Balancing a million-dollar media company with family life is an important decision for Brit + Co CEO and founder Brit Morin.
After college Morin worked for the likes of Google, YouTube and Apple, before going on to found Brit + Co five and a half years ago. The website aims to inspire women to create and learn new skills, with online tutorials and articles on anything from cooking to home décor.
Since starting her digital media company for women, her website has ballooned, reaching over 100 million readers every month.
But so has her family life. Now with a husband and two children (a one-year-old, and a two-year-old), Morin has learned to fit her work around her family. She does this by making a point of leaving the office every day at 5:15 p.m.
"I think it's so important to have that balance, and that's the beauty of living in a digital world —we can get back online later and finish up the day," she told CNBC in an episode of Life Hacks Live.
"I'm working a lot, but that's the only way to get it done. And I really do believe that when you have young kids you've got to be on with them and spending quality time with them as much as possible."
