Creating a healthy work-life balance is essential to your life as a creator. Our desire to succeed, grow and push forward can often make us forget about our own well-being and, as is often the case, work and stress can take precedent over our day to day lives. Sometimes seemingly out of the blue. 

 

As an entrepreneur, you are often adopting more work at the expense of your personal time, and so creating a harmonious balance between your work and the rest of your life is critical to improving our overall health and creative output. 

 

Entrepreneurship at its heart is an incredibly rewarding experience, but it does mean taking on my responsibilities. The comforting thing to learn is that there isn’t a particularly high amount of evidence to suggest that working more necessarily means getting more done so finding a balance and maximizing your creative hours in the day can reap great rewards. 

 

How do you manage your work-life balance? 

 

What tricks or exercises do you use  to help increase your creative output and minimize the impacts of stress?

Great idea @amandajac !

 

Affiliate Marketing is a great tool you can use to help reward customers for speaking highly about your brand. It's also one of the best ways to maximize your marketing dollars, as it ensures that at least some portion of your marketing spend is actually being turned into real, tangible sales. 

 

One of the best ways to get started is to simply keep your customers in the loop that you have a rewards program set up for this very thing. If you haven't already, I would strongly recommend either editing your notification templates in your Shopify account or looking toward these apps that are geared toward Affiliate Marketing from the Shopify App Store: 

 

Once you've set up your program, you can begin to determine how much you intend on compensating your Affiliate Marketers! Let me know below if you have any other questions or concerns about moving forward with something like this!
