Informal Interactions with Alexandra Schless

What are your passions beyond work? How do you balance your professional and personal life?

When I am at home, I love spending time with my family. My partner loves to cook. So, our weekends include going to all kinds of shops to source different and fresh ingredients, and then spending time together in the kitchen. As he is an entrepreneur too, he understands my drive and busy work days. However, when I’m at home in the evening or weekends, I can really switch off from work and enjoy other activities, like gardening, cycling, golfing or drinks and dinner with friends. It is so important to keep the right balance and realize that happiness is not only about professional success. It is about having a true home where you can spend time with the people you love and care about.
