Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 2, 2008
Small business owners all seem to have one thing in common: stress! Life for a business owner includes having to wear every hat from CEO to janitor - often in the same day. This, in addition to dealing with difficult clients, absent employees, and roller coaster cash flow results in bad health, no personal life, and eventually, personal burnout and possibly the end of the business itself.
Serial entrepreneur/author Victoria Munro knows the feeling well. Munro's new book, The Small Biz Balancing Act: Take Charge of Your Time, Your Business and Your Life is a practical guide for busy entrepreneurs on how to maximize time spent in profitable activities and how to delegate or ditch the low-payoff ones. In addition, Munro offers tips on how to de-stress and play more. "I've been as guilty as any other entrepreneur in working so hard in my businesses at the expense of not taking care of myself," says Munro. "The Small Biz Balancing Act details how to create a plan to balance your life to include what's most important to you: A thriving business and time for the most important people in your life, including you!"
Victoria Munro started her first business - a flower shop - at the tender age of 16 in her native England and has since created and run eight other businesses. She and her husband, Dave Block, are the founders of Make-It-Fly©, a small business advisory company that supports small business owners through participating in advisory boards. She brings a lifetime of entrepreneurial experience to the table and is committed to empowering small business owners to achieve their dreams and goals.
"I use a gyroscope as the metaphor for the balancing act that that's the life of a small business owner. When the gyroscope is spinning, it tends to remain level even when the surface it's spinning on is tilted. It's dynamic and moving, yet it keeps its balance. We need to be like a gyroscope, able to stay level despite all that's going on around us."
