How 'Having It All' is a Myth for Entrepreneurs
January 22, 2016
Hosted by Marcia Zidle
Most people are familiar with the phrase, “You can have it all.” Some believe this is an accurate possibility; however, having it all isn’t always a possibility for entrepreneurs. You can be a mother/father, wife/husband and business owner, but you can’t do it all by yourself. Apart of growing your business is learning how to delegate responsibilities to others, along with surrounding yourself with trustworthy people. Entrepreneurs need to learn how to compartmentalize their time, while knowing that running your own business is not a nine to five job. Even though it is rewarding to help people and be your own boss, becoming an entrepreneur is not meant for everyone. Running a business requires a lot of time, energy and money as well as juggling multiple roles within a company. Deborah Gregory, former IRS attorney and co-founder of Gregory Law Group, will share with us how she balances her role as a co-founder of a tax law firm, along with her role as a wife and mother to two boys.
