This being Thanksgiving week, we are reminded that as small business owners, we especially have much to be thankful for.
Our families: Of course at the Thanksgiving table when everyone shares what they are thankful for, usually the first and main thing is the love of family. I think this is even truer for the small business owner.
I own a software development company. While I wouldn’t consider myself disorganized,
at the end of most days I can’t help feeling I haven’t accomplished what I set out to do that day.

Q: My business travel is really upsetting both my work and home life. Twice a month I fly from the west coast to the east for business. I have no choice. But I can never sleep on the planes, I am too wired to sleep when I arrive and I am usually kinda useless the next day. Any suggestions?

We often hear about how stressful today’s world is compared with days gone by. Is this really the case, or does it just seem that way?
Rieva Lesonsky, CEO of GrowBiz Media, offers tips for obtaining a work-life balance that works for you.
It’s the start of a new year, the time to make all those promises to yourself. One resolution that’s worth striving for, even though you may never fully achieve it, is working towards a work-life balance that makes sense for you, your business and your family.
I say one that works for you because only you know what is right for your situation and what is actually doable. Here are some things to keep in mind while working towards balance:
Presented by FreeEnterprise.com, Wendy Kaufman talks about finding a balance between work and life before you lose control of both.
Never have I realized how important life and work balance is than this month. After my father passed, I mourned a father and a best friend. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is one of the most challenging things to overcome. However, life does not wait for you to be ready, and it can throw everything on your plate—even when your plate already seems full.
Presented by FreeEnterprise.com, Wendy Kaufman looks at the valuable role of motivation in people's work and personal life.
I recently asked Jane, a woman who attends my classes, how her work and life are going. She responded that everything is fine; she has no problems and doesn’t know what she wants to do tomorrow. Jane told me that she just lives her life on a day by day basis.
While this may seem acceptable to some, I was extremely alarmed by her response. Jane's reaction to the simplest of questions made me realize the importance of motivation.
Originally I wanted to start a T-Shirt printing business, but was also interested in using my Psychotherapy skills. Using the skills that my SCORE counselor gave me, I was able to use both my art and my Psychotherapy training to establish my Point of Change Counseling company. I have been in this new direction for my career and am loving it.

What's Great About My Mentor?
My Mentor was great. He was kind, helped me with my business plan and record keeping and led me to make good decisions. While I did not stay with the business idea I had originally, the transition to my current Private Practice is both enjoyable and rewarding.
How SCORE Helped
About five years ago, I made an appointment and met with one of your associates. He was extremely helpful in explaining how to formulate a business plan. I felt very comfortable asking questions, and my questions were always answered helpfully and with respect. I am now the sole proprieter of a psychotherapy private practice here in Gainesville. I owe a thank you to SCORE for getting me pointed in the right direction. I would highly reccommend SCORE's services!
