Avoid drains on time and energy

Managing Your Work and Workload

Can you succeed as a consultant and have a balanced life as well?

It’s been said that starting a business is like having a half-time job – eight to eight every day! While people can fall into that kind of lifestyle especially early on, it IS possible to have a balanced life-style – as long as you are willing to put structure into your business and meaningful boundaries in your life.

By the end of our work together, you will know what you need to do for yourself, and the conversations you need to have with your clients and the people around you to have a balanced life.
