How to successfully manage your business and your life

Heather Frame - Wednesday, February 20, 2019

If you’re like most business owners, you have more to do than time to do it.


But too many entrepreneurs get so wrapped up in their business, they forget to take care of the other aspects of their lives.  And the results can be devastating!  Families are neglected, friends are lost, and physical and mental health of the business owner declines (just to name a few).


So here are some tips to successfully manage your business and your life:


§  Put systems in place – Mistakes are made when processes are not systematized.  When processes are consistent, fewer mistakes are made and there are fewer fires to put out.

§  Take the day off – Despite the temptation to work a 7-day week, take at least one day for yourself.  You will see  your productivity and your health improve (not to mention how happy your family will be to see you)

§  Go home – Set a time schedule for yourself.  Schedule the number of hours you will work and stick to that plan.

§  Set your priorities – There’s always another crisis to save.  So be sure to make special occasions with friends and family a top priority.  Don’t allow a business ‘disaster’ to hold you back.  After all, there’s bound to be another one tomorrow.


You’ve probably heard all these tips before, but unless you are willing to take these suggestions to heart and make a change, then you’ll never be able to effectively manage your life.


And remember, nobody ever lay on their deathbed wishing they had spent more time at the office!
