Entrepreneurs, I once read live the life that nobody can in order to have the life that everyone wants (paraphrased from somewhere).
When I started working for myself, I stuck to “regular” work hours. Weekends? Evenings? Nope…that’s ME time. I soon realized I wasn’t getting anywhere because I needed to match other people’s schedules (within reason) instead of the other way around. That said, I wasn’t going to risk an ulcer before turning 30…but time management is a great skill to have, and in my opinion an easy one to learn (although difficult to master).
As mentioned a few times in this thread, there will be haters. Not just from within your scope, but people you know outside of your professional life who say “one more drink,” or “A meeting on a Friday evening?!? Why on Earth?” Hopefully you don’t lose those people. I didn’t. They unknowingly pushed me to try even harder.
