Being an entrepreneur can be lonely as you are always in your own head and family time can be impactedasbusiness rarely stops. I findmyself dis - cussing business with my wife, my always patient listener, or my daughter, my sounding board for ideas. It can be difficult to slow down and be in the present, but it is important to set aside time to share with family and friends without thinking about business. I still struggle with this and there is truly always room for improvement. Ensuring you take time for the people who mean the most in your life is important. I know, for many entre- preneurs, working on our companies is one way we like to show our families how much we care for them. We are creating successful businesses for the security of our families and if we invest wisely, often we can leave something behind that can continue to provide for them when we leave this world. Of course, this is still not a substitute for quality time with family and friends! The date nights, game nights, camping, fishing trips, vaca - tions, and anytime you spend with your family
unplugged from work is critical to ensuring your family knows you care and are present.
