What Keeps You Up At Night?

What Keeps You Up At Night?
We've talked on many occasions about managing our well being. Now, we're tackling sleep (or lack thereof). As parents and entrepreneurs, there are so many things that keep us up at night, both personal and professional. We talk through all of the little things that prevent us from drifting off to see if we can finally put some of those concerns to bed. Literally.

You know the feeling: You look forward to plopping into bed all evening, but once you're finally there you can't seem to turn off your brain. Everything you could ever possibly contemplate suddenly seems to worry you. What is your sales pipeline looking like? How are the kids doing? Why is the world...the way that it is?

Whether it's something personal, professional or regarding the large grey area in between, we all lay awake at night worrying from time to time. For entrepreneurs, that might be more often than not. While we've all heard study after study about how important a good night's rest is to our success and well being, worrying about not getting enough sleep just, ironically, keeps us up longer.

Our consensus? Chances are, if it enters your brain while you're laying in bed, it's not as big of a deal as it seems. Still, how can we tell our brain to chill out (for just a few hours, at least) so we can get some rest?

Lady Boss
Searching for the perfect cocktail for your post-stressful-afternoon-meeting debrief? Lady Boss is a sophisticated, sweet and simple concoction that blends Aviation Gin (our favorite), ginger beer, lime and simple syrup. Refreshing and crisp, this combination tastes like how coming up with a fresh, new idea at the end of a long brainstorm feels.


  • 2 oz. Aviation Gin
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • Ginger beer


  1. Pour gin, lime juice and simple syrup in an ice-filled shaker.
  2. Shake well and pour in an ice-filled glass.
  3. Top off with ginger beer.
  4. Garnish with lime rings like the boss you are.
