Startup Canada Podcast: Mike Iwasiow on the 35 hour work week

Startup Canada Podcast

Canadian entrepreneur, consultant, and software developer Mike Iwasiow knows the secret to creating a sustainable work-life balance.

“Don’t focus so much on success, or the traditional definition of that… focus on happiness and fulfillment of your whole day. Try to maximize your day, and everything else will fall out from that.”

Mike is the founder and CEO of BookedIN, an online appointment scheduling and payment software for small businesses. As a family man and a successful entrepreneur, Mike has powerful thoughts on emails, unplugging, and routine.

This week’s #StartupPodcast hones in on what work-life balance means for startup entrepreneurs like Mike. Learn how he has more responsibilities than ever, but only works for 35 hours a week.
