5 Tips for Balancing your Family and Business

Weekly Date With Spouse—  The key is blocking out time where one can focus on each other without any distractions. This allows us to catch up on everything going on in our lives and to show our love to each other.

Create Blocks of Time For Work and Family—Put together a work and family schedule. Block out time for your career and for us to be together that will transition to a plan for your entire family. We delineate blocks of time to spend time with each of the children and together as a family. This will make a HUGE difference.

Get The Support From Your SpouseThe only way you are going to achieve these goals is with the support of your spouse. Just as it would be unwise to think you can build a successful business without the support of your business partner, you won’t build a successful marriage, family life and career without the support of your spouse.


  
Set Your Family and Business Goals—I believe the first step to achieving anything important is to begin by identifying your goals. If you have not already done so, pull out a pad of paper and write down your career, marriage and family goals.
Be Present—When you are with your family, try to stop thinking about everything going on in your life, and focus on your family. Use your time together to ask questions and discuss what is going on in their lives.
