Work Life Balance

In this episode 29, Gabi and Emy, the two co-hosts, discuss work life balance and the traps that the illusion of “work life balance” creates.  They offer some ideas on how to set up a “work day balance” instead by planning your day and having the freedom to make adjustments to your day so it doesn’t feel so off scale.

Emy discusses how she’s learning how to say no by getting on Marie Forleo’s “no train.”  How women, especially women attorneys have a problem of over promising and over delivering instead of under promising and over delivering.  So they end up scheduling unrealistic deadlines.

Resources discussed by Emy:
