10 Tips for a balanced life

  1. Plan ahead for your business dinners, children's activities and family holidays.
  2. Delegate to staff at work or at ome. And use modern appliances and gadget.
  3. Strike a balance between spending time with your partner and children as well as your business. In the excitement of branching out on your own, you may get caught up and end up working on weekends.
  4. Measure your skills and training against potential competition. Don't stay at home, cut off from the world, instead join networking groups.
  5. Test the market your product or service will be in before starting or expanding your business.
  6. Never be afraid to ask advice from people in your intended business or related fields for a fresher point of view.
  7. When you are self employed, you can't afford to be ill so maintain a healthy lifestyle, get health insurance and go for regular medical checkups.
  8. The image you project reflects your business.
  9. Brush up on your social skills like how to greet someone for the first time, and keep up to date with what's going on in current affairs.
  10. Learn about the money aspects of your business - and try to keep your business and personal money separate. Seek professional advice if necessary.
