Denver, CO - National Franchise System SeekingSitters' motto of "Family First" was anything but what CEO Adrienne Kallweit was practicing in 2013. Her family's business was growing rapidly and it was apparent the stress was affecting her family in a negative way. She decided to do something about it and gave herself a CEO Time-Out! Kallweit spent the year traveling the country RV style, homeschooling her three young children and getting back to "family first".
This did not come without detailed planning and a lot of support. "I developed a 13-month plan to help ease myself out of the day-to-day needs of the company. Each day was a challenge but I knew it would come with great rewards." says Kallweit. And that it did, Kallweit was not only able to help her family heal, through some crazy cross country adventures, but when she needed to get back to work she was able to develop a "work/life balance" plan that fit her much more chilled-out family.
Her goal is to provide this work-life balance for her franchisees that run SeekingSitters locations across the country. So Kallweit and her whole family are traveling cross-country RV style to visit the' franchisees across the nation and record their "work/life balance" stories. Each franchisee has their own inspirational "work/life balance" story.
This week the RV tour will be in Denver with local mom and owner Jennifer Hill. "My former career was so demanding that I constantly missed important family events. I knew I had to find a better way to have a career and make family a priority. Being part of SeekingSitters has time and again reminded that Work/Life Balance can really happen," explains Jennifer Hill.

During the RV stop in Denver, SeekingSitters will be hosting a tailgate party to celebrate their Member Appreciation Day, work/life balance stories, and meet-up with sitters and members in the area. The "Work/Life Balance RV" will be at Gameworks, with Jennifer Hill on June 18th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm.
