The decision also has allowed them to integrate their six-year-old daughter into their work life seamlessly. One February weekend ‘we each had office hours, I brought my daughter in on Saturday, she brought her in on Sunday,’ says Shanata. ‘That meant the other person could focus on their work [that day].’
