People say to me “you are always working.” I feel as though there is always a time when I am working even when I am off. Even if I have a team. This is why I became an entrepreneur. I like the excitement and thrill that comes with it.
Ideas can come to me at any time and I need to work to release my mind.
Someone said ‘you shouldn’t work on the weekends.’ I do not want a typical 9-5 and can work for a short amount of time on the weekends and spend the rest of the time with my son if I want to.
I love my career and love being an entrepreneur. The saying ‘if you love what you do, you won’t feel like you ever worked a day in your life.’ This is 100% true and I couldn’t agree more with it.
The truth is, I work when I want to work. If that is 3 AM when I wake up from a dream and get inspired then so be it. There is nothing wrong with working too much, as long as you can balance life.
I believe that most days, I do have a good balance in life. I do also have boundaries. I think that being a single mom allows for these items to be much more flexible.
Whenever I want to attend something whether, with my son or alone, I always make sure to think is the best option for my time and son. If it is not, then I decline and move on. This took a lot of discipline over the years. It is important to understand and have balance.
I have realized over the years that it is okay to say no and that I can’t attend everything. Once you realize this, the balance comes into play much easier.
