One of our reasons for moving to Arkansas, was for me to be able to stay at home, and work part time if I wanted.

One of the ways I have seen collaboration is learning that several of the staff (CEO, administrative assistants, area directors) are trained in various aspects to help at the ropes course - so they can help out when we're in dire need of extra hands during an event.
Another one of the reasons Lynette-working-part-time actually works...Luke comes to work with me. And in this case, while mommy was climbing, Luke was
making sure daddy's technique was correct taking his afternoon nap!
