As entrepreneurs we all know that our work and lives are closely intertwined, particularly when we are bootstrapping our businesses in the early days. It’s almost impossible to get the work/life balance we aspire to when we are juggling our roles as company director, bookkeeper, sales person, administrator, customer service manager - you name it! Each of these roles is critical to our business success but it doesn’t leave much time for anything else - especially a so called ‘normal’ kind of life by other people’s standards. The life of an entrepreneur can be something of a roller-coaster. So, we need to appreciate that life and work are almost impossible to separate, but be ready to grab any free moment that presents itself and use it as our time to stop, rewind and refresh.
