How to have a balance between your business and your family life?

I spoke with the 7-figure sales expert Tiji Thomas in my podcast about how to improve your own sales skills and sell premium products. The cool thing about Tiji is that he is like me, also a father and I’m always interested in how to balance between family and business life. Here are his suggestions:

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.
  • There’s really no such thing as work-life balance! 

This is such an illusion of our world that there is a work-life balance! Focus on your work when you work and focus on family time when you’re outside with your family. It is important to be structured during the day. Tiji starts his day very early before everybody else is awake and works very structured throughout the day.

  • Use Google calendar for everything!

Tiji uses google calendar almost religiously and also puts family events into his calendar. We use calendars most often for business meetings but make sure that you land family events also in your calendar. If it is not in your calendar that it is just a dream and not a got that you’re going to achieve.

  • Block time for Revenue Producing Activity (RPA)

Block time for Revenue Producing Activity like creating and shooting videos, creating an email for an autoresponder. Things that really matter within your business and block time so that you get done these things!

📚 One book recommendation that Tiji gave me is “One Thing” by Gary Keller!
