Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating Lauren Cook, CEO of Ellis Early Learning for creating the model service model for a socioeconomically, racially, and culturally diverse organization that serves children and families alike.
  • How Covid has tossed this idea of work-life balance out of the window.
  • What the different types of flexibility might look like for your business and finding the right balance of them to begin implementing.
  • How this flexibility contributes to better employee morale and improved performance.
  • My deep thoughts on the stigma of tattoos in the workplace and sharing my birthday tattoo with you!

I am challenging you to be the change and create a business that accounts for the different ways in which we need to move and work to allow more businesses, families, and women to be successful.
