Do you wonder why you can’t seem to achieve the work/life balancing act? Do you find yourself struggling to stay on top of everything, feeling like you never catch up? Do you spend significant time feeling stressed, tired, and dissatisfied? The problem with work/life balance isn’t that you can’t achieve it. It’s that nobody can.

The good news is that finding real balance – and the bliss that comes with it – is absolutely possible. In fact, some have already figured it out. And they’re about to tell you how they did it.

Bogus Balance gets to the heart of why our understanding of work/life balance is a set-up for frustration. It then gets to the good stuff, providing hope from those who have walked their journey to bliss. Best of all, the interactive exercises will get you started on your journey, too.
