“The reason behind doing a podcast with this episode, for me, is because a lot of the time people share, on podcasts and interviews, their business wins and it’s all very business focused. BUT I’m really interested about this whole other personal side of running a business, that there’s cost involved with your relationship and your family and friendships. And that’s the stuff that can be impacted when you’re a business owner. I love to work, I get so much fulfilment and passion for my business. It’s kinda like a hobby for me. So when I’ve got this thing that I really want to spend as much time as possible, and then you’re working really long hours, I kinda feel like I lose out on that passion.”

 

Having your own business can feel amazing. Even though it requires long working hours, it brings joy and flexibility in your daily life. On the other hand, managing your business AND having a family comes with a price. How can you juggle between the two and make sure that both get enough of your attention? How do you set healthy boundaries between working from home and spending time with your family?
