Work-Life Balance Revisited: You Can Enjoy It All

Interview with Susan Giurleo 

For the newly self-employed, work-life balance can be hard to achieve.  Our business requires so much time and we have so much to learn that it can be hard to carve out time to spend with our loved ones or take time to relax. While it is convenient to be able to work any time, anywhere, we need to learn to manage our days so that we are optimally productive when we work and focused on our joy when we choose to relax.


Kelly Galea, host of the “From Corporate to Creative” radio show interviews Dr. Susan Giurleo. We discuss how to mindfully plan your work-life integration so that you have long stretches to do the work you must do and have time to relax, spend with your family and enjoy all aspects of your life.

We also discuss the Lifestyle Business Planning Concept, the three time buckets you must have each day and the mind science behind optimal focus and productivity so work is productive and your time off  is truly refreshing.
