Biz: Working from home can make work-life balance challenging. How did you manage it?
B.B.: I think it’s about just giving yourself a break. I have four children who range in ages from 11 to two, and it was definitely a challenge because everyone was at home—all six of us. But I allowed myself those breaks during the day. If my husband and two-year-old came downstairs to do something, I would take those 20 minutes to play
with my two-year-old.
Biz: Do you anticipate permanent changes to your management approach?
B.B.: On some level I plan to maintain some of that flexibility; for example, I’m still working from home a day or two a week. But I will say that it’s interesting how much I enjoyed coming back to the office and doing my normal routine, as silly as that sounds. Regardless, I feel like our team is stronger now than we were a year ago, and I’m thankful for that.
