Are you running your business? Or, be honest, is it running you?


The problem with your business is that it matters to you.

And, oh boy, it can and will consume you. Every waking hour. Every sleeping hour. At home. At work. And the journey between the two.

That’s the deal. But you have to find ways to look after yourself. Because you look after lots of other people, who depend on you. Accept that working through the night is a rite of passage, and working weekends goes with the territory. But also accept that these can’t become the norm.

Tired? Go home. Come in fresh. Businesses are very good at running you. Don’t let it.
