We have our own businesses so we can do the work that we enjoy doing.

Let’s be honest: Finding work / life balance isn’t easy!

In this week’s episode, we’re discussing work / life balance, and how we deal with it both as entrepreneurs and a working couple. We’re sharing how both of us have been out of balance lately, how we’re dealing with it now and moving forward, and how it affects our relationship. Enjoy!

If you need help, just ask for what you need.

We’re not machines!

In this episode:

  • How we define work / life balance
  • Why we don’t believe in a perfect balance between work and life
  • Why taking a break is so important
  • When and how to ask for help
  • Optimizing your time
  • How meal planning helps with our work / life balance
  • How communication helps with our work / life balance

There are things you can’t plan for and all you can really do is ride the storm.
