Our good friend Joel Beukelman is a man of many talents. He’s a UX Designer at Google, who used to work for Netflix (how’s that for name dropping?), who’s raising two strong boys with his lovely (and equally talented) wife. But his greatest talent of all is managing to work to live and balancing his passions for both work and family. It’s what we all struggle with, no matter what our profession, and it’s a topic he along with an all star list of guests tackle every week on his podcast, The Balance Podcast. We were honored to join him on his show to talk about where we land on the work/life seesaw and how we keep that baby from teetering too far one way or the other. I don’t think either of us stick our foots in our mouths too much but I for sure butcher some names under the pressure of the spotlight. Let’s just call it payback for no one ever knowing my name ever and always calling me, “Jen.” Head over and take a listen to our podcast or any of the slew of other awesome designers, devs, photographers, etc that have all tickled his microphone.
