In this episode, Barbara and Lori discuss:

  • How Lori struck out on her own and grew her business from a one-woman show at the kitchen table to her current 2 agencies.
  • The myth of work-life balance.
  • Lori’s work and activism with suicide prevention and awareness.


Key Takeaways:

  • When you are stepping away from work, like on vacation, completely disconnect and give yourself the time away. 
  • Be proactive with your customers, don’t just set it and forget it.
  • COVID is going to change the landscape of telemedicine completely, even after the current crisis has passed.
