What does it mean to receive the Rising Star Award?
It is an honor to be recognized with this award. It has been such a pleasure working with The Ad Club team and building such a strong partnership with an organization that helps connect and bring everyone together. I have greatly enjoyed the organizing and planning of events together and look forward to what is to come in the future with our partnership. Thank you so much for this opportunity to work with a great group of people.
What does work/life balance look like in your life?
It is hard to always find that balance with the technology that we have today. We have a mini computer in our hands at all times. I constantly remind myself throughout the day, work as hard as you can so that when you leave the office, you can enjoy your personal time. One major change I have added to my daily routine is a workout plan. When I am at the gym every morning, my only focus is my health and being happy. This puts me in the right mindset and starts my day off positive.
What tips would you give your younger self when it comes to work/life balance?
There’s nothing more important than your health and family/friends. Put in the hard work during the week and let your reward be that you can enjoy creating memories with those that you love. Set up an agenda of what you need to accomplish each day so that you can leave the work week feeling good and ready to unwind.
What do you think the benefits of unplugging are?
Being able to fully live and enjoy being in the moment, less stress and health problems, being more productive during working hours. Unplugging helps you to enjoy your work more, everyone needs a chance to let their minds rest and have a little fun!
