8:33 AM
This is the third installment of my MommyTasker Interview Series (see Interview #1 and Interview #2) wherein I ambush my friends, colleagues, and random strangers, hold them hostage for roughly three minutes, and ask them to share with us, off the cuff, what they do to "MommyTask" their way through work, life and parenting. 

This point of these "interviews" is to broaden the perspective on the issues I am discussing here at MommyTasker. I love hearing how others are fitting it all in, and especially how they are engaging their kids in living active and healthy lifestyles. With each of these interviews I am learning things that I am applying in my own life, and hope they become a source of inspiration for you too.

In order of appearance, and in their own words:

The Engineer

Basic stats: Consulting engineer, father of two, aspiring surfer and vitner
What I learned from him: Focusing on your diet can be as, or even more, critical that exercise.

The Professor
Basic stats: Assistant Professor at UC Berkeley, mother of one, strong climber and badass biostatistitian
What I learned from her: Having it all is really, really hard - you have to give yourself a break on those days and those weeks when you just can't do it all and be it all.

The Realtor
Basic stats: Residential realtor, mother of two, an all-around athlete
What I learned from her: Just grab and go. You can figure things out along the way.

Please let me know if there are questions you wish I was asking, or if you have a perspective that you would be willing to share. If any of these interviews inspired you to do something new and different, I (and I am sure the interviewee) would love that feedback too.
