[Video] Make Work-Life Balance a Priority

Work-life balance may sound like just another corporate buzzword. But entrepreneurs do 30% of your work outside of normal work hours.

That doesn’t sound much like balance to me. That’s valuable time you could be spending with friends and family.

Here are a few ways to take back your personal time.

Schedule time to focus.

The most productive people get more done when they:

  • Get out of the office to reduce distractions.
  • Turn off push notifications.
  • Check email in blocks, not as they come in.

Empower your team.

If there are things you can trust your staff to do, delegate those tasks!

It’s incredible what your team will do when they feel trusted. Trust can lead to higher productivity and efficiency. A more autonomous team will lead to you getting pinged far less often.

And, it helps you identify top talent for promotions and other roles.

Automate repetitive tasks.

Do you feel like you do the same tasks every day? Repetitive tasks are huge time sucks.

Your team isn’t the only thing that could be more autonomous. Automation software can do the work ahead of time and schedule it to happen later.

There are accessible, easy-to-use tools and software for things like:

  • Text & email marketing
  • Social media posting
  • Appointment booking
  • And more

No surprise here: One of those tools is Thryv. Click that orange button to check it out, or subscribe now below to get more free business tips.
