Show Notes

Confession: I work a lot. I love what I do, so I tend to want to do it all the time. Which might be an admirable quality if only I didn’t have an entire spectrum of other responsibilities that are equal to and often MORE important than work.

How can a successful, work-from-home online entrepreneur create a business that supports the family rather than harming it? What boundaries can we put in place to make sure we dedicate the time and attention God wants us to spend on our families, friends, communities, and church? Is it possible to be a high-performing online business owner AND a fully present wife, mom, friend, and more?

Yes. In this episode of The Inspired Business Podcast, you’ll learn four safeties that have helped me prevent work from spilling over into other aspects of my life. These are necessary boundaries for running not just a business but an overall fulfilling life.


  • Our work is only one aspect of our lives; we honor God when we give our full attention to every role He asks us to fulfill
  • Recommended safeties you can put in place to ensure you don’t let work spill over into your other priorities:
    • Set a cut-off time
    • Ask your spouse to partner in holding you accountable
    • Schedule free days
    • Protect your focus; find what clears your head so you can prevent mental distractions and live in the moment
