My life used to be absolutely consumed by work and I felt like I was always on the grind. Since starting my own business, I love the flexibility it’s given me to have autonomy over my schedule and to prioritize my mental health.

Work-life balance is one of the most important things for me to maintain especially working in the accounting world. Many people don’t realize that for 4 months out of the year we essentially work 15+ hour days with barely any days off. While I love serving my clients and the thrill of the rush, it is very tolling.

Anyone that says that a work life balance is not possible… is wrong. However, anyone that says a work life balance is easy…is also wrong. Work life balance is probably one of the most difficult things to manage. But necessary. I used to burn the midnight oil like no one’s business. I was also a single, young woman eager to find my place. That work life balance one of the things that I am constantly trying to achieve. I think the key to figuring out my balance is realizing that I can’t do it all. Knowing my limits. Don’t get my wrong, I push my limits but I know what they are. Read more>>
