What does a typical day look like for you?
Typically, I am awake by 6am. My day normally starts with me getting my son ready for pre-school. Breakfast, change of clothes, and out the door. If the weather is appropriate, I’ll run and take my son to school with him seated comfortably in his jogging stroller. Though busy, I love to workout and always try to get a quick workout in sometime during the day. To pre-school and back at home, I then get ready to start my day at my workspace.
Because I work with various projects such as DeNada, the DC MEET Market, and Topaz + Arrow, my schedule varies each day. Morning hours are dedicated to answering emails before my team arrives at the office. Once they arrive, we have our morning meeting where all tasks for the day are thoroughly discussed. Once tasks are delegated, I’m either at my desk working until late into the day, out of the office running errands, or off to meetings.
Once my son returns from pre-school, my evenings are spent with my family. We’ll have dinner together, followed by my son’s bath time, facetime with my parents, reading a few books, possibly followed by a family movie, then time to get my son ready for bed. If I still have loads of work to complete, I’ll take advantage of the night hours and do some extra work. If not, my husband and I will end the night with a glass of wine and an entertaining show on Apple TV.
What type of calendar do you keep?
I use iCloud calendar on all my devices. With managing several projects, iCloud helps me keep track of my to-dos, events, and client meetings in a very organized manner and makes it accessible where ever I am at.
