Work Life Balance as a Studio Owner: Can It Be Done?

work life balance

Being a studio owner and achieving a work life balance can seem flat-out impossible!  But what if we are just thinking of the word “balance” in the wrong way?

I’ve come to the conclusion that we have to change our definition of the word.  Instead of “balance” meaning equal attention at all times, I propose that we adopt the mentality that “balance” means the right amount of attention at any given time.  In other words, we could stop striving for the seesaw of our lives to be level.  We could strive instead to make sure it functions well; that each side can go up and down as needed.  That, to me, is more like a balance that reflects real life!

For example, there will be times where you simply need to be all-in with your family.  Maybe you have a vacation planned, a new baby, or an emergency. And there will be times that you’re all-in with the studio because it’s peak registration or recital week or an employee quits.  Just because you are all-in with one area of your life doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong! There will always be some give-and-take, and the balance may shift accordingly.

So what can you do to achieve just the right (proportionate!) balance in YOUR life day-to-day?  Keep reading to learn more about my 4 Tips to Achieve Your Best Work Life Balance.
