We had the good fortune of connecting with Aimee Piller and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Aimee, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
Work life balance is very important and often hard to manage as a business owner. I always have the business at the forefront of my mind, which can make it hard to turn off and focus on personal care. It is important to know activities that you need to keep your own bucket full. For me it is working out. I always make sure to block off time each day for a workout. I have also learned that I need to schedule time for myself. If I an intentional about taking time for my own care, I am a happier person and better able to services my employees and customers. During my scheduled leisure time, I do not do any work and focus on refiling my own bucket.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I own and operate Piller Child Development, a pediatric therapy company with multiple locations in the Phoenix valley. We work hard to ensure children receive high quality therapy services to help them succeed and excel in life. We work with children with various needs such as autism spectrum disorder, developmental delays, cerebral palsy, or other motor difficulties. Our specialty area is sensory integration. This treatment helps children with sensory processing differences to process sensory input better and increase their participation in daily tasks. Starting and growing the business I have had to overcome many challenges. There are several barrier to therapy practice and learning to persevere is the most important quality that leads to success. I always keep the children at the focus and that drives every decision I make as a business owner. This helps keep me focused and successful in an ever changing healthcare environment.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them hiking up South Mountain. It has one of the best views of the city. I love to take visitors to the Stockyards for a great meal and a taste of the old west.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband is always my biggest supporter. He keeps me focused and helps me work through the day to day issues that arise. He is the one who fills my bucket and rejuvenates me each day so I can be ready for any challenge I may encounter.
