How can home-based businesses fine-tune the work-life balance?

Answer

Set boundaries and guard them. Many entrepreneurs fall into the trap of working around the clock, sacrificing weekends, sleep, family meals, and breaks to keep their business going. Establish the following boundaries:

  • Time: Set and publish “regular” operating hours and adhere to them. Determine which days you’re going to take off and stick to them. 
  • Space: Designate a room inside your home as “the office/shop” and try to maintain a separation between workspace and living space. 
  • Access: Determine when you will be accessible for professional and personal inquiries.
