Rural Media Group
Everything’s coming up roses for Gottsch, who oversees Rural Media Group’s marketing efforts, including spearheading the company’s award-winning Tournament of Roses float. After Rural Media Group purchased FamilyNet in October 2012, the tactical planner assisted with the acquired cable channel’s merger with RURAL TV, and Rural Media Group’s network rebrand. “Rural Media Group is a family-owned and operated business, so coming in every day and being able to say good morning to my father and sister is a blessing not many get to enjoy,” she says.
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance is first accepting there is no perfect balance on a weekly basis. Some weeks you will work endless hours and other weeks you are able to take more time for yourself. Best trick I have found is making it a point to schedule time for myself on my calendar. I schedule my workouts, I schedule vacations, I schedule days to take off and just relax around the house. By putting these personal days on my schedule, in advance, I am more likely to stick to the schedule and take time for myself. You schedule meetings on your calendar all day long, why not schedule meetings to meet with yourself?
