Hello, I’m Audrey and I’m a workaholic.

One has to be able to work in any circumstance…
February 2019 – Lyon, France

Me: “I love to work!”

Them: “What? Why?” [cue eye-roll]

Me: “Work is fun!”

Them: “…”

Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.


Check. Mission accomplished.

But, of course, it’s not always sunshine and roses. It took me a 20+-years career to understand the difference between “a job” and “working”. And while sometimes I’m bored with my job, that doesn’t mean that I’m not still in love with the concept of working.

I’m a workaholic and proud to be

I attended a productivity workshop this week. The moderator asked how many hours we would like to be working in an ideal day. The answers ranged from four to six. I was in team six… and I was lying.

Ideally, I’d like to spend no more than six hours of my day on client work, but that doesn’t mean I would not continue producing content, writing, organizing conferences and happy hours, giving talks and workshops, bouncing ideas off a like-minded network, learning a new skill, and more.

That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t still be working.

As much as I enjoy the occasional break and putting my brain on pause for a while, I get bored really fast. It’s my curse. But it’s also a gift I chose to nurture instead of repress.

That’s how I became a digital nomad. When I realized I could combine two of my favorite things (working and traveling) I was on cloud nine. Those two things were no longer opposing each other, in the traditional work-vacation way.

That’s also how I embraced the idea of being a multipotentialite. And made peace with the fact that juggling several project was a way for me to find balance.

The underlining theme of all that was simple: my love of working.

More often than not, in people’s minds, work is the enemy of fun. But what if we changed our definition of work? What if work became the act of creating something? What if we redefined our goals and tried to become masters at creating that thing? Wouldn’t work become a lot more interesting?
