"Is Work Life Balance Even Possible?" (Creator's Block, Ep. 75)
By Liz Murphy
Ah, work-life balance. It's kind of like parenting or finding true love -- everyone has an opinion about it.
"There's no such thing as work-life balance, only work-life blend."
"There's no such thing as work-life balance, only LIFE!"
"You can only spend X number of hours a day doing work, without ruining your personal life."
"If you're not committing X number of hours to work, is it even worth doing or being passionate about?"
The sheer number of opinions about work-life balance can be exhausting to sift through. It's unfortunate since it's a necessary conversation, as remote workforces and having clients that span the globe are much more commonplace, making it harder and harder to "punch out" at 5 p.m., on the dot.
So, this week, we invited our very own Director of Strategic Partnerships Vin Gaeta back to the podcast to unpack this popular topic. (He recently just got married and has a little baby girl on the way, so he had a lot of great thoughts about finding that perfect balance.)
Listen to the Episode
What We Talked About
- How do we define work-life balance for ourselves?
- What do we think about the hot takes a lot of folks have about work-life balance?
