We do not spend equal time at both places, have equal or similar roles, responsibilities and support to name a few inequalities.

Lauran Star will take your audience of a journey of work/life empowerment as she utilizes cake as a metaphor for time and energy. Your audience session with several sound tips in the area of communication, resilience and being present that work both at home and in the work place.
