9 Work-Life Balance Strategies for Entrepreneurs


One of the leading reasons businesses are started is for the freedom it affords.  As the owner, you are in control and call the shots.  You can do the kind of work you enjoy and have the flexibility to work when and how you want.

But this is a myth.  Soon you find that freedom is elusive and the only flexibility you really have is whether to work a 60 or 80 hour week.

It doesn’t have to be that way.  In this webinar, you will learn 9 strategies specifically designed for business owners to achieve work-life balance and spend more time doing things you enjoy, while still increasing your profits.


This webinar is presented by Buffie Blesi, President of KnowlegeSphere, Inc.  Buffie is the Founder of We Spark Growth and WorkAround Coworking as well as an Independent Franchisee for AdviCoach Business Coaching. She has a strong passion for her clients and their success and has an extra special desire to help more women business owners achieve extraordinary results. As a business owner herself, she understands the traps and unique challenges all business owners face and has a coach of her own to keep her on track.  She is also an avid volunteer and champion of small business and is the President Elect of the National Association of Women Business Owners and on the Small Business Committee for the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce.  She is also a member of MetroIBA.
