Is your business taking over your life? This is an important question to ask as you check in with yourself. It may be more accurate to ask the people around you what they are seeing. We business owners focus on putting out daily fires in our business to the point that we have no awareness of how other people see us, and those whom we love the most are watching us struggle and suffer. Don’t we owe it to them (and ourselves) to do better?


I wrote the book, The 4 Week Vacation, to help business owners learn that work supports life and not the other way around. We developed our Better Business Better Life Jumpstart to help entrepreneurs and small business owners learn to recognize the signs that their businesses are taking over their lives so they can stop the cycle before it accelerates to burnout. In today’s episode, I want to give you some important questions to ask to help you figure out if your business is taking over your life, along with steps you can take to reverse the trend.


Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.
