Describe a typical day?

Get woken up by dog and children, check emails and faxes, make US phone calls, drop children off and officially start work. Check requests, visit clients, back in the office in the afternoon, check on new research requests, talk to researchers about current work, talk to customer relations staff about possible clients. Pick children up, do some domestic stuff, put children to bed. Check emails and faxes and make European phone calls. Bed!
