Boundaries: Why You Need Them in Your Business

When you’re starting and growing a business, boundaries can become fluid or nonexistent.* I was talking with a former entrepreneur who recently took a corporate job, and she commented that one of the things she likes is there is now an end to the day for her, as she is an employee and their bosses use a paystub software to manage employees so everything is easy for them.
