Interview with Bronwynne
We asked Bronwynne a few questions about her work and life because she's interesting and because we're curious.
Which resources on Digital.com do you find the most helpful?
Digital's library of hosting reviews is among the best on the internet. Whenever I've needed to choose a hosting company, Digital was my first choice. And I'm not just saying this because I worked on some of those reviews, seriously! The work is comprehensive, objective, and most of the time, it even includes some of the writer’s or editor's own experiences with the company.
What advice would you give to would-be freelancers?
No matter how busy you get, don't neglect things like improving your skills and promoting your services. Try to set up a daily or weekly slot for professional development and marketing. And put the same effort into these personal projects that you put into your client work.
One piece of advice for small business owners and entrepreneurs?
When you're running your business, you do a little bit of everything. That's to be expected. But, not everything on your to-do list is equally as important.
One of my favorite books is The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results.
I'd encourage any business owner to do a study of their goals and priorities. Chances are you'll easily find tasks you can delegate or drop. Next, place your focus on the activities that will set you on the path to achieving success in business, and life.
How do you maintain a positive work-life balance?
I don’t! This is a work in progress. Right now, I'm trying to focus on work when I'm at work and family when I'm with family. Most of the problems come from trying to divide my attention. My mission is to be fully present at all times.
