Most successful businessmen have always found out that one must overshadow the other. It's either you're working so much that your personal life suffers or vice versa.

From most cases, we see very successful men who favor their work more than their personal life. The question now is - Is it possible that there's a real balance in ones work and life, and still maintain high level success at the same time? From history, we've found out that during the beginning phases of a business, it's almost possible not too work so much that your personal life suffers.

As a result, you may have to sacrifice family time and your personal life at the starting point. But as time goes by, and you're able to get the business grounded, you may be able to free up some more time for yourself.
