A few weeks ago, we did a five-week series on our Tuesday tip of the week. It got so much attention that we decided to put it in writing so we can help even more people remove the barriers to business growth. We believe that there are 5 major things (and many more small things) that prevent most businesses from growing. Most, if not all of what you will read here transcends all industries and all professions! We want your business to be successful and because of that we want to share these 5 points with you.
As a business owner have you missed family functions due to work? Your kids’ special occasions or milestones? What about anniversaries? If so you are not alone! According to a study done in mid-2016 of businesses owners in America we find that 81% of them didn’t take a vacation of more than 2 days off in the past calendar year. Of the 19% that did, 89% of them suffered from work distractions such as calls or emergencies that they couldn’t unplug from.
96% reportedly missed special events and things such as birthdays, anniversaries or holidays for work and 75% reported that they dreaded coming to work in their own business! This does not sound like work life balance to us. Is it true that work life balance is impossible? We believe that it is not only possible, but achievable in ways that are easier than you think.
