Maid Brigade Shares Work/Life Balance Tips

August 26th was the anniversary of the women’s right to vote and in honor of that great accomplishment the national franchise Maid Brigade, compiled advice from a few women leaders, including an executive with Maid Brigade, sharing their tips and thoughts on achieving a balance between your home and family and your career:

  • Flexibility in your work schedule is key-ask for it or find a company that offers it.
  • Plan “me time” and put it on your calendar-Set up date nights with your spouse and schedule time with family and friends. If you have drinks with the girls or a massage planned, you’ll manage your time to make it happen.

  • Become an expert at asking for help-from family, friends, neighbors, and fellow parents.
  • Use your support system-Pick up the phone when you’re late for a daycare pickup. We’re all in this together!
