When running a business, especially one you’ve built from the ground up, one of the hardest things to do is accept that it’s OK to occasionally step away from day-to-day management. While it’s natural to want to eat, live and breathe your business, it’s not healthy.

Taking a break is an important part of the balance between business and life. One person who understands that is Roland Frasier.

Frasier, a strategic investor who has bought and sold more than 100 public and private companies, sees the long-term vision when dealing with businesses.

“A repeatable business that you are not essential to is important to your happiness, health and home life, and the ability to hopefully have the option to sell the business,” he explains.

In the latest episode of the “Winning on Main Street” podcast, we sit down with Frasier, co-founder and/or principal of five Inc. Magazine’s fastest growing companies. Tune in as he shares his tips on how to be successful in business while balancing time for yourself.
