Editorial Reviews


"Mason Donovan concisely illustrates why it's important for individuals and businesses to incorporate mindfulness and intention into the work-life balance process,and how clarifying your purpose can ignite effective change. His highly actionable ideas tap into ways to edit out immediate additions and distractions-- helpful, in particular, to busy parents who struggle with creating work boundaries at home -- as well as how companies can build and sustain inclusive and healthy work-life cultures." (Christine Koh, co-author, Minimalist Parenting: Enjoy Modern Family Life More By Doing Less)

"Donovan's approach to achieving personal and work life presence really hit home for me as a busy working Mom.  He provides excellent advice on how to promote this in your company culture so you and your employees benefit." (Jennifer Wilga, Chief Revenue Officer, MediaRadar)

"The invasion of work life into the space of our personal lives (and the inverse) is as ubiquitous as music, Donovan's pervasive metaphor in The Golden Apple. Donovan takes on this invasion in an enlightening and engaging style through the use of distinguished research, corporate story-telling and case studies, and personal illustrations. Organizational leaders and managers are provided strategically viable solutions to the current dilemma of permeable and distracting boundaries between work life and personal life, and their interplay with diversity and inclusion."  (Tim Harper, Ph.D. In Organizational Studies, Skidmore College)

"Donovan encourages readers to dig deep into methods of keeping work and home from bleeding into each other, both to increase job satisfaction for its own sake and to ensure that productivity doesn't suffer.  The writing is quick, crisp, and snappy.." (Publishers Weekly)
