How One Working Mom Finds Work/Life Balance

TiffanyShlainTiffany Shlain knows a thing or two about juggling. She’s a successful filmmaker with a million side projects (like her AOL On Originals series) and she’s a wife and mother of two.

So how does Shlain create that seemingly impossible work/life balance that so many working mothers crave? For one thing, she says it’s important to have flexibility with your work, whether you’re a man or a woman. She also believes that modern technology has helped working mothers tremendously:

Make your own schedule. Or talk to your boss about a more flexible schedule. I think that what the Internet has given our generation is this kind of flexibility to work in new, creative ways that our mothers did not have. I have friends who work for corporations, but most of my friends work from home as consultants or own their own business. I feel like the Internet was the tool that the feminist movement always needed.
