What Entrepreneurs Do When Not At Work
Welcome to the, not at work section. These are things to do not at work. Obviously, you don't worry about decorating your house or your sick kids at work... yet we all do. Family and life are the reason we push so hard while we are at work.

I have had to learn to appreciate my time "not at work" or else I find myself "burning out" and not even knowing it. My personal opinion is that you are not built to go 8-5 at work. I do better with immersion than I do with an off on an everyday schedule. I am also smart enough to know we are all built differently.
This is a cool section we thought appropriate as we had a lot of great posts that could contribute to some cool ideas here. Enjoy and comment on your favorite post in this section!
