    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 don’t enjoy a balance, it is not likely to sustain success…which 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.🙌🏼

    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.
