    Working 50 hours a week allows her to enjoy her kids? USA has a crazy understanding of work-life balance. I honestly think if you want to enjoy your kids, 30h is optimal and 40h is a struggle.

    I love this story as it personifies what is possible with hard work, perseverance and believing in YOU! I do believe wholeheartedly that for those growing a business, it is equally important to focus on commitment to work life balance as it is to focus on the company. If you burn the candle at both ends and donโ€™t enjoy a balance, it is not likely to sustain successโ€ฆwhich is why half of businesses close by year 5. You CAN do it all, just remember to prioritize YOU as much as your business! Best wishes to all.๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

    Despite the fact that stock prices fluctuate, what is the best method for capitalizing on the current market? I'm still undecided about investing $400k in my stock portfolio.
