Mixing business with pleasure

It’s okay to mix business with pleasure. When you’re self employed, when you’re an entrepreneur, and/or when you work online it’s not only fun to, it’s crucial. Your business is yours. It is you. Therefore, it’s as if every part of your business makes up you and every part of you makes up your business. That is, unless you aren’t passionate about what you’re doing. So go ahead and mix the professional with the personable.

For instance, if you’re on a business trip, be sure to throw in some social activities. If you’re on a fun getaway, make sure to connect with a business contact and/or schedule a business meeting or interview. That’s the beauty of today’s way of conducting business, particularly when working online.

As you’re out and about enjoying the new area during your vacation, be looking for things and people who can further your business ventures. While you’re at a new city attending a conference, take time to do some sight seeing to learn about the local area. Network and connect with individuals and businesses and drop of your business cards. Networking happens online but don’t forget about the face-to-face networking while you travel. Hardly anything is more successful than a personal greeting and a handshake.

Always growing the business and looking for ways to improve it should be your goal. Yet don’t get so off track that you take no time off work and are constantly working 24/7. On the other hand, don’t become so complacent and undisciplined that you aren’t focusing on your business but putting crucial things to the side. Remain professional and personable and have a good grasp on your career and your personal life.

Finding that perfect balance is key and it’s easier said than done. It will take some trial and error as well as lots and lots of planning. Yet is is highly possible. Enjoy your life and enjoy your work. Always work toward that perfect balance in mixing business with pleasure.
