What we’re talking about
- Work-Life Balance
- Working From Home
It’s Not Really Balance
This season has been about work-life balance and Elizabeth shares that it’s not truly about finding a balance. For Elizabeth, it’s about being fully present in the moment and liking the moment you are in. Whether it’s work or play, live in the moment and enjoy the present.
How To Be Productive and Work From Home
Working from home takes structure, knowing yourself and recognizing when you need a break. There are certain times of the day where our energy levels are higher than others and those times should be utilized to their full capacity. Overworking can be an issue when you work from home, so scheduling breaks is a great way to ensure you don’t overdo it. Elizabeth even has weekly strategy meetings with herself where she puts her headphones on and goes for a walk...without music!
Get Out of The House and Start Networking
When you work from home, you tend to be alone most of the time, so it’s always a good idea to get out and start networking. Regardless of whether you’re a remote worker or have an office, networking should always be an item on your list and it can be as simple as going to an event or working from a shared office space for a day. I recommend that if you can’t find your own networking group, then simply launch one yourself!
Keep working hard, but don’t forget to take breaks!

I feel like we don’t take breaks often enough.
My biggest distraction is probably my phone.
I get fueled by being alone.
If you don’t have something for you, launch it for yourself.
I usually set 3 goals. I call them champagne moments.
"So I think the takeaway from that experience... is figure out what your energy levels are so you can figure out how to not be really distracted when you’re working from home and to create your schedule if you can around when your energy levels are."
