 Why does flexibility matter to me?

Without flexibility there is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t have been able to build the career I have, while also raising three children and, mostly, keeping my sanity.

Flexibility means that while my days and weeks don’t always look the same my productivity remains high and I’m able to manage my personal and professional commitments in a way that works for me, my employer and my family.
