Michelle Kidd, Executive Assistant

Her #1 trick? “ The most important thing is to take breaks. If you burn yourself out early in the day, you won’t be as productive overall. Take 30 minutes to get away from your desk and watch an episode of a tv show, have a snack, go outside, or whatever you can do to rest your mind and spirit.”

The best advice she’s ever received or given? “Start with the thing you really don’t want to do. If you get it out of the way, then it’s done and it won’t be looming over you anymore.”


Carolina Franca, Graphic Designer

Her #1 trick? “setting the right mood to power up concentration. For example, music usually puts me on the productivity track.”
