Shelley Stone, CEO of tech company Conch, thrives on the fast, frenetic, Type A pace of her life, waking at 3:30 am for "me time" while multitasking on the treadmill, scheduling sex with her husband, power posing to rev up her adrenaline, and, when she can, squeezing in "quality time" with her two young children. It's a lot to ask of anyone, and while Shelley's career is flourishing, her husband Rafe is starting to chafe at the relentless pace.
