Most of us spend a lot of time at work, hoping this will bring more achievement and success.

This goal of progressing in our careers creates a blur between our work and personal life. And this may lead to damaging results – exhaustion, relationship stress, and mental illness.

Join me in this episode, as Carlos Hidalgo, the author of Driving Demand and The UnAmerican Dream, talk about how you can create work and life boundaries so that you can focus on what truly matters.

How do you establish boundaries between your work and personal life? Is it possible to achieve a work-life balance?

In this conversation, he shares the costs that many pay in order to keep pace with modern business pressure. He talks about what work-life balance means, being a proactive employer, and how his quest for success impacted his relationship with his wife and family. He also shares a simple guide on how he overcomes various circumstances to find happiness and fulfillment both personally and professionally!
