Work Life Balance: Which should you put first – Career or Relationship?

By Bruce Muzik in Relationship Advice.

Have you ever wondered how to balance your work life with your spouse and your kids?

I have too.

There’s a good reason why entrepreneurs sometimes refer to their businesses as their mistress – both marriage and career require nurturing, time and your loving attention.

Perhaps your spouse complains that you don’t spend enough time with them at home. If you’re like many career-oriented people, you may be concerned that if you spend more time at home, your career or business will suffer.

Yet, if you spend too much time at work, your wife and kids may miss you and protest your absence. If you spend too much time at home, your career may suffer.

Caught between a rock and a hard place, right?


Actually, the answer is… none of them.
