Balance business and family responsibilities

Running your own business can be extremely demanding. It is even more challenging when you have family responsibilities to meet, such as bringing up children, caring for a child with disabilities or looking after elderly parents or relatives.

There are many steps you can take to achieve a more favourable work-life balance. These include organising your time more effectively, getting help from others and creating greater work flexibility for yourself and others.
