GET THE BALANCE RIGHT
The whole idea of work/life balance – does it actually exist? Sometimes it feels like we’re spinning so many plates, pulling rabbits out of so many hats, and simultaneously running households, managing teams, overseeing homework and devising strategies, it’s impossible to know what’s truly possible.
How can we make it all work? Is there really any way to reach equilibrium as we juggle all the elements in our lives?
Join IMAGE editor-in-chief Melanie Morris for a morning when we pull the mask off Wonder Woman to see just what might dwell beneath (and how she functions!). As always, we’ll have three superb speakers who’ll shed light, share plenty of experience and truths, and inspire as we try to get this work/life balance thing sussed.
