Work-Life - Is It In Balance?

Do you find that while at work you are preoccupied with responsibilities at home (childcare, eldercare etc.) and after work you are worried about returning emails and planning for upcoming meetings?  If so, you are not alone. Americans are working 47 hours per week and struggling to maintain a healthy balance.

Robynn shared many strategies to more effectively meet the challenges that so many of us face in today's world.
