This is a podcast episode titled, **Weekend Bonus 8** Question and Answer with your host, John Lee Dumas. The summary for this episode is: <p>Alright, Fire Nation. We’re just going to get back into the Question and Answer swing of things with Kyla Kirkpatrick, the “Champagne Dame” from www.thechampagnedame.com. “Hey, John. My question is I’m a very driven person and I’m working on a new business which is really taking off. With any new business, there is so much to do. Particularly, not having a team to assist. But it is all blue sky with many avenues to explore. I am finding it incredibly hard to mentally switch off from thinking about my business and I find it hard to remove myself from my desk at the end of the day. Some days, I sit there till midnight and I get up at 5:00 a.m. to keep going. I hate taking a weekend off because it breaks my momentum. And because I’m doing a job that I love, it’s even harder. A good problem to have, I suppose, but it’s wearing me out and I can see my family and friends are growing tired of my constant focus on work even though they are happy for me. So how do you switch off even when you are on a roll to take personal time and family time that does not have any focus or element of work? Many thanks, Kyla.”</p>
