Being an entrepreneur means you are constantly staring failure in the face. The likelihood your small business will succeed is slim. According to a 2013 article on Forbes.com, eight out of ten businesses fail.

Dealing with this risk can mean long days (and nights) working. You may not get enough sleep or exercise. Your diet probably sucks. You might become isolated and alone. You’re possibly dealing with a lot of anxiety.

Entrepreneurs have to take a timeout and examine what’s going on in their lives. It’s important to find some way to balance — at least a little — your business with the rest of your life.
