Sisarina on CNN
On Thursday, April 1 Sisarina was interviewed by CNN’s Sandra Endo, a national correspondent based in Washington, D.C. Interested in learning more about how small businesses are surviving and thriving in the current economic climate, the women of Sisarina shared advice for balancing work, life and technology in our busy lives.
The segment is scheduled to air soon, but the Sisarina ladies couldn’t wait to share our insights. In a tweet after the interview Sandra Endo highlighted our support for “tech free” days.
At Sisarina we love technology and the convenience that social media platforms lend to our marketing efforts, yet we also love disconnecting and having a quiet moment. Perhaps just as important as being able to disconnect, is learning how to “uncondition” yourself to the sounds of text messages, incoming mail alerts and the other numerous sounds our gadgets make.
Additionally, Sisarina is very supportive of what we do outside the office. We have families, significant others and large (and small) dogs that require our attention. When life gets in the way of work, Sisarina supports us so that we can live in the moment and not have to feel torn between our loyalties to work and family.
