How do you maintain a good work-life balance?

 

Laura - It’s tricky - you just do the best you can and outsource whatever you can like the cleaning, ironing etc - anything that stops you spending time with your kids when you’re not working.  And make the most of the family time you do have.

Sally- Try and find a little bit if time each day to re-group and check the balance...if it is off balance...re think it. Small changes make huge differences.

Megan - A tough question for a business owner... try each day to take 5 or 30 for a run or cuddles with the kids.

What’s an average day like now you’re the boss?

Sally - So much harder than when I wasn't!

Megan - Hard work…juggling school runs with events, business development and then staff worries…always something to keep you on your toes.

What do you do to wind-down after a long day at work?

 

Laura - Run, cook dinner or drink wine depending on the day :) Except on a Friday - we will often gather the troops and head to the pub to feed the kids and wind down.
