Just as launching your new business requires research and hard work, maintaining personal connections, relationships, family roles, and activities also requires active attention. Rather than an afterthought, homelife should serve as an anchor you can pivot from to tackle the challenges of business ownership. Determining how to keep that anchor stable while building your firm is a precarious, yet achievable task.
