When you receive a blog from an HR consultant about work-life balance, you are probably already predicting what we are going to say.…

….Quality time off to relax is vital ….No one can fire on all cylinders 24/7 ….there is legislation around working hours ….you must ensure you don’t break the law when it comes to how you require your staff to attend work.… 

Of course, these things are important and all have their place, however, we are business owners too and we understand that sometimes it feels like there are not enough hours in the day.  

We know the pressures of running the show, managing a team, and trying to hold it all together which is why we feel qualified to ask you to take a few minutes to look at your work-life balance as the owner of the business.

On occasions we all need to put in long hours if we want to reach our goals, make more sales, and meet our financial obligations. But the reality is that you can’t serve anyone, including yourself, if you’re constantly tired, burnt out, and spinning way too many plates at the same time. 

No one said that running a business was going to be easy, but it can be a lot less stressful when you recognise that you aren’t a machine. 

One of the best things that you can do right now, if you feel things are about to start spiralling out of control, is delegate and outsource the things that you’re no good at

If you’re spending half your time firefighting people management issues, or focusing on things that don’t play to your strengths you are limiting your earning potential.
