Selina Tobaccowala may not be a household name but she is an entrepreneur to know. Selena is the co-founder of the fitness app, Gixo (check it out in our Mother’s Day Gift Guide), which offers live and on-demand fitness classes with certified trainers. Selina spent 6.5 years as CTO at SurveyMonkey and during that time she had both of her kids (currently 8 and 5.5). She was so busy that she made no effort to exercise at all during that time. That inspired her latest venture, with a simple mission of getting people to move. Classes aren’t a huge time commitment – you can choose to take a quick 15 minute class or a full 60 minute challenge. There is amazing music and themed workouts like Boy Band Mania and Funk and R&B.
For Selina, she really wanted to find a way to use her background in tech to improve quality of life. So often we sit on our phones mindlessly – how can we use technology to get healthier?
Selina’s other passion is how we can make sure technology is a tool for our kids and not a hinderance so we asked her for some advice on how we can make sure we are using tech properly with our kids. Here’s what she shared:
We loved Selina’s advice. Any other ways you are managing technology with your kids?
