THE BALANCE PROJECT | No. 89: Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin, Founders of theSkimm

When we started theSkimm, we had zero work-life balance. We worked around the clock to get the company off the ground. And it was necessary. Although we still have crazy schedules, we have adjusted our schedules so that there are clear work and clear non-work times. It’s not easy but it’s necessary. The company won’t survive unless we are functioning people and to do that, we need to have perspective.
