Today is “Take Your Kid to Work Day.” A few days ago, I did just that.
Some weeks are fiercer than others. This week, I was a road warrior traveling to California for a speaking engagement, then red-eyeing home to a full calendar of client appointments the next morning. Oh, and I brought my 5-year old daughter with me.
What was I thinking?
I wanted to be with her and I wanted her to have a learning experience.
I remember my first “Take Your Daughter to Work Day.” I went to work with my mom when I was 10. She was an administrative assistant and I was a fifth grader that wanted to be a zoologist.
Clearly, a lot has changed since then.
Now, a business owner, speaker, trainer, and author, I spend my time juggling client priorities and the priorities of my family. It is fun work, yet the road can be a lonely place. That is why I decided to bring my daughter with me to work.
I thought she might just learn something.
