I know I’ve talked before about how self-care can go by the wayside when you are trying to build a business. When I quit my job, my initial fear was my drive to work and try to continue building my business. Even though I had a base of steady clients and work before I quit my job, I was still afraid of failure. These days I’m less afraid of failure, but I still want to succeed and keep growing my business, but not at the expense of myself.
Work-life balance has been a struggle for me ever since I started freelancing on the side back in July 2014. At the time, I was trying to balance my full-time job and my freelance business on the side. I was keeping a crazy schedule and the thought of going full-time with my business so I could have better control of my life, my earnings, and my schedule was what was driving me to work such crazy hours.
