Time to relax!
- “In order to build great stuff in an ever-changing environment, we need to start investing in our people instead of our process. Thinking in this way has allowed my team to build better products, spread critical knowledge throughout our team, and encourage great increases in individual skill and confidence. Who doesn’t want that?” – Facilitating Collaboration
- “‘I don’t know how she does it.’ I hear this. People say this about me. Like, I’m standing RIGHT THERE and people will say it to someone else. It’s a cliché thing to say—I mean, come on, Sarah Jessica Parker starred in a movie called, yes, ‘I Don’t Know How She Does It’—but, okay. I get the sentiment. I own a business, travel weekly, write things, raise children, own a home, own a dog, have friends, etc. etc. … how do I do it all? – Hahahaha. I don’t. Please. No one does.” – Here are but a few of the things I don’t do
