Work Life Balance

In case you missed it, last week I met with Miri Bar Natan, or Meshuganehmum, as she’s known on Snapchat. I’ve already shared our conversation about Snapchat with you, and this week, I want to share the continuation of our discussion and cover the work-life balance and Meshuganehmum’s take on women’s right of passage.
