3 Tips on Organizing Your Life With a Career and a Family

  1. Have a joint email for your family – this is for all the family emails: doctors, schools, daycares, utilities. 
  2. Have a joint digital calendar for your family – so you can easily sync your family calendar with your work calendar. 
  3. Have a shared to do list app (i.e. Todoist)

I’m rooting for you friends!
