A person who is limited to small, petty, or unimportant things.

you mean "small-timer" (one word. They don't mean a timer that happens to be small)
It means you are not rich, powerful or important, are not a "mover and shaker"

Not in the big time. Big time is important. small time is unimportant. I would not like someone calling me, or what I do, as unimportant, myself. There is no other reason to call you small-timer except to say that you and what you do are small, worth basically nothing. I would be very insulted and react. But that is me.

It means that they see you as a person who has never tried to make more of themselves. You have never tried to better yourself or get ahead further in your life.

Often said to a person that thinks he has a big influence on those around him. "You're just a small timer".But really doesn't.
This is used a lot in real estate and investing in stocks. Meaning a person with small amount of money to invest. I was a "small time" real estate investor with my friend, in the 70s.Source(s): Native American English speaker.

It means that they regard you as being a person without any real ambition. A no-hoper, some would say.
