When I’m not at work, I love going to the gym, taking long walks with my Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Cooper and Abigail, and traveling. I learned a long time ago that it’s important to play as hard as you work.
When I started my business in 1998, I worked all the time, night and day. There was so much to do to get my business up and running. In the process, however, I forgot to take care of myself and I got very sick. Now I know better.
Today, my motto is “Health is wealth.” If you don’t have your health, you can’t work. And if you can’t work, you can’t pay your bills. If you can’t pay your bills, you’ll go broke. Overtime, you’ll find yourself caught up in a downward spiral.
If you want a healthy mind, body and spirit, it’s important to cherish your leisure time.
Even the most successful people find the time to balance work with play. I hope you’ll enjoy a recent article I wrote for Entrepreneur.com titled, “8 Ways Leaders Spend Their Time After Hours.”
