When you are an entrepreneur you often live, eat and breathe your business. I personally have worked hard to achieve that illustrious goal of “work-life” balance and know that it is important to have good habits personally if I want to succeed professionally. It meant breaking some bad habits and forming new ones which is often easier said than done. But having this balance is important – especially important during the holiday season. At Just Between Friends we place a high premium on work-life balance. Our franchise opportunity
is family-friendly and that offers flexible hours. My number one piece of advice to other entrepreneurs is to schedule your personal time in your daily planner – just as you would client meetings and other work-related tasks. Treat your time with family & friends with the same importance as you treat your business. A few years ago when my daughter was a senior in high school and an avid tennis player. I had a goal to attend all of her matches that year. I put them all in my calendar in advance and planned my work around them. I was able to attend all but one. I am so happy I did that. Those are memories and good times that will stay with us forever. I am always searching for ideas and ways to improve myself, my company and my life. I love this article from Entrepreneur on “Five Personal Habits That Will Hurt Your Business”
. It’s a fast read with some great takeaways. Enjoy! And remember to make time for you and your loved ones.
