Get Real with Caroline Hobby
April is someone I greatly admire. Not only does she do incredible work and turn homes into masterpieces that create a feeling of comfort, peace and beauty, but she is WOKE as the young kids say. I have known April for quite some time now, she even helped me update/design my home when we first moved in 6 years ago. April has given me incredible advice as a new mother as well. We talk about that on this podcast. We talk about how balance, boundaries and self care are the cornerstones to her success. April has an all female staff. She is a trailblazer for women in the workplace by offering “personal hours” on top of vacation and sick days so the women and moms who work for her don’t have to feel guilty, explain, or lie about why they are leaving work early to go to their child’s game, function, etc... or why they need to have someself care hours to get their hair done. She’s all about keeping the full person of her employees and herself cared for and fueled.That’s what makes for her great and motivated staff.She’s also all about playing into and embracing your strengths while being grateful and supportive of others who thrive in your weak zones. April has built her business around healthy boundaries and respect and she does not budge when it comes to her daughters. Her time with them is sacred and she is so intentional to have worked turned off and blocked off so she can be the present mom that she desires to be. She also shares the DIY tips that everyone wants to know who can’t afford a top designer for their home. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
