Running a social enterprise takes a lot of courage, time and careful thought. How to juggle the many demands of being an entrepreneur along with our other commitments to partners, family, artistic endeavors, among other things? It can seem overwhelming at times.
Setting goals and measuring progress helps you stay aligned with your core values and priorities. In addition, research shows that getting enough sleep, taking frequent breaks, and making time to relax has proven benefits.
Join Rani Langer-Croager, founder of Uptima Business Bootcamp, for this interactive workshop to learn practical ways to stay sane and achieve balance so that you run your business and your business doesn't run you.
