When I worked in a corporate job I worked very hard and often had to put in extra hours to complete projects. However, when I left the office, I pretty much-left work behind.
I had the time to coach soccer, go on vacations, and, overall, remain engaged in all aspects of the family. Family time was abundant, and income was predictable and consistent.
As a business owner, I was never off the clock. The thought of failure and losing everything we worked for was always on my mind. There were always issues that needed attention and subjects that needed more research or further contemplation. As a result, I was always preoccupied with the business.
Furthermore, as a business owner, there never seemed to be any time to volunteer, go on vacation for more than three or four days, or help much in the raising of my kids or running of our household. The support I received from my family was critical to my success and helped shape their lives as well. My wife was forced to pick up the slack in running our household and my kids had to become more self-sufficient.
How engaged is your family in the success of your business?
