#BigBeacon Twitter Chat – Mar 23 – Bringing Your Life to Your Work

In our culture, work vs. home life have long been seen as opposites. But today’s idea of work isn’t necessarily divorced from everyday life.  Technology now allows more people to work from their literal homes. Men and women are now less confined to choose either work or career. And the digital age has inspired more people to forge their own way, creating businesses on their own terms that better align with their core principles and interests. How has this shift affected individuals, workplaces, and students as they begin to build their lives?

  • How does your work align with your personal life?
  • How do you balance these two areas of life?
  • What skills have you learned in the classroom/workplace that have helped you in daily life?
  • How have you enacted change at work? At home?

Join Emma Schoenfelner (tweeting through @BigBeacon) and Salma Burney (@VirtualGirlFri) who will be hosting #BigBeacon Twitter chat on Wednesday, March 23 from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. EST using the hashtag #BigBeacon.
