The Family—Business Balancing Act

Patrick Cummings

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”
—Albert Einstein

If you’re an entrepreneur with a family, the pull between professional prestige and a happy home life can be overwhelming. It’s a balancing act seemingly impossible to perfect, one forcing you to constantly reevaluate priorities. What is truly important? How do I create a happy, fulfilling life?

What is real success?

You can be a good family man and profitable businessman. You can live a life with no regrets, stress, or self-doubt—you just need to know how.
