How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Founder ,

Grove Scuba

My day typically involves checking in students and certified divers in the morning and diving with them in the ocean in the afternoon.

Founder ,

Unnata Aerial Yoga

I would answer some emails which usually revolve around planning for trainings, or helping to manage and organize teachers who teach the Unnata Aerial Yoga technique. Then, I would either practice some aerial acrobatics or yoga or both, teach a yoga class of some sort in the evening, prepare some dinner, meditate, and go to bed. :) Frequently, all of that is done out of my apartment. But, many times I travel to teach.
