Not because I didn’t like what I was doing, but because I didn’t have any systems in place to ensure that I can spend enough time with my work, my blog, my family and my friends. I soon realised that if I continue with willy-nilly trying to figure out how to fit my blog in to my 9-5, it will do more harm than good. And that is why I created a few systems to ensure that I can continue to grow my blog, be successful and happy at work, and spend enough time with my friends and family. So, how do I do it? Below…
