As Kaitlin Petersen of Business of Home Writes; “A simple truth: PTO alone isn’t enough to combat burnout, and there’s no one-size-fits-all way to keep a team happy and healthy.”

“It comes down to standing in your truth and being your authentic self. The empathy piece of this goes against the traditional idea of what being a boss is supposed to be. But as cheesy as it sounds, when you are boldly radiating who you are, the right people will come.
