Brigid Schulte, author of the best-selling book Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time presented a spirited plea for time serenity in her talk at this year’s Bold In Business Forum on October 22, 2015. Her message on the necessity of making time for play and leisure, despite everyone’s busy life, resonated well with the crowd gathered at the Marriott Hotel in Albany. We asked our “Voices in the Crowd” why they had chosen to attend and whether work-life balance was an issue in their life:
Why did you choose to attend today’s event?
Megan: “The topic of stress and feeling overwhelmed is a concern for many women. I look forward to hearing some practical advice from the speaker.”
What are your thoughts about the topic of today’s event – time management and work-life balance?
Hollyanne: “It is certainly something we all experience- being overworked and over-stressed and needing to find a way to balance. Hearing this message from the women of the Women’s Business Council is powerful and influential, at least personally for myself. I always enjoy coming to these events because there is so much I take away.”
