If you could set up your work schedule and environment however you wanted, what would that look like? I feel so lucky that Lauren and I are aligned with our workflows and are able to maximize our energy, prioritize self care, and still make major progress with building Lite Pink. We discuss some things that people can do if they want to have a conversation with their boss about creating a more flexible and non-traditional routine, and also what to do if you’re an entrepreneur. It can be so easy to burn out and feel resentful when it feels like you’re working 24/7, but there are ways to find a better work-life balance that will help you reach your goals without constantly sacrificing what makes you happy.
