Thank you for sharing! I have often said that work is way easier than my mat leaves. While I wouldn’t trade those two years for the world it was tough to be at home. Mostly alone and not building/creating/engaging with grown ups. To balance things out I ended up meeting semi-regularly with some really engaging senior people to work on a side project. It kept me engaged and gave me an outlet to talk about innovation, tech, and young talent that I didn’t get at home.
