Achieving work-life balance can be tough for many people. As a husband and a father of three, I know how challenging this can be, but as a business author and a business coach, I have helped many people achieve proper work-life balance. In this video course, I am going to share with you the best practices that we have discovered through the years to achieve that kind of balance. As I am going through the videos, ask yourself the question, how does this apply to me? Occasionally, you will see a video topic and you will think that doesn't apply to me; but focus on the principles instead and you will find ways that you can take action. Now let us get started. Learn how to have it all and enjoy it all by balancing your life and work. In this eBook, author and business coach David Crawford explores smart strategies to make work a focus at work and give yourself time to enjoy your time at home. In the bonus Q&A chapter, he tackles tough questions like these: What are the warning signs that my life is out of balance? How do I keep balance when I travel so frequently? How do I balance work, life, and school? Achieving a balance between work and daily life is the goal of many people seeking to start an online business. There are many things to consider, including the work schedule you will be able to maintain while working from your home computer, the ability to earn sufficient income to meet all of your financial obligations, and the impact this will have on your family. Let's take a closer look at each one of these. Working outside of the home typically requires that you leave your home very early in the morning and not return until ten or twelve hours later. While I was working as a classroom teacher I would leave my house before six in the morning to avoid rush hour traffic, and would usually get home by five or six in the evening. During the winter months it was dark when I left and when I returned, and many days I questioned whether it was worth it to own a house if I was seldom there to enjoy it in the daylight. Working from home gives you the opportunity to enjoy your home and surroundings by working the days and hours that are best for you. You must have the ability to earn enough money to pay your bills, and it is typical for any new business endeavor to take time to get off the ground. You must jump right in and learn how to create income by offering your skills and services to others. At the same time you will be learning how to create your own information products and use affiliate marketing to start becoming profitable as soon as possible. You will not have the overhead of having a retail store or other offline business, so this will make it much easier for you to be in the black. Initially your family may be very excited at the thought of you being able to work from home, but this can quickly become an issue if they are not made to understand that you are working during certain hours. I recommend sitting down with your family every week to let them know what you are doing. If you are working from an extra bedroom or the den, give them a signal for when they may interrupt you and when they must allow you to work without any noise or other distractions. It is your job to let them know what is appropriate and how they can help you to be more successful. Time management comes into play here as you grow your business. Set aside time each day to enjoy your family and share in their activities and accomplishments. As you can see, there is much to think about when starting to work from home. However, learning how to balance work and life will be well worth the effort you are making. Get more insights from this eBook!
