How to Gain Work-Life Balance as an Entrepreneur

The entire concept of "work-life balance" feels awful to me. I imagine a double sided scale that is constantly having weight added to it and you have to try to keep it in balance. If you add a little to the work side, then you're out of balance and need to add a little to the life side. Exhausting.

HOWEVER! Almost every entrepreneur I talk to makes reference to wanting better work-life balance, so we definitely need to talk about how to gain work-life balance as an entrepreneur..

Ready for the most important sentence in this post? 


Until you define what "work-life balance" means for YOU, you cannot reach it.

It's a very vague term. Do you want balance in how you spend your time, your energy, your thoughts, or something else? Is balance really more of a 80-20 ratio? Or 40-60? You get to decide! And once you decide on your definition of work-life balance, you can go about creating it. 

For me, work-life balance is all about mindset and being intentional. Whatever I'm doing, I want to be all in -- fully present, and doing it on purpose.

  • That means if I'm watching TV with my family, I want to be all in. Single-tasking. Not also scrolling through Pinterest or checking emails. 
  • When I'm working, I want to fully focus on one task at a time. Mind and body in the moment. 

So here's your homework:
