Top tip for a 20 hour a week (or less!) business:
Leveraging! Build a group training programme where you can put your expertise online and record yourself so you can leverage your one recording, write everything once and have this in place to be used again and again. The more you can leverage your time the better it gets and online trainings help you get out there as much as poss.
