Dear Farillio member,

On 23rd April 2021, you asked our fabulous expert Lisa Laing on the Go Far Fast Show:

“Do you think it's ever possible to find the balance between work and having a life away from it? I don't know anyone right now who seems to be successful and has time for friends, hobbies or other stuff.”

And Lisa said:

Be mighty always, Farillio


“I absolutely think it's possible. I think it's easy to fall back into the pattern of being addicted to business, but it is possible with clear strategies. I think we live in the most incredible time, with our ability to use software to automate our businesses. We have access to low cost and cheap software that can absolutely change how we run our businesses.

We also have a global workforce that fits into any budget or any expertise category and we can find people who can help us inside of our businesses. I think there's never been a better time to be growing a brand than literally right now. Incorporating those kinds of activities will allow us, as business owners, to get off the mouse wheel and focus on building the business instead of running the business. That’s where we have the time to have lunch with friends, be there for our kids and be present. It absolutely can be done, but it does take a clear strategy and a lot of knowledge to help you to find those unique set of activities inside of your business that will allow you to be a little freer, and dedication to the cause.”

Ask your question:

If you have any questions that you'd like us to ask in a future Go Far Fast Show, send us a DM on Twitter or on LinkedIn. We'd love to hear from you!

While we can connect you with some very fine advisers in the UK, and we collaborate with them to provide you with great materials, Farillio itself is not a law firm. We do not directly provide legal advice ourselves. All resources are available for you to use (according to our terms and conditions), but those resources are not legal advice to you and neither are they a substitute for you taking legal advice from a lawyer.
