When you start a venture, you have a lot of work to do. All that work takes a lot of time. An experienced entrepreneur used to joke that when you start your own business, you get to work half days and you can choose which 12 hours of the day that is. It’s a dry joke, but very true. Launching a venture is not a 9-5 job. Working those hours doesn’t leave much free time for family, friends, or anything else. That, among other factors such as business set backs, create enormous amounts of stress for an entrepreneur. #MichaelHalper, Founder and CEO of Launch Pad Solutions, LLC, has put together a list of ways for an entrepreneur to reduce stress. The list is, by no means, exhaustive. Nor does every suggestion apply to every entrepreneur. But, his suggestions are worth a read and may make your life a little easier while working on your start-up.
1. Simplify your lifestyle
3. Compartmentalize your life
4. Have a financial cushion
5. Keep things in perspective
