One of the issues
every entrepreneur faces
when building a business
is the separation of business and personal
because many of our first ‘employees’
are friends and family,
and none of us
truly leave our businesses
at 5 o’clock.

Megan Heine,
owner (with her husband)
of Brockton Villa Restaurant
and Beaumont’s Eatery
agrees.
“Owning a family business
can be really consuming
in terms of your family time,
and social life
—you are thinking about it all the time.”

“We try to schedule our meetings
outside the home, in an office
—those are the places
where we talk about business
and our decision making happens.”

You can’t turn off your thinking
or your worrying
at 5pm.
You CAN save the business discussions
for business hours.
