How Do You Find BalanceFinding Balance

Since I launched my business, I have been trying to find a balance between my full-time job and my new business. I anticipated my business taking off slowly and able to manage it on a part-time basis.  However, I don’t think I considered the fact that my business may take off within a month or two and then I would find myself in a tight situation.

Fast forward a few months and my business has taken off! I’m happy to say it has, however, now I am having a tough time finding a balance between the two.

How does one do it?

That’s a good question! I’m working on creating a daily schedule.

  • 8 a – 4 p – Full-time Job
  • 6 p – 8 p & Weekends – Business

However, it’s not working. I am being contacted 24/7 for my business. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I am passionate about my building my business and helping others. I take pride in the work I do and networking with people.

My full-time job is what pays the bills. How many people are actually passionate about a “job” that “pays the bills”.  Not many that I know of. This type of job is a necessity for “survival”. Providing for your family is the ultimate goal.

So, how do you find balance?

I’m not sure yet. I’m struggling with this. I’m spending so much time promoting, I can barely write and publish a blog post. Again, I’m not complaining. I enjoy having people trust in me and my business.

I found myself joking with a fellow Freelancer about needing a Virtual Assistant to help me out. Of course, she too could use one. But how do we justify the cost?

Is this the only way to find Balance until I can be a full-time Independent Contractor? It is possible I could be overreacting a bit. I could stay up all night working on my business. However, I can’t neglect my family like that. I’m already feeling guilty. What’s the saying? No pain, no gain?

In order to BUILD, we must be SOCIAL and not lurking in the shadows. Let’s look at why I’m so huge into promotion!

From Visually.

Yes, the struggle is there because I am pushing and visible on Social Media. But I’m just not “visible”, I’m networking! It all takes time.

Over to you

I will find the balance I seek. I just need to plan accordingly to make it happen. I know I’m not alone in this journey and I want to hear from you.
