    Work-Life Balance is a Myth​:

    Own Your Twenty-Four and Enjoy Life 


    Lacey Cozens and Randy Boek



    Living the life you want requires perspective, skill, and tools to make it all fit together in a way that maintains sanity and drives progress. Work and career matter and should be positive contributors. Life gives us twenty-four hours each day and finding the right ratio of time and mental energy to fit the demands is a moving target.​

    The Pandemic accelerated a transformation in how and where people work and changed the power dynamic between employer and employee. More never seems to be enough, and exhaustion is all too common. Culture is a decision, and healthy or not it is led by example.​

    This interactive session is co-led by a millennial mom wine industry executive and a boomer dad and grandfather who leads the hand-off to the next generation of executives.  Participants will get a lifetime and a half of tips on living your best life, regardless of the realities over which you have no control.

    Learning Objectives

    Participants will be able to:

    • Regain time and mental energy by reframing “obligations”
    • Network deliberately and strategically to maximize value
    • Inspire others to make changes that enhance both personal and professional engagement

    Doors open at 7:30 for  breakfast and networking conversations!
