How hard is it to balance work and personal life and feel like you’re NOT burning out? As a small business owner or leader of a team, it can be challenging to keep up with everything, follow up, close the loops in your brain … and take good care of yourself. The constant demands of running a business can leave little time for family, friends, fun and self-care. This is where work-life balance coaching can help you re-balance and make it more sustainable.

What is work-life balance coaching?

Work-life balance coaching helps small business owners and leaders achieve a healthier balance between their professional and personal lives. It includes identifying values, re-setting priorities and customising a way of working that is sustainable for you (not other generic digital business owners). For small business owners, work-life balance coaching is especially beneficial if you are still in that scaling phase, because you’re tied to many aspects of the business outcomes and team growth is ongoing.

3 Powerful benefits of work-life balance coaching

One of the main benefits of work-life balance coaching is aligning your values and priorities with how you actually spend time. As a small business owner, it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks of running a business and lose sight of what’s truly important. This usually looks like frantic busy days putting out fires, but not actually moving the needle on your goals. Burnout looms large!
Work-life balance coaching can help small business owners re-focus back to their core values and develop a sustainable plan to align their actions and time spent (hello self-care!) with those values. This can lead to a greater sense of happiness and fulfillment both in and outside of work. In addition, this clarity around values and priorities allows you to confidently set your business up with firm boundaries so that it is not reliant on you doing all of the work, making it stronger AND more sustainable.
Another benefit of work-life balance coaching is tools and solutions for managing your time effectively. Small business owners often wear many hats and juggle multiple responsibilities – and when this continues without actually making an impact, it can lead to feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
This is crucial if you want to move the needle on what’s important to you, without feeling like you’re on the road to burn out. Reducing the mental load, setting boundaries and having a greater sense of control over your schedule provides a structure for spending your time effectively, with less guilt.
Finally, work-life balance coaching helps to develop supportive systems and routines designed around you and your lifestyle. It’s important to have routines and processes in place that allow small business owners and leaders to manage their personal and professional responsibilities effectively.
Work-life balance coaching encourages individuals to identify their priorities and develop strategies to achieve them. Once the priorities are established, the routines and processes create a road map for maintaining a better work-life balance.
It’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind of running a business and neglect other areas of life, such as family, friends and hobbies. There’s even less time for rest and self care. Work-life balance coaching helps to try out new ways of working with supportive boundaries, and to make time for the things that matter most.

How does work life balance coaching work?

Work-life balance coaching packages are 3 or 6 months, with sessions fortnightly or monthly. The packages follow this process:


Determine what’s not working for you and what is working well. We also go deep into what makes you ✅ , your values and priorities.



Get clarity on what we are working towards, how it will feel, what it looks like from a day to day perspective, and what you will gain



We work together to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be and make a plan for navigating these changes. The strategies may incorporate time management, mind, boundaries and thought patterns, reducing the mental load, systems, routines, processes, planning and building self belief



We get some quick wins and build confidence by setting up systems for managing time, information, your self care, your business processers or your family management.



We celebrate what’s working and check in on the shifts and changes, as well as the resistance, so that we can continue with momentum



There’s accountability all the way along, so that if you have any wobbly moments, you know you always have support.



We reinforce the work so that you can maintain this progress without being on the road to burn out again.

No one can do it all, even though we often try. Work-life balance coaching can be a valuable tool for small business owners to provide the accountability of shifting and moving through change. It’s about leaving behind the unhelpful habits and testing out new ones that are designed by you and for you. If you’re a small business owner struggling to balance work and personal life, consider investing in work-life balance coaching. Your wellbeing and your business will thank you.
