The Wedding Business Work-Life Balance Enigma
“If only there were more hours in the day”.
How often have you said that, thought that or screamed it?
Time is our only non-renewable asset, once you’ve used time there is no getting it back and also not knowing how much time we have left.
Christ, that went a bit morbid for a wedding business blog.
But the truth as you already know is that you only have a certain amount of hours in each day.
There’s always more work to do
If you’ve been running your business any length of time at all then you’ll already know this.
No matter how much work you do on any given day there is always more work to do.
You can sometimes try and start on the following days work to get ahead or maybe go back to yesterday’s work that didn’t quite get finished.
As a business owner, particularly a solo entrepreneur, you’ll always want to do as much as possible because the more you do that better the chance of your business succeeding, right?
It’s of vital importance that you’re working on the right things.
Working on the right things will give you a better chance of success – you need to be working smarter, not harder.
What’s the point though?
Did you start up your wedding business because you wanted to work really hard?
I’m guessing probably not.
You probably did it because you wanted to get paid for doing something that you love doing.
You also probably had aspirations of the joy of being your own boss and taking the time out to do the things that you enjoy doing with your life, whether that be time with a partner, time with your family, doing leisure activities or just having a lay in when you want one.
If you’re working every waking minute of the day on your wedding business then you are doing something fundamentally wrong.
Unless your only goal in life is to have a successful wedding business and nothing else.
So, what’s the point in working so hard if it is at the cost of not being able to do the things that you want to do in your life?
Wouldn’t you rather be happy?
