Getting the balance right

If there's one thing that all women entrepreneurs know only too well, it's that its not a 9 to 5 job. The trick to a successful entrepreneurial life is all about finding a balance. The temptation is often to throw yourself into a 24/7 business routine, which means that you eat, sleep and think your business to the exclusion of all else. Yet, the fat is you need to be productive and creative when required, whilst also finding that precious time for yourself and your family. You also need to focus on keeping your own body and mind healthy in order to cope with business demands. Eat regularly and recognise that sleep is not an expense to be cut down. Don't burn yourself out at the start-up stage; remember, you are in it for the long-haul.
