Reena Vokoun has recently relocated from the silicone valley to the San Diego area. She is the founder and CEO of Passion Fit™ as well as a TEDx speaker, media spokesperson, certified wellness expert, personal and professional development coach and consultant, content creator, and marketer. In this episode, Reena talks about how she is always striving for work-life balance, especially after experiencing burnout from previously working in corporate America/tech/Silicon Valley for so many years and because of her focus with her company on work-life balance with clients and organizations. Reena acknowledges that, to this day, it's not always perfect, things can get busy, especially with parenting her two boys plus their recent move and a book launch; but she always tries to get back into a good balance again. She's passionate about having the ability to work from home in order to have more flexibility, work-life balance, and time to focus on one's health and wellbeing. This is a key part of the work she does through Passion Fit™ and also is a big topic in her new book, The Wellness-Empowered Woman™.

Reena comes from a background where she spent years in the office doing marketing, sales, and business development for Google, Reebok, and several other large companies. At some point, however, she became more mindful of the level of burnout she was experiencing and started to focus more and more on health and wellness and reduced her hours to some degree at work as she was wanting to be a hands-on mom as well, and she started working on some of the things that have now become Passion Fit™. Today, she serves companies, nonprofits, universities, schools, and the media through Passion Fit products, services, and content on fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, and work-life balance. Some of her tips involve communicating and setting boundaries at home and at work, keeping a calendar and color-coding different activities to manage your day, taking breaks, moving your body, and more. Reena's book, online course, coaching and consulting services, speaking engagements, workshops, retreats, and online content from her blog and YouTube channel can appeal to people who do or want to work from home. There is content focused on fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, work-life balance, productivity, and leading a healthy lifestyle within these products, services, and content.
