“To balance my week, I exercise daily and eat very clean — but I also save Friday afternoons for happy hour with friends! It wasn’t until I quit my media executive job six years ago that I found true balance in my life. I’m naturally a night owl, and 25 years of early-morning commutes, 10-plus-hour days and the stresses of management were difficult. Now I’ve followed my own rhythm, rediscovered what I love about journalism and found a niche writing about drinks.”
