The Myth of Work Life Balance

Amy chats with Jon Gordon about “Work-Life Balance.” It’s a phrase we hear often. But author Jon Gordon doesn’t think it really exists. At least not in the way most “experts” talk about it.He, like most people, have never been able to balance the scales of work/life on a day-to-day basis. Rather, he’s come to realize that the dance between work and life is more about rhythm than balance.

Soup! Glorious Soup!

Soup is the food of the world and every culture produces its own delicious variations on this universal theme. At once comforting and familiar, it can at the same time be exotic and exciting.

About Amy

Amy Tobin fell in love with food as a young girl and began throwing her first dinner parties in high school. She’s come a long way since then, entertaining staffers from Bon Appetit and Gourmet magazines, interviewing Paula Deen, developing recipes for Gold Star Chili, writing a cookbook and creating the on-air segment “Amy’s Table” on Q102.


But her most meaningful accomplishment (besides her kids, of course), is her consulting business, Amy Tobin & Company (formerly Taramy Enterprises). “I’ve built it into something that makes me both proud and happy,” says Amy. “I love working creatively with brands on food and lifestyle projects.” You can find her at the New Riff Distillery in Northern Kentucky, where she is the Creative and Culinary Director of the Event Center

Amy’s been sharing her passion for food, entertaining and living well on Q102 since 2005. Some “living well” tips she takes to heart? Exploring Cincinnati’s beautiful parks—particularly the trails in Sharon Woods, honing her talent for fishing and spending quality time with her husband Rob, son Sean and daughter Katie, plus their two cats, Bella and Tom (“Though Tom may actually be a dog. We’re not sure.”).
