Why is Work/Family Balance So Hard at #DadChat

Category: #DadChat

We often hear the expression Work/Life Balance. I prefer Work/Family Balance because we are all in some sort of family and that is the struggle and challenge we all face these days. Let’s look at what we can and cannot do to ease this conundrum. And, let’s look at it with #DadChat friend Kimunya Mugo from Kenya – LIVE from Kenya – on Thursday, March 6 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. Lead by Choice is Kimunya’s blog.

Work-Life Balance

The Kumunyas

                                                          The Kumunyas

Who is Kimunya Mugo? In his own words: “I am man with a burning passion for family, authentic leadership, communication and branding. My belief is that leadership, communication and branding are so intricately connected, that without one, the other(s) cease to exist in their totality.

You can expect to engage with a seasoned communication specialist with direct experience in communication strategy, publishing, branding, social media, development communication, media relations, campaigns, photography and film-making for development. Helping people to become unmistakably authentic is what drives me.

A parenting coach since 2007, together with my awesome wife, we have three children and live in Nairobi, Kenya.”

AND, he has a book…again, in his own words: “Down But Not Out: Becoming a Significant Leader at Home” is my story on why I chose to lead my family with purpose. It is a journey of how I chose to have a vision, the painful choices I had to make (career, family, friends, etc.), and the need to be of service to others in the community.”
