    Creating a Work/Life Balance That Works

    in Entrepreneur

    Working from home is becoming increasingly popular. It makes life incredibly easier, but also brings about a new set of
     challenges. Work is easily accessible and for most entrepreneurs, who are also workaholics, it means spending even less time with family.

    Creating a work/life balance that really works can be tough, especially if you have kids. Summer is here, school's letting out and it's going to make that balance even harder to achieve and maintain.

    Join Adam and life/business coach, Elizabeth Olagunju and learn how you can create a work/life balance that works.

    "Work/Life Balance is a Myth" (Julie Fleming)

    in Women

    Have you ever felt the pain when your business role conflicts with your personal or family roles? Every business owner wears multiple hats: CEO, marketer, IT consultant, researcher, etc. It's tough enough to manage those roles alongside ordinary family roles, but when life throws you a curveball, the difficulties multiply. Maybe you're responsible for transporting a child to a prestigious and time-consuming new activity that could pave the way for a college scholarship, or maybe you're suddenly facing a family member's serious illness. Whatever the cause, your business can thrive only if you're able to manage your family responsibilities and have energy left over. Listen as Julie shares the perspectives and practical tips she's gained while running her consultancy and serving as caregiver for her father, who is now in the severe stage of Alzheimer's Disease.

    Before and after the show, please post your questions for Jory and Julie on Jory's Facebook Business Page.

    Julie A. Fleming, principal of Lex Innova Consulting, helps lawyers to create/implement innovative business development plans. She is the author of three books (The Reluctant Rainmaker: A Guide for Lawyers Who Hate Selling, Seven Foundations of Time Mastery for Attorneys, and Legal Rainmaking Mistakes: What You Think You Know About Business Development Can Kill Your Practice), as well as numerous articles on topics such as business development, practice management, work/life balance, and leadership development. Before launching her consulting business, Julie practiced law for over a decade in both large and small firms, focusing on patent litigation. Julie has appeared in diverse publications including The Practical Lawyer (ALI CLE), Trial magazine (American Association for Justice), The Bencher (American Inns of Court), ABA Now (American Bar Association), and The Glass Hammer.
