"One misconception was that my family would be as excited and interested in my business as I am. The endless hours of homework done at the office, the nights they slept on the couch while I worked through the night grew tiresome for them," says Jen Dunn. "I thought that I could continue functioning at the same fast paced level I did prior to my daughter's arrival. Lately, some things take longer than expected, but to work side-by-side with my family is priceless," says Kristen Brown. "I was pretty overwhelmed in the beginning trying to make every day look the same. There are non- negotiables that we fit in everyday like healthy meals, movement, work hours, and family connection without screens. Create a non-negotiable list for your day and be flexible with the rest to help bring more joy and ease to your life," says Jane Savage. "I believed that I could easily integrate my business with my family and vice versa. I now know that I'm at my best when I block off my time and protect each important area of my life as much as possible," says Filomena Fanelli.
