We had the good fortune of connecting with Anastasia Koklamanis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Anastasia, has the Covid-19 Crisis affected your perspective on work-life balance?
I can see now that Work-life balance is, at its heart, about flexibility and individualism. As I am Grateful that my family is safe and has good health, I am also heartbroken I had to temporarily close my own business that I’ve worked so hard for, it has also quickly changed how I will change things going forward, I didn’t take time to breath for a minute, literally, non-stop sometimes for 14 hours, now I will be making sure to start early and finish up early, to hang out more with my 8 month old granddaughter and give more time to myself so I can bring more value to my workspace and my clients

What should our readers know about your business?
It is where you can come and get Luxury Hair Extensions and Effortless Color, and also just chill, hang out and chat about all things life!
