The Balance

Makelight's August focus
on Work/life balance

Let's spend some time thinking about balance this month

Life can be busy, and it's sometimes hard to fit everything in. Things can quickly go out of whack, and you easily find yourself working and living in an unsustainable way.

This month we'll be looking at the theme of balance, with guest contributions from writer and online teacher Gabrielle Treanor who'll be talking to us about her research and work into helping people live happier, less anxious lives.

The Makelight focus for August

Makelight.com is an online learning membership site for creators, makers and doers.

A community of entrepreneurs, Instagrammers and bloggers all learning how to grow communities, online audiences and businesses around what we're passionate about.

Each month we have a Makelight Focus, and in August it's all about helping you find balance in work and life.

With a guest appearance, videos, Q&As and articles on the subject, we'll be looking at balance, what it means and how we achieve it.

What we'll be covering

  • Living and working sustainably

  • Work and life in and where they blur

  • Dealing with anxiety

  • Looking into the modern Mindfulness movement


On top of these short, snackable videos and exercises, we'll have a set of resources, recommended apps and equipment recommendations, as well as a series of Live Q&As to answer all your questions related to the monthly focus.

This month-long series of lessons is hosted by Emily and Stef, co-founders of Makelight.

If we've not met yet then we're excited to host you this month!


Emily Quinton has won a blogging award, secured a book deal through her online writing, spoken at blogging conferences, been featured on lots of blogs and in many more magazines… and turned her blog into a business that convinced Stef to quit his thing to join her full time!

Emily is passionate about helping people who have an idea for a passion business to turn it into reality.



Stef Lewandowski is a designer and technologist and has helped Emily to build and design the Makelight.com you see around you today.

Stef teaches in an accessible way about how to use just enough technology, in a simple way, to achieve what you're aiming for. His "just get something working quickly, then iterate" approach is how we've built Makelight, and it's something he really hopes to inspire in others.

Join in this August

It's going to be a great month of learning and should really help to give your passion project a boost. It's our whole membership focus for this month, so we hope you'll sign up and join in! Don't miss out!
