If I am completely honest, one of the primary motivations for writing TWEAK IT, was to learn how to make what mattered to me happen every day, on and off the job.
I am an entrepreneur/small business owner. While there are many wonderful benefits to my chosen professional path, there are a few downsides.
For me, and for many small business owners I meet, one of the biggest challenges IS managing our work+life fit.
Perhaps we have a greater degree of flexibility and control, but we often have more limited resources–time, people and money. Therefore, it is very easy to fall into the traps like:
“I’ll just send one more email, and then have dinner with my family.” But then dinner’s over, or
“I can go to the gym tomorrow because I need to finish this proposal.” Then you realize you haven’t moved your body in three weeks.
After researching and writing TWEAK IT and then following the simple weekly work+life fit practice myself for that last few years, I believe small business owners can work AND have a life.
We just have to be a bit more intentional about it.
So I was thrilled when VISA Small Business approached me to be the featured expert on their Facebook page last month!
I offered entrepreneurs/small business owners seven of my best work+life fit tips and challenges.
VISA transformed them into such beautiful graphics, I had to share.
What other tips and challenges would you offer?
