I hired a book keeper to run all my personal bills and finances. This completely keeps the pressure off me of running my monthly finances. A huge stress reliever. I also hired a yard service and a maid that comes every two weeks.

These three things give me time to de-stress and enjoy my family. All of these I have found to be quit valuable in making the most of my time and let’s me focus on my business.
