Coordinating Your Business & Family

Many times as an entrepreneur we have high hopes of starting & developing 1 or more successful businesses. In the process of building a new  business or working on the current one that you have, you may forget about family. Sometimes you may forget or don’t pay enough attention to how is this going to affect your family or the ones closet in your life.

Starting & managing a business can take a lot out of you. Many things around the life and success of your business ventures or projects should start out with a strategic plan & support. Why?

Because without strategically planning things can lead to disorganization, various problems in your company, problems with family, friends etc… If your entrepreneurial adventures have some affect on your family or close ones then create a plan; a strategic one at that.

Let your family know that this is a business and things have to get done but there will be family time soon & stick to the plan! When you have a strategic plan to make time for both: business & family, you could possibly create & maintain a sense of balance which could possibly lead to success in both areas.

Take into account those around you. Then you all can coordinate your schedules together. Take time out each week or month to have a meeting with them to discuss up coming events, plans etc…. Then decide how you all will work them out. Stick To The Plan!!

Have these things written out on paper, on your computer, personal calendar etc… Post them where every one involved can see them or be a reminder to you. That way, you all will know what’s going on (or supposed to be) in the coming days or weeks. Then you won’t have any surprises (hopefully).

In your plan you can leave some room for adjustments and problems but with your plan by your side you’ll see your way through a crisis.

Try to get more assistance around the home. Schedule out personal time, family time, quiet time for you to reflect, not too much till you start slacking in your business. Slacking off will show, your customers & associates might notice & that’s bad for business. Put aside enough time to just relax & release then come back to business refreshed. Let your family, close ones or loved ones help you out in your business in small ways.

A little strategic planning goes a long way, it can help you & benefit your business, your family & you in the long run.
