Typical Work From Home Schedule:
“During the week I typically wake up around 6 AM with the help of my two baby girls. The morning is our time together without phones or distractions, them only. I dress them for the day, have breakfast with them and drive them to school. One I return home, I make a necessary cup of coffee and start work; calls, emails, meetings, etc. It is usually non-stop until I am able to take a break for lunch where I make sure to go outside and get fresh air. Then back at it with work calls, emails, and meetings. I end my day at 5:30 PM and it's all about my family again. At 7 PM after putting my babies to bed, it's time for a glass of wine and dinner with my husband. Exhausted from the day I head to bed at 9 PM.”
Best Productivity Tip:
“Try not to be perfect and know that you're best is enough. Perfection is an unreachable concept that many people get caught up in. Doing the best to your ability or giving it your all is greater than perfection.”
