With the start of the New Year, many people find themselves reflecting on what’s important and resolving to make personal changes. For those of us in the workforce, this often means trying, yet again, to find a better balance between our personal and professional lives. In fact, one of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to spend more time with our family, our children and our friends.
Six years ago, my wife and I took this to heart and started our own business together. Now, instead of balancing work-life and home-life, we find ourselves blending both in ways that allow us to finally have the life we both craved. Neither one of us would ever go back to our full-time jobs in a typical office environment where, between the office politics and our daily commute, we spent little quality time with the people who truly mattered to us. Yet, working together, sometimes while children are in the house, hasn’t always been easy. We’ve learned a lot over the past six years as we’ve grown our business to where it has supported over 700 work from home customer service representatives.
Confucius says, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Taken a step further, choosing a business that lets you work with the one you love can lead to an even better life.
