Work/life balance is a popular topic among entrepreneurs and employees alike. Basically, it’s about making sure your work doesn’t completely overtake your life and prevent you from pursuing your passions. 

Some people allow their entire lives to revolve around amassing money that has no specific goal or purpose. Or they work extremely long hours to provide for a family they rarely see because of those long hours. They strive to earn the income that will allow them to live the life they want, although they may not know what that even means.
