Derm_YoutubeSpace-30.jpg

We are often asked what balance looks like for us, and honestly, we don’t know!  There is an incredible plus balance looks different to every person. We were part of an event put on by us, Youtube, and Dermalogica on International Women’s Day, surrounding the topic that balance is BS. Achieving balance in life is such a trendy thing to talk about, and at this event, we sat alongside other amazing women to debunk the idea of balance. The panel featured Danika Brysha, Sara Tan, Deepica Mutyala, and Jane Wurwand. Each woman offered so much value and insight to business, entrepreneurism, and this idea that balance is BS. We are so excited for you to give this episode a listen.
