Episode #5: Changing the Way We Work with Madeleine Shaw

“Instead of struggling to manage work/life balance, there was a place that was designed to make them easy, fun and inspiring? What if you could bring your kids to work with you? What if your workplace was more playful? What if integration is the new balance?”

On this episode, I chat with Madeleine Shaw, a social entrepreneur and the Founder of Aisle (formerly Lunapads), a line of reusable menstruation products and Nestworks, a family-friendly workspace. Madeleine is on a mission to make the world a better place over the course of her 27 years in business and most recently has been trying to improve the lives of working parents. Enjoy this inspiring conversation about doing good, following your passions, and the future of work.
