Your business is supposed to serve your life, not your life serving your business.
It’s easy to forget, but that is probably what you felt your business would be when you first got into business. And I know how easy it is to drift into a never-ending compromise in your personal life to serve your business.
That’s not to say I agree with the speakers who confess that they put hours upon hours into their business to become a success, but they sacrificed their personal lives in the process. You shouldn’t have to do the same.
Well, I feel you shouldn’t sacrifice your personal life forever but that you do have to do the work and invest the time to gain control of your business or it will always control you.
So, I do feel you have to spend your time, your effort and even some of your savings if you’re going to make your company a success.
What I also believe is you need to learn how to work smarter, not harder.
There’s a big difference.
