Managing Screen Time: Family and Business Insights
Kim Anenberg Cavallo is the founder and CEO of lilspace , a company that elevates human connection in the digital age. Through phone-free wellness lounges at live events and an unplugged timer app, lilspace is able to make a positive social impact with the incentive to Unplug for a Cause™. Her 25 years experience raising money for nonprofit organizations, event planning community building, brings Kim’s work to the intersection of digital wellness, social action and the music industry. In addition to building lilspace, Kim serves as the National Day of Unplugging and was the co-founder of the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival. Growing up with a Mom who was a therapist, Kim experienced the incredible power of relationships and became concerned when technology was clearly interfering with our human to human connections. Her dedication to protecting relationships and the creation of her company is Kim’s way to honor her mother, Jane Anenberg, who died in 2012.
Kim Cavallo first became aware of the problem that mobile devices presented when she found herself in the bathroom of a yoga studio reading her emails instead of pressing her hands in down dog. In between anxious impulses to check her phone, the idea for lilspace was born. With her 25 years experience raising money and connecting people to non-profit causes, Kim began to focus on how to encourage those around her to put away their phones and be in the moment. Lilspace is positioned at the center of mindfulness and social impact, developing mutually beneficial, strategic partnerships between businesses and non-profit organizations. When Kim puts away her phone, she loves to spend time with her husband + 2 adult sons, doing yoga and traveling.
