Parenting whilst working from home with Shari Medini and Karissa Tunis Lady Leadership with Sam McIntyre

    • Entrepreneurship

I had a great delight this week to interview two guests on the show - Shari Medini and Karissa Tunis. Parenting experts and founders of the popular website, Adore Them Parenting, Shari and Karissa used their time over Covid to write a book - called Parenting whilst working from home. 

Shari and Karissa had both been working from home for about a decade whilst raising their families and creating their businesses - so they knew through their own experiences how to effectively combine the needs of both.

As more parents work from home than ever before, there are unique challenges when it comes to meeting the demands of their job, helping their kids thrive, and finding even five minutes to take care of themselves. Parenting While Working from Home offers tips, strategies, and reflections to help parents balance their careers, connect with their kids, and establish their inner strength over the course of a year.

We discussed that it is ok to be a working parent and we discussed some practical strategies to help combine the two. Plus we discussed how to figure this out for you and your schedule and your family. We also talked about what do you really need and also hobbies. 

You are going to absolutely love this chat! Thanks, Shari and Karissa for being on the show! 

About me: My name is Samantha McIntyre and after 30 years in business and technology - from starting out on the helpdesk to the C suite, being on Executive boards, and being a mother and entrepreneur! I am passionate about helping women in their careers and business. What I have enjoyed the most in my roles is helping those around me succeed - particularly women!  I have lead technology teams for some of the biggest businesses and brands in Australia and the world such as Tesco, Loreal, Coles, Woolworths, and Sportsgirl. So if you're looking for someone who knows what it is like to be a woman in business and technology plus being a mother and an entrepreneur then you've come to the right place.
