Dana Good, a King of Prussia public relations account executive, organized her personal and professional lives to succeed in a completely remote career. Robin Madell, MSN, reported how Good balances responsibilities at home and on the job.
“I’m so grateful that I started my career virtually,” Good said. “It’s been the best thing for me.”
Good works at FischTank PR, a New York City firm where she spent time as a virtual intern.
She finds the upsides plentiful.
“Daily walks in the morning and evening are crucial for me,” she said. “I can take doctors’ appointments more easily, and I eat a lot less take-out food, as I have time to cook and experiment with meal prepping … .
“Also, I get to work with my cat in my lap …, which helps with my well-being.”
Her personal-professional balance is solid, but flexible. She admits to telling a colleague on a video conference call that she was not engaging her camera so she could leave a skin-treatment face mask on.
The colleague understood the request for privacy; she told Good she had whitened her teeth earlier that same morning.
