In a second, I’ll tell you a funny story about that.

Self-Care Isn’t Selfish

Obviously, yall know I work from home. I have one little baby bird still in the nest. He’s one of the reasons I chose to start this crazy, wacky, sometimes stressful, never a dull moment lifestyle. One thing I’ve learned about working from home is that although we certainly have more power over how we work and when we work (unless you’re a remote employee required to keep certain hours), it’s not always easy to keep work and home separated.
