Draw a line between work and life, advises entrepreneur Veronica Kirin. When you’re starting a business you need to be intentional about planning down time, so you don’t find yourself becoming a workaholic.

Veronica Kirin is an anthropologist turned serial entrepreneur.  She loves working closely with clients to help them reach their goals.  Her first business, Green Cup Design, began as a freelance web design venture and has grown into digital maintenance for small businesses.

 

Key Takeaways

  • Are you a workaholic?
  • Draw a line between your work and your life.
    • Set a hard-stop time for yourself.
    • Don’t work during your days off.
    • Set a slower pace in the morning during your days off.
    • Try not to get into “checklist mode” during down times.
  • Set personal goals for yourself, not just for your business.
  • Focus on self-care.
  • Create a process to transition into work-mode in the morning and back into unplugged mode in the evening.
  • Make an effort to invest in personal relationships.
    • Schedule recurring plans with friends.
    • Make travel plans.
  • Give yourself an “alternate schedule” with extra long weekends every now and then.
