Set a schedule. Family first, then business. Time is so short and fleeing. I would set your real estate schedule around family time. I always get up earlier than everyone else to go over my email and decipher what I needed to do for the day. Then I did most of the phone calls and appointments when the kids were in school.

Great question. I think it's a pursuit. For me, there are a few things that helped me along the way:

(1) Buckets

(2) Time blocking

(3) Charting progress/ success

I plan to blog about this!

Setting boundaries. They can be flexible, but you have to make time for other important things in life... family, food, paying bills, and having some recharge time.
