Important Lessons for Your First Year of Business | Chalene Johnson Interviews Brock Johnson

Making Sacrifices in Your Business to Live a Balanced Life

Are you unable to dedicate 100% of your attention to your business growth? How do you keep your schedule accountable to your priorities? In this episode, I interview my son Brock, a full-time college athlete committed to building his own business while keeping his personal life in balance. He shares how he got through his first year of building a business on his own, as well as the sacrifices he had to make to maintain a balanced life.

Have you been overwhelmed with trying to balance out your work life and personal life? If so, this episode is for you. If you’re constantly questioning or feeling uneasy about the way you dedicate your time to specific areas of your life (whether that be your business or job, your social life, your alone time, your health, etc.), then it might be time for you to make some sacrifices or seek help. A balanced life can be achieved by even the busiest of people, but oftentimes… sacrifices are to be made.

I hope you enjoyed this episode of me interrogating my son as much as he did (wink wink). But seriously, my son has taught me so much and has inspired me to find a better balance between my own work and personal life. Once I found that balanced life, both the work and personal aspects flourished. I can proudly say that you’ll learn so much from Brock, and urge you to not only listen in but also follow his journey!
