A Professional Support Circle Can Change Your Life!

By: Melissa714
Time has become our fiercest enemy - and the only way to "beat the clock" is to develop a strong support circle to help us maximize our time and balance our lives. It doesn't matter whether you are a businessman or a work-from-home mom trying to juggle the demands of career and family, there are NOT enough hours in the day to accomplish everything that must get done. Life and professional coaches, virtual assitants, trainers and organizers are among the fastest growing segments in entrepreneurial new business ventures in the past 5 years. Successful, ambitious, energetic professionals are realizing that by employing this type of "support circle" they actually have more time to enjoy life and make peace with the accelerating passage of time.

Can these practitioners help you find more time in the day to accomplish the tasks that ONLY you can do? The answer is YES! For those who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s, it was the professional child care provider and the daycare centers that were the "revolutionary" new concepts of their time. Growing up in the 1960s, my parents rarely traveled or socialized without us and never employed someone to care for us. Unless you were from a wealthy family, it was grandparents, aunts and uncles, or trusted neighbors that were called upon.

As our society moved to the two-family income, in-home child care and daycare centers became commonplace. Can any of us even imagine life with no daycare, after-school programs, au pairs, or nannies?

The same evolution of virtual assistants, life and professional coaches, home and office organizers and other emerging service providers is now more prevalent and finding their niche working with business professional that have simply "run out of time" and feeling the stress associated with their frustration.

These professional services are no longer seen as "fluff" or luxuries. Those who have embraced the concept of utilizing these services have taken a step back to evaluate how to manage and optimize their time. If at the end of the day they can feel good about the professional accomplishments while honoring the relationships that are fundamental in life, then whatever the costs of building this professional support circle is well worth the price.

Friends, clients and business and personal acquaintances appear more interested in their overall happiness than accumulating more money, larger homes, or staying on the fast-track in the corporate world. In many cases developing and nurturing a "support circle" allows them to achieve greater financial rewards than they ever dreamed possible without sacrificing a fulfilling family life.

When people can spend an extra few hours a week with their family rather than catching up on paperwork or reconciling their checkbook, or their life coach recommended finding a virtual assistant, organizer, or financial planner allowing them to focus on their professional passion, it is a testament to the reliance of their "support circle" that is contributing to their personal happiness.

In order to avoid feeling frustrated and out-of-time, or trying to play catch-up on both business and personal deadlines while neglecting time with family and friends, NOW is the time to invest in a professional support circle. That is time spent you will never regret!
