Work/Life Balance for the Self-Employed

Balancing your work and personal life is an ongoing challenge for anyone, let alone the small business person. How are you doing?

A starting point is knowing what you want out of life and out of your work. If your answer is “more” then you may have a balance problem. Having a definition of success for your business and possibly for your life is a meaningful beginning. If you don’t know what you really want out of life, how will you know that you have achieved it?  Having kids adds an extra dimension to the equation and they can find “not now, maybe later” an unsatisfying response to their needs. Most things worth having take focus and dedication. It is the same for work/life balance.

This video from CBS – Money Watch has some interesting tips about how to manage your balance. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505143_162-57329411/the-best-way-to-achieve-healthy-work-life-balance/?tag=nl.e857.

    Good food for thought Len. Another thing I find helpful being self-employed and in the wellness field is actually dedicated time where it is just family time with no computers, phones etc. This time allows everyone just to be present with each other, quality vs quantity of time.
