How You’ve Been Lied To About Work-Life Balance

Hey Rainmaker fam, it’s Stephen and Chelsey here, diving into something we get asked a ton: How do you balance it all as parents running a business? Well, we’re about to drop a truth bomb—you’ve been lied to about work-life balance, and we’re here to set the record straight.

In this episode, sparked by our amazing 11th-anniversary dinner conversation, we’re peeling back the layers on what balance truly means to us. It’s not about dividing your time equally between work and family but understanding the weight each holds in your life. We’ve realized that our lives are made up of seasons, each demanding different levels of attention and energy from us.

Reflecting on our journey, we noticed that our growth, both personally and together, has been all about embracing these seasons. Whether we were navigating the early days of our marriage, parenting, or building our business, we learned that balance isn’t a one-size-fits-all formula. It’s about prioritizing what matters most, communicating openly, and being intentional with our time and energy.

So, if you’re wrestling with the concept of work-life balance, remember, it’s not about achieving perfection but about navigating life’s seasons with purpose and grace. Let’s dive into this conversation, rethink balance, and find ways to align our time and energy with what truly matters.
