THYL Meeting – Work/Life Balance

January 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

New Year. New Focus. Let’s talk about finding Work/Life Balance.

One of our most attended sessions at the Leadership Conference was about Work/Life Balance. This is an ongoing quest for professionals everywhere, and some say it isn’t really possible. However, when you’re able to learn to balance your professional career and personal life, making time for everything that matters, you’ll find more fulfillment, and that you achieve more of what matters.


Guest Speaker: Dana Simons, Executive Director of the Next Step Foundation.

Hear how Dana personally learned to manage her ‘workalohism’ and how achieving work/life balance has been one of her biggest life achievements. She will also share the importance of creating and maintaining boundaries

Dana shared, “My personal mission is to model, promote and influence the fulfillment of individual potential for all of those I can reach”
