for shooting content, updating your website or blog, shooting customs, promotion, etc. These are all very important aspects of your business, and you need to make sure you’re sticking with them. Falling behind even just one day can really put a damper on things and screw up your entire weekly schedule.
When determining what days and for how long you’re gonna cam, you should definitely consider your peak hours. With some experimentation, you’ll be able to figure out what hours are the most profitable for you on cam. Schedule the rest of your tasks for the day around that since camming is likely what will be earning you the majority of your pay. Always make it a priority to get on cam during your peak hours. At the end of the day when you’re checking your earnings, you’ll be happy you motivated yourself to get on when it’s easiest to make money instead of struggling through slow hours and wasting time trying to reach your goal for that day.
Taking time out for yourself is also very important. No one can work all the time. Schedule in a fun little activity, hobby time, nap time, or anything else that gives you a small break. It can be very refreshing to get away from work, even if it’s just for a little bit. And that could be just the motivation you need to reset and get back out there working harder than ever.
It’s inevitable that your schedule isn’t gonna be perfect at first and that there may be unexpected things that pop up throughout the week. The important thing is that you have one in place and stick to it as best as possible. Despite what some people might think, being a cam girl can definitely be stressful and take a toll on you. But with proper motivation and time management skills, you’ll be able to push through all the struggles with a smile on your face and a dildo in your… well… you know. 😛
