How to Set Boundaries and Take Control of Your Time w/ Todd Ferris

Team Building Podcast

Having a work-life balance is vital for holistic success, but not enough of us know where to begin to achieve that balance. How can we build businesses that allow us to pursue other interests and spend more time with our families? Is it possible to set boundaries with both clients and team members and still be successful?

On this episode, co-host of The Boom Podcast and team leader at Ferris Property Group, Todd Ferris shares how to achieve a better work-life balance.

Takeaways + Tactics

  • When planning each day, start by scheduling the things we want to achieve. This makes it easier to accommodate every commitment we make, both work and family related.
  • Set boundaries with clients. Most people will be understanding and respect our communicated business hours. Let them know your availability upfront and be mindful of your delivering on your commitments.
  • Always try to create a great culture with both team members and clients. As business owners, we get to choose who we work with – so make sure your team respect yours and each other boundaries.

At the start of this episode, we discussed how taking time off work regularly helps us achieve a better balance, as well as energize us. We then spoke about the importance of confidence, and why we need to show our clients we aren’t worried about losing them if they don’t respect our time. We also learned:

  • How to hire recruits that work well with our existing company culture
  • When to start setting expectations with new recruits
  • Why having a set company culture is non-negotiable for success
