We had the good fortune of connecting with Jonathan Dockery and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jonathan, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
Making sure to balance the obsessive mind of a business owner is so important. The challenging factor with The City Menus is that being a news website it’s constantly on my mind and hard to shut off. Thankfully through automation, phone calls are auto forwarded during high productivity times during the day to an answering service. Once at a place to answer the calls and respond, it can be done with clarity and thoughtfulness. A team to delegate tasks to helps declutter things that are lower priorties. As a business grows the balance gets better with the right mental awareness, seeking a business advisor or therapist is strongly recommended.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am most proud of our business direction especially during this challenging time, We are a network of support and hope for the small business community of West Georgia. While many other publications are pressuring small businesses to buy advertisements, we are offering many compassionate incentives for those small businesses that partner with us. Sometimes at a much lower cost than what we would usually offer. Without the help of people within my close circle I would not have gotten past the challenges. I want people to know our brand embraces the small business, we want the love to show through our content on the digital platform.
