    153. How Do I WFH during the Summer without Losing My Shit? Tips from Branda Villacob and Melanie Battistelli

    Working from home just hits differently during the summer. Our routines are off, and frankly, I just lose some of my usual motivation during the summer months. At the time this episode airs, I'm also out on maternity leave. So I asked my friends Melanie and Branda to take over the podcast this week, and they definitely delivered!
    They're here to share some great work-from-home tips this summer so you don't completely lose your sanity and get stuff done while also having fun. You'll hear tips on taking time off, having kids home during the summer, sharing a workspace, and more. I hope this episode helps motivate you to push through those days that just feel hard as a business owner this summer.
    And don't forget to let us know what motivates you during the summer! Tag us on Instagram @podcastingforeducators, @duxburydigital, and @therelevantcollective.
