Tips for Managing Work Life and Home Life as an Entrepreneur
The art of balancing work and home life has always been difficult to perfect. In fact, perfecting this balance is simply not possible. Learning ways to manage the two and still be somewhat successful at either is a more likely task to accomplish or master. For an entrepreneur, the quest for home and work life balance poses a few more unique challenges; but it can be done. As an entrepreneur, you can’t blame the boss for making you late for child’s soccer game or a special dinner. You also can’t go to the office and say you are late because you and your wife had a problem with one of the kids if it is not the case. As an entrepreneur, it all falls on you. You are the boss, the ship’s captain, all success and failure at either your career or home may very well rest entirely on your shoulders. While this fact alone may scare you out of even trying to balance the two worlds, don’t let it. Balance and managing both worlds effectively can be done.
Both worlds require energy, dedication, passion and time. When you are an entrepreneur and you have a family, you need support. It is vital that your family at home supports your entrepreneurial pursuits and can provide real meaningful encouragement. As for those involved in your work venture, they must also support the fact that you do have a home life and attention needs to be on them for some period of time. You need both to also believe in your vision and success enough to help you make it a reality. Without the support of a work team, your family may resent being tossed to the wayside just as your work team may also resent any time you focus on your family. If your family doesn’t understand, believe or support your venture, your success will feel empty and it will undoubtedly be harder to come by.

How the Way You Dress Can Affect Your Bottom Line
The business world is competitive by nature. It is a proven fact that you are judged in the work place on more than just your work performance. While it is unethical and unlawful to judge, promote or even terminate someone based on appearance, how you dress does convey a message and does affect the path of your career. How you choose to dress and present yourself each day in the work place can directly affect your income potential.
Most offices have a dress code. Some businesses adhere to a very strict professional dress standard; others are a little more lenient and relaxed. The first thing you need to do when you enter the professional world is to be fully aware of the dress code. This is fairly easy to do once you have become acquainted with a company. You may want to take a few moments to take note of the way others are dressed when you interview or tour a company. While everyone likes to exhibit their own sense of style and taste, standing out too much will have a negative impact on how you are viewed by co-workers and superiors.
