“Everyone should pull their finger out and start a business and to believe in themselves. There is nothing else to it. Anyone can make a £100m. But most people don’t go out and try. They just stand in the pub and complain.” – Duncan Bannatyne, Scottish entrepreneur and author
A day in the life of a full-time work-from-home professional is packed full of deadlines, phone calls and emails, not to mention the household chores, attending to the children and keeping everything in check to ensure the day ends with all items ticked off the to-do list. Sadly, amongst the madness, the one thing you end up sacrificing is your much-needed exercise.
So how can you prioritise your exercise quota and make it a part of your daily routine and not a luxury activity?
For many working parents, the option to work from home can be a boon – achieving a proper work-life balance and being able to spend maximum time with their children outside of work commitments. As discussed in some of our earlier blogs, work at home professionals need to have childcare arrangements in place if they want to focus on their work, as juggling work and taking care of your child can prove difficult at the best of times.
After months of deliberation, you have finally decided to give up the tedious 9-5 routine and start your home based business, which will not only allow you to work from home, but also enhance your work-life balance. Sounds promising, doesn’t it?
They say age is just a number. From joining local communities to working from home, from volunteering to setting up home-based small businesses, adults over the age of 60, in the UK, have displayed a considerable rise in entrepreneurial ventures.
