From acting as chauffeur, tutor, referee, activity planner, administrative assistant, laundry attendant and house manager to my family with hugs and kisses, fatigue and burnout are hard to avoid. Sleep deprivation is a problem, and finding personal time becomes extremely difficult, especially when expanding my company and working with more employees.
