A CEO's view of work/life balance

I just interviewed Maxine Clark, founder and chairman of Build-A-Bear Workshop, a retail chain with more than 200 stores. Clark took the concept of stuffing, dressing and sewing a teddy bear and turned it into a $350 million business traded publicly on the New York Stock Exchange.
Clark had this to say about work/life balance:
''I do what I love and love what I do so it’s not work. I love being in the retail business. I love to shop. I love consumer behavior. I so much love what do everyday that work is not work, not for me.''
You have to admire someone who enjoys her life!
