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.

Presented by FreeEnterprise.com, Wendy Kaufman talks about finding a balance between work and life before you lose control of both.

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.

I have been in this new direction for my career and am loving it.
Thank you SCORE

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!

Portland, Oregon business owners Carol Ellis and Serge Ouattara discuss how they've made their venture, Tré Bone, prosper and expand despite ending their marriage. SCORE Portland helped the pair develop a solid business plan, replicate that model in a second location and obtain financing.
