The Dream Turns to a Nightmare:

The central conflict of domestic life right now isn\’t men versus women or mothers versus fathers; it\’s the family against money.

Achieving the elusive \”work-life balance\” can often feel like an impossible goal, especially for people who strive to give everything 100%. In today\’s \”do more with less\” competitive reality, how can we manage careers and families, and feel satisfied with both?


The main problem with working from home is everyone\’s expectations.

  • your expectations* your family and friends expectations* your clients\’/ employer\’s expectations.

However, since more and more people have switched to working at home, there are still some wrinkles to be ironed out with respect to the general public\’s expectations.

Apple has been slowly restoring their Developer Center, and today the company has sent out an email update to developers regarding the restorations to take place this week:

We sincerely appreciate your patience as we work to bring our developer program services back online, and we want to give you an update on our progress. The majority of our developer services are currently online, including Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles, Dev Centers, software downloads, Videos, Apple Developer Forums, iTunes Connect, Bug Reporter, App Store Resource Center, and access to pre-release documentation.

We plan to reinstate most of the remaining services this week: Xcode automatic configuration as well as access to license agreements, TSIs, program enrollments, and renewals in Member Center. You can check the availability of these systems on our status page.

As a reminder, if your membership was set to expire during this downtime, it has been extended and your apps will remain on the App Store and Mac App Store.

We apologize for the significant inconvenience that our downtime has caused and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you need any assistance.
