More often than not, entrepreneurs keep glued to their mobile phones checking E-mails and messages even after being surrounded by their family members. Their near and dear ones get annoyed with this peculiar habit but unintentionally the entrepreneurs neglect the graveness of this gaffe. They fail to discern the fact that the seeds of a broken relationship are sowed by the absence of balanced work and life commitments. They become so much preoccupied with their work commitments that they lose sight of their priorities at home. People are hoped to be more devoted towards their kith and kin while being in the surroundings of their near and dear ones. But they are not able to strike a chord between their priorities and obligations. The hectic lifestyle of entrepreneurs has even led to a rise in various ailments like Hypertension, high Blood Pressure, Depression and Irritation just to name a few.
