Let’s face it, becoming self-employed represents freedom. Freedom to work in your own way, set your own schedule… and to spend every waking hour thinking and worrying about your business! We all have other commitments so having a clear boundary in place between your working life and the rest of your life is essential if you’re going to avoid a stress induced meltdown.
Setting boundaries doesn’t just help your personal life either. It can boost your business too. I often find that I’ll have a lightbulb moment when I’m loading the washing machine or going for a run when work is pretty much the last thing on my mind.
