The dreadful treadmill of office culture looms before us as COVID restrictions lift. Back to the normal life of commuting away from our families, back to Monday through Friday spent under harsh fluorescent lights, back to the 9-5 grind that can absorb more time than “9-5” implies. With a taste of work-from-home independence, many have realized that “normal” wasn’t working for them. So what now? Today we chat with Kimberly Crossland, a business coach who founded Roadpreneur and Cruisin’ and Campfires.
Kimberly’s unique exposure to Denmark’s well-balanced workplace culture left her with a different idea of “normal,” one that would surprise most Americans. Upon her return to the country, Kimberly knew there was a better way to work. As a result, she built her businesses around the idea that people should be able to have it all: A good job, flexibility, family, travel, and the joy that comes with it.
- Kimberly tells her entrepreneurial story, beginning in Denmark and culminating in two successful businesses
- Where does America’s workplace culture fall short?
- Setting boundaries with ourselves when we’re self-employed
- How do you pronounce “hygge?”
- The benefits of social media

About The New World Normal:
The New World Normal with Debbie Harrell examines the profound cultural shift incurred by COVID-19. As we re-enter society from the isolated chaos of a global pandemic, we have each been given an unprecedented opportunity to sculpt our culture. With this power comes the question: What kind of world would you like to live in? Each episode of The New World Normal looks forward with optimism and guidance from qualified guests to question a dynamic, a standard, or an institution that has perhaps been taken for granted. Join Debbie as she explores what worked, what didn’t, and what we can do about it.
