“The challenge of work-life balance is without question one of the significant struggles faced by modern man.” – Stephen Covey

Work-life balance

Finding the balance between commitment to your business and creating time to do the things you are passionate about is often the greatest challenge for SME owners.

The reality is most business owners are constantly chasing growth. They never question what they actually want from life and how their business can enable those dreams.

What’s your definition of success?

For so many of us, the definition of success is ‘how much money we earn’ or ‘how fast our business is growing’. How would your life change if success was redefined as ‘having time to do the things you love’?

What would your life look like if the definitions of success were like these:

  • Work 4 days a week so I can spend time with the family
  • Play golf at least twice a month during the day
  • Take my mates out on my boat once a month for a fishing trip during the week
  • Have time to be with our children instead of them being in daycare every day

Make the change

I was self-employed for over 30 years. It took me nearly 25 of those years to understand how important having a work-life balance is. We are so used to financial success as the only valid definition of success in life. Unfortunately, we lose sight of WHY we are doing it.

Sometimes it takes an external advisor to help you discover your WHY?  Contact me for an obligation-free chat and make the change you definitely won’t regret.
