How to Make Time for an Online Courses

We are always busy, and it never seems as if we get time to ourselves. Not to mention taking classes. I know there are tons of reasons "why" you can't focus on educational courses. I firmly believe people make time for things they find relevant and valuable. Speaking and dreaming about is a part of the process but at some point, you will have to put it into action. Most of us feel overwhelmed because we have so many responsibilities in our lives. It almost seems as if it's impossible to devote another hour to something else when you're already swamped. Even if it is to help us to grow and improve our lives, it can be difficult to remain motivated and focused when you’re tired. Trust me, I get it, but this hair won't sell itself! Someone has to close the deal. Frequently we allow life to bully us around and we feel as if we have no control over our schedules. The list we make on a weekly basis never will get completed and before you know it months have passed and you still have not accomplished even a quarter of what you planned. I see a lot of you have created New Year's resolutions and you always have not done it for one reason or another. Truth is you have not actually made it a priority in your life and now is the time. When you dream of creating an empire with your online hair business you are confirming that you know you have the ability to be successful as an entrepreneur. I applaud you because you are leveraging yourself as a leader in your industry.

Invest in Time to Learn

If you are trying to figure out how to make more time in your day to free up the time to focus on your Hair University course here are some suggestions.


  • Decide what your priorities are, and I hope one of them is for you to take the online courses that hair university offers. Your next level of success comes from your commitment to improving your knowledge of your products and who you are as an entrepreneur.
  • Identify time during the day that is non-negotiable. Remember you should be in bed at a decent time, and you should wake up at a proper time. Try going to bed at 10 pm (yeah I know) and wake up at 6 am. Therefore, you know from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. is non-negotiable time because you are sleeping, resting and preparing for the next day.
If you work, a nine-to-five most of the day is going to be non-negotiable time. Think about it! From maybe 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. you are at work. However, during your lunch, you can review course information or watch a quick video. Once you get home go ahead and take a minute to relax. Whether that's going to be meditation or just quiet time it’s important to clear your mind so you can focus on the learning process. I suggest you study for about 45 minutes, so you aren’t overwhelmed. Make sure you are in a distraction-free area and that there is minimal noise so you can focus. I know it may sound overwhelming, but I promise you it's better to be busy and accomplishing things than to be working and not achieving anything.

Materials needed for an online course

Alright, hopefully by now you have signed up for one of the free or paid courses under Hair University. If you have, it's obvious you're ready to take your business seriously. You understand that for you to experience a type of growth and success that you desire you must put in the hard work. Below are some of the tools that you will need to make sure that you get the most out of your online course with hair University. I recommend you these supplies whenever you start your session and use it throughout your course.


  • 2-inch binder
  • Multi-colored Post-its
  • Ink pen
  • Pencil
  • Highlighter
  • Dividers
  • Timer
  • Notebook paper
A binder is better than a writing pad or a journal because a two-ring binder is going to help you organize your notes better. Once you get a binder, put your notebook paper in it and use your dividers to separate out sections within your notebook. For example, let's say you enroll in an online course about hair care through Hair University. Go ahead and assemble your binder and prepare to divide it into four sections like the following:


  • The first section will be for hair care terminology and learn the different parts of the hair strand.
  • The second section will be about diseases that affect the hair and scalp.
  • The third section will be about hair products for all types of hair
  • Your final part will be for those hair stylists who are looking to grow their clientele, how this knowledge can help you to engage your client, and how to set the right rates.
