There are many people out there who espouse the benefits of building what is called a lifestyle business. It’s a great concept – when it works. But today’s guest, Joshua Dorkin tells the story of how he build an amazingly successful online business that by all rights should have been supporting his lifestyle, but instead left him no room for any kind of life at all.

The pain of overwork is well known, but it’s only when you feel it firsthand that you realize that there’s great wisdom in setting boundaries and learning to delegate.
