Introducing… a Week in the Life (for Corporette)!

rocks stacked on top of each other

A few weeks ago, readers noted that they really loved our Week in the Life series over at CorporetteMoms, but wished we had one over here at Corporette that asked work-life balance questions of businesswomen regardless of whether they were moms. So… we’ve put one together, and we are thrilled to introduce it today! You can click here to submit an entry, or click here to see a PDF of the questions

A few notes on the questions:

As always, submissions with email addresses are vastly preferred so we can ask follow-up questions and give you previews of the post ahead of time, but you could also give us your phone number if you’d prefer to talk to someone on the phone. You will not be added to any sort of email list when you give us your emails, and we will hold all information pursuant to our privacy policy.

A note to working moms: you’re welcome to submit either to CorporetteMoms or Corporette. That said, though, if a lot of your week involves childcare or parenting issues, you may want to submit over at CorporetteMoms instead.  

30-Foot View. There are two changes from the way our CorporetteMoms form has been set up in the past (and we may bring the changes over there as well) — the first is that we’re asking for a 30-foot view of the past 3-6 months. When I was in BigLaw my life was kind of monotonous, with the weekdays all basically being some combo of “exercise and go to work” with dating sprinkled in, and the weekends all being some combo of “exercise, shop, friends/dates, eat/drink, Netflix” — but that time period of my life felt totally insane because there were stretches of intense weeks and months for reasons like long work hours, work travel,”friend milestone” events, family drama like grandparents dying, and more. I’d love your thoughts on this — would you hesitate to fill a “Week in My Life” form out because your first reaction would be that your life is too monotonous/the same, or that each week varies so greatly based on work demands that there is no single representative “week” for you? As readers, are you more interested in the 30-foot view or the day to day view? Do you think there’s a better way to understand someone’s work-life balance rather than ask them what they did last week? 

Pick one: The second big change from CorporetteMoms is that, in addition to the “tell us about your week” questions, we’re adding in a slightly odd thing, which is “pick ONE question about your lifestyle to answer more in depth and tell us about it.” So far these are the questions — we may add more or change the existing ones as options as the process goes on. Whoever submits a form will pick ONE of these ten questions to answer. (I’d love to have everyone answer all ten, but I understand time is limited!) 

1. What does work-life balance mean to you?
2. Share some of your big wins with us, whether personal or professional — the more recent the better!
3. Exercise – what kind of exercise do you do in your life? How big of a priority is it to you, and why?
4. Eating plans / diet / food – Are you following an eating plan or specific diet? Do you have thoughts on it or tips on how you make it work in your lifestyle?
5. Describe 1) your typical outfit for work and 2) a work outfit that you really loved.
6. If you won the lottery tomorrow, how would your life change? Shopping/travel/new career?
7. What’s in your bag (purse or tote) right now?
8. What’s one thing that surprised you about your industry, career, or job?
9. Life lessons: What’s a major life lesson or two that you would share with other Corporette readers, whether you’ve learned them the hard way or used them as guiding principles?
10. Please recommend 3 great ____ (books, movies, podcasts, or anything else you’re passionate about) and tell us in a quick sentence why each is so awesome.

 Again, taking myself as an example, I would have had passionate answers to 3, 4, 5, 9, and 10 — but probably not to some of the other ones.

Readers, what are your thoughts — what additional questions would you want to ask a businesswoman about her work-life balance? What about your own life would this form not capture that you think other people would be interested in?

If one of your goals this year is to get into better physical shape, then why not become a snack while looking like a snack and doing it all by supporting Black women? Allow us to introduce you to CultureFit; the new, high-performance active wear brand by and for Black women.

Founded in early 2018 by a group of West African descendent women, CultureFit understands the need for athletic gear that fits the many shapes and sizes of Black women. The women of CultureFit believed in a place “where wellness, womanhood, and global consciousness intersect with comfort, body positivity, and the pursuit of a healthy, active lifestyle” and we couldn’t agree more.

CultureFit prides itself on manufacturing activewear that’s high-quality and high-performance with high-style and showcases our culture infused with modern day tastes. CultureFit’s athletic clothing is made with West African textiles that’ll allow you to work out, look good, feel good and pay homage to the culture. From bras to tops to leggings and even eco-friendly yoga mats, each material is made with moisture-wicking fabric that’ll hug your body type just right and allow you to perform even better as you start to sweat it all out.

Above all else, the CultureFit team believes in open mindedness, a judgement-free zone and having no boundaries and makes all of their products for Black women with these three principles in mind.
