This is a favourite saying that hangs prominently on a wall in my house. It reminds me that through life's ups and downs, it's important you find a reason to enjoy.
I have another favourite saying that keeps me focused.
"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone" - Neale Donald Walsch
Upon reflection it has become the theme of my life journey. Leaving the corporate world in 2007 to take on the biggest vocation of my life – grow and keep tiny new humans alive, eek! – was the most rewarding and most challenging adventure of all.
In an attempt to create the work/life balance that suited my family, I delved into the world of the home-based business. Building my own businesses was frustrating, stimulating, upskilling and rewarding. I made lots of mistakes, got lots of things right, learnt something new every day and improved as a result.
As it turned out, direct selling was not the right type of business for me. My corporate born talents stirred strong and I knew I had to get back to the work I loved. It was important to me that I make a real impact for the people I serve. I earned my Certification with the International Association of Online Business Managers and have never looked back.
Partnering with clients to grow their already successful business with automated processes and effective planning is where my passion lies. Establishing solid systems, creating the right space for a great team to work at their best and projects planned and managed effectively are the three top focus areas where my clients benefit.
When you achieve your work/life balance, we both win.
Everyone needs balance in their work and life. When I’m not working, I’m trying to nail that parenting gig, celebrating at every opportunity with my nearest and dearest or looking for a fun adventure. I long to return to Africa – this time with my kids in tow to show them the wonders I was lucky enough to experience on a 6 month overland journey many moons ago.
What would you do with your time when you get the work/life balance you desire?
