Featured Interview: Lisa Tomasi in NJBIZ

Last week, our president Lisa Tomasi was featured in online publication NJBIZ.com to speak on the founding of YouGiveGoods, the importance of work-life balance and to provide a few crucial tips for women at work.

We've highlighted a few key excerpts below:

The best part of working at YouGiveGoods
"No matter what happens in a workday, knowing that later in the week we will be delivering thousands of pounds of food to a food pantry or toys to help children or pet supplies to animal shelters makes my job the best job ever."

The most important takeaway from education
"How to learn, solve problems and manage time in order to accomplish your goals. ..If you can master critical thinking and learn to look at problems and solutions in unique and intelligent ways, successes in and out of the classroom will find you."

Top five things for successful women to master
"Believe in their abilities and intelligence. Lead by example and actions. Be fearless. Know that failures are a part of success. True failure is not learning from the mistakes. Be your own person. Make decisions and take actions that are true to you and your beliefs."

Best advice regarding work/life balance
"The most useful thing to balance the pulls of work and life is fun. To be happy and fulfilled, work-life and life-life has to contain a high degree of enjoyment and satisfaction. If one part of life (or both) does not have the “fun” element, then the balance will fail and personal, financial and business success may be elusive."
