In addition to time spent on my laptop and desktop, mobile apps, and Instagram, my facebook timeline, twitterfeeds and emails stream directly to my smartphone.

You’re a solo entrepreneur. Business is doing well, but you are burning the candle at both ends and your family is no longer pretending to expect you at mealtime.

I was told yesterday that I have “walking pneumonia.”
Not really a big deal, it’s pretty common and I don’t feel that sick. However, it’s my own fault that it got this far.
I let a bad cold linger for three weeks before finally breaking down and going to the doctor. Through all of the symptoms, coughing, chills/fever, sore throat, sleeplessness, lethargy…I soldiered on and told everyone that I was “riding it out.”
