And from this group, 64% have interacted with advertising such as visiting the website of a featured product or clicking on an ad. And when it comes to

Blurred Lines approach to balancing work and personal life

Almost exactly one year ago, Harvard Business Review published an article written in support of a more “blurred lines” approach to balancing work and personal life. The theory is that if you try to keep those boundary lines rigid, you feel a performance-compromising amount of stress when you’re at work, and a thought about home or the weekend pops into your brain.

The article reports that study participants who allowed their personal life to seep into their work day, or who allowed themselves a few moments of work during times with friends or family, were less stressed and performed better overall. With small business owners who are working to
