As you’re enjoying this time of the year with family and friends (whatever that meetup may look like), it can be so easy to throw yourself into everything and not take a moment to remember that you are only human and cannot be everything to everyone at every moment.
It’s so important to be intentional with your time and your energy, especially in the middle of a busy holiday season. So how do you do that well?
Dr. Debra Dean, President and CEO of Dean Business Consulting, talks about how she’s protected her time spent with her six children and four grandchildren and discusses why she believes women in the workplace should use their business savvy to set airtight boundaries for their families.
