Virtually every small business person we know is working hard. Sometimes working into the night, taking on as many customers as possible, keeping apace with social media and finding the best marketing mix for getting and keeping customers. Sometimes it feels like going in ten directions at once, juggling possibilities that aren’t yet realities, while tucking family and personal needs into overly crowded corners of the week. These are times that test our stamina and our souls. Feeling relaxed with these pressures requires conscious effort and it’s critical for not becoming burned out.
