What Snow Means to an Entrepreneur

One of the most difficult parts of being an entrepreneur is properly balancing your business with everything else in your life. Between family time, appointments, sleep, and other daily responsibilities, it is only possible to spend X amount of time each day focusing solely on your venture. Sometimes multitasking is necessary in order to accomplish everything on the task-list, but it is never easy to try and negotiate with a vendor while driving your kid to hockey practice.

Almost every entrepreneur has to deal with this struggle of balancing their priorities, and the ones who overcome it are usually the ones who are sooner to achieve success. But aside from balancing one's personal life with their business, many entrepreneurs still work full-time or part-time for an employer and are therefore committed to them day-to-day as well. And leaving work early or multitasking in the workplace isn't usually an option. The immediate solution of course is to work until midnight or later to finish everything on the schedule. But in truth, this solution doesn't end up working long-term due to the fact that sleep is too important to lose.

That's why snow days rock. No hockey practice. No work.

Just 16 hours of you and your business.

Minus two hours of course for shoveling. Also minus three hours for entertaining your kids. And one more hour for sitting in front of the fireplace with a remote in one hand and a hot-cocoa in the other.
