Sometimes people take workaholic as positive as you get to do lot of work, but being a hard worker is not the same like being a workaholic. The time when you feel your work/personal life is out of balance and is leaning far to heavy towards work? These are the kind of people who fall under the category of workaholics. These people are obsessed of overworking, without their knowledge they work more than required. That’s not what is required in a work, in early stages of business sometimes you do have to work late nights, sometimes you have to set aside your family apart for a short duration to get things going.
