There is a huge amount of advice online for entrepreneurs, the vast majority of which focuses on their business. While this advice is undoubtedly important, especially for those seeking to grow their company to achieve optimal success, entrepreneurs are also people; a societal group with their own unique needs and requirements.
As a result, we thought it was worth highlighting three essentials for entrepreneurs such as yourself – none of which apply to your business, but to you as a person.
Dedicate Time to Personal Admin
Business admin will usually be prioritized by entrepreneurs, but personal admin is likely to fall by the wayside – often, it can simply feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day, and business admin takes precedence. Personal admin is nevertheless extremely important, and ensuring you have everything in order in this regard – all bills paid, a well-managed diary, all correspondence responded to – can simplify your life beyond measure. Try to set aside three hours every week to attend to your personal admin needs and ensure that everything is up to date, both for the practical benefits and for your peace of mind.
Running a business is stressful, especially in the early stages, and it is far from uncommon for entrepreneurs to struggle with poor sleep. This can either be due to stress impacting their ability to sleep, or simply not having enough time to sleep. However, sleep is critical for humans, and getting sufficient sleep as absolutely crucial to your well-being. If you’re struggling to sleep, consider speaking to a doctor for advice, and always try to place getting a good night’s rest near the top of your priority list.
Retirement planning is a tricky subject for entrepreneurs; economic experts often warn that entrepreneurs either aren’t saving enough, or aren’t – as over 30% of entrepreneurs have indicated when surveyed – saving at all. Rectifying this issue by browsing retirement options such as IRAs, which you can find out more about in the infographic below, and subsequently introducing a full financial retirement plan, is therefore strongly advised.
