Happy Wednesday! It is time for another Wednesday's Online Business Mistake. I have been so busy this last week that I almost forgot today was Wednesday. It is a good thing to be busy really, just made the time fly by. Today I would like to talk about balancing work and family. This is very important!
Working online or running an online business can occupy a lot of your time. I know, I used to really bust my bottom end online (still do but not as bad.) It can take a lot of time away from the family. This happens to many people, especially in the beginning when they are first starting to work online.
We know that you need to put a lot of time in, I am not going to tell you that you don't. You just have to make sure to stick to a schedule and add family time to your schedule. I know if you are new to working online, you are probably thinking there is no way that people would put the computer before family. It does happen and I have done it, not intentionally tho. You lose track of time while doing what you can to make the business run smooth. I always fed them, don't get me wrong. I have never neglected family, but I used to spend way too much time working on the computer.
Taking a break with the family and going on a walk or even on a day trip can be quite fun and relaxing for all. It may help you after all! You can be refreshed when you return to work and you will have had a nice quality day with the family.
Don't let working online or starting your own business ruin your family. It can happen easily, too easily. Make a schedule of time each day that you will spend just having fun with the kids. Not including cooking dinner, actual fun family time. Do this each day and you will keep your family as a healthy happy family. Make sure that you do not spend all of your waking time online, your family will thank you!
