I've grappled with this issue a great deal. I do what I love and it's not something that I can turn off. It's what I am. I've found that as a consultant out on my own, I've finally gotten to the place where my family and my work can live in relative harmony (notice I didn't say "balance" - I HATE that word - it's unrealistic - it's more like blending).

What I feel I'm giving my family - especially my children - is the view that you can work hard, and frequently, and still have a life and fun. My kids are often home when I'm working. They've had to learn some boundaries, but I've also been here for them more often than ever before.

Sometimes I even talk through work issues with them and see what they think. As teenagers, their insights are fascinating (getting ready for the next generation!) and I've helped them to see things that aren't always what they appear to be!
