What Dr. Parry Can Say in an Interview on Work/Life Balance:

COVID has turned work/life balance on its head. Financial advisors have struggled with work/life balance before these challenging times—but now with working from home, hybrid work schedules, and working parents at home with kids learning online, it has been wildly exacerbated!

5 Tips to Establishing a Healthier Work/Life Balance

 1.  Stress/Emotional Management. Understanding the psychological components of what we can/cannot control and how to deal with these factors will help professionals to be able to separate work from home even if those boundaries are blurred with COVID.

2.  Creating Physical Boundaries. Have a home office/place that is separate from other home responsibilities. 

3.  Dressing the Part. Have sound protocols, wardrobe that helps you look and play the part.

4.  Family Support. Inform family of your work/home boundaries and ask them to support and help you to achieve these goals. Working at home with 8 people can be daunting but their support is crucial.

5.  Set Work Hours. Regardless of where you are working from (home, work, outside at a park bench) set boundaries for yourself and work those hours. Creating these boundaries will help you to stay productive.

In Lockdown? How to Write That Book You Always Thought About

There’s Never Been an Easier Time to Become an Author… and this just might give people the excuse they need to focus on getting that book done (that they always had on the bucket list.)

Here’s what Trevor Crane, Epic Author Publishing, can say on this topic:

  • Gone are the days you need “permission” from a group of people you’ve never met (aka: a traditional publisher) to tell your book is worthy.
  • While there are more authors than ever before, there are more publishers than ever before. . .
  • There are more options for independently publishing a book than ever before.
  • Good news! There are more opportunities to monetize your book. This is what I show people how to do.
  • Today, technology makes it easy for anyone to write and publish a book.
    You can dictate your whole book.  You can also get someone, inexpensively, to help edit.
  • You’re not alone. The best (and smartest) authors on the planet use a TEAM of people to help them write and publish their books.
  • Virtually EVERY successful author you’ve ever heard of, DID NOT write their own book. (At least not alone.)
  • Behind EVERY successful book you’ve ever heard of, a TEAM of people who helped bring it to life.

Get that bucket list item done.  Trevor can motivate your audience to get this life dream goal done.
