How to Become an Entrepreneur and Still Have a Life

Debt.com Logo By John Rampton of Debt.com | Slide 1 of 7: When it comes to starting and running your own business – whether you’re alone in the venture or with a partner – you will inevitably find yourself working all. the. time. For a while, you may take pride in it, wear your superhuman work ethic as a badge of honor, chalk it up to the passion that comes with doing what you love.
However, after a while, if you’re not careful, you’ll start to feel exhaustion creeping in. Maybe get in a few more fights than usual with your spouse. You may spend days coming home after your kids have gone to sleep and leaving before they’ve awakened. Maybe it’s been months since you’ve seen your non-work friends.
Contrary to what other entrepreneurs may tell you or exhibit in their daily habits, this kind of home and life neglect is not par for the course. It's not necessary to get your startup off the ground, and more importantly, not healthy in any way. When it comes to maintaining a work-life balance, make sure you choose life.
