In this week’s podcast episode, you’re going to learn about 5 important pillars of your life that you’ll want to wrangle to help you balance your private practice with the priorities in your life.
So, how many times have you heard the phrase, “work-life balance”?
It seems like something we hear a lot about, especially as entrepreneurs.
I think it’s because it’s something we all truly crave, deep down; to be doing work that we love without excluding the other parts that make our lives uniquely and beautifully ours.
I know it’s something I’ve struggled with.
My wife and I both own our own businesses (she’s got a private practice and I’ve got this here online marketing for therapists business) so life can tend to get a bit off-kilter as we grind out a routine of work, babysitters, family time, meal-planning, etc.
The problem is that we often tend to get on this cycle where we’re trying to give all the buckets of our life the attention we think they need, but without stopping to assess, evaluate and pivot from time to time, balance can feel pretty far off.
If you’re feeling like your private practice has taken over your life and things are a bit out of whack, give this episode a listen!
To help you get started working toward a work-life balance that feels good to you, I chatted with my friend, Allison Puryear from Abundance Practice Building.
