Having It All By Not Doing It All, with Jessica Schoefernacker and Jen Manthei

What does it take to handle two demanding jobs, especially when both jobs can require long hours, nights, weekends, and stress? There’s no way around it, being a working mother in the events and hospitality industry is tough. In this episode, I am joined by Jessica Schoefernacker, Director of Sales and Marketing from the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile, and Jen Manthei, an independent meeting & event consultant – both mothers of young children. They weigh in on the good, the bad, the highs and lows, and what exactly it takes to be able to do it all. Spoiler alert – you can’t, and that’s okay! Whether you are looking for specific strategies or simply some words of encouragement, this episode is here to help.
