As a single mom, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to balance a career and life. As I like to put it to my friends, I don’t have a watch that tells my son what time he is allowed to hug me yet the slightest interruption is guaranteed to crush my focus. Taking that into consideration, this level often seems out of reach. Not to mention the very idea of finding a little equilibrium between the two sounds downright crazy.

It’s not always easy to find this time, but with a little drive and creativity, anyone can manage.
