Finding Balance While Working from Home
Working from home has its own set of challenges. Working from home in the middle of a pandemic quarantine, certainly makes things more interesting. Couple all of that with figuring out how to find “balance” AND a healthy separation between work and life – and you’re met with a perfect storm.

How do you avoid it? How do you effectively work from home AND ALSO find a healthy “balance” between work and everything else? First, we’ll demystify “work-life” balance and then apply it with strategies for working from home – from someone who’s worked from home for 13 years and has failed and succeeded at both throughout her career. You’ll walk away with lots of ideas and some strategies you can apply to your own work-from-home environment.
