I love my job. I say it all the time.
I believe in what we do here - at Thumbtack, and as a Community Team. Meeting our pros, bringing them together, hearing their stories, taking part in their journey - is meaningful work. It makes it easy to work hard.
But the biggest motivator for me, to work hard --- my children. Not only do I work hard to provide a good life for them, but I am setting an example - that they can harness their talents and find work that truly fulfills them.
With Mother's Day this weekend, it gets me thinking.... Being a mom to two teenagers with crazy schedules, while working long hours and traveling, can be extremely challenging - and I wouldn't do it for just any job. I have to be very deliberate about finding time for my family, and also for myself. It doesn't have to be anything major - small moments here and there when we can find them.
What tips and tricks do you have for other working moms (or dads)? What do you guys do to celebrate yourselves or give yourselves a break? How will you celebrate Mother's Day this year?
I'm going on a hike and BBQing with these crazies. I'm pretty lucky.
