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 going on in your day? Do you spend significant time feeling stressed, tired, and dissatisfied? Take heart. The problem with work-life balance isn't that you can't achieve it. It's that nobody can.

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 tips from those who have already walked their journey to bliss. Best of all, the interactive exercises and tools will get you started on your journey, too.

Ready to feel happy? Peaceful? Satisfied with your life? Your journey to real work-life bliss is about to begin.
