What change would make workplaces friendlier to work-life balance? “Free or low-cost services that provide quality information about specific life needs, such as child or elder care, adoption, hospice, etc., are valuable tools that can help people find balance.”
What do you wish someone had told you when you were first starting out in business? “Find purpose in what you do each day. Although your purpose may change and evolve during your life and career, having purpose leads to greater satisfaction.”
