Hey everyone! Welcome back to another episode of The Female Empowered Podcast. This episode is for all of you moms out there or if you are caretaking for other people.
Let me share with you how I found work-life balance.
I know how female CEOs feel when they are working and are juggling too much on their plate alongside their personal lives. I will share with you the things I choose to give attention to so that I can live the best life possible while my business also grows.
We are all feeling the same thing, I am not a unicorn, but I gave myself permission to do both the things that I love doing – being a mom and a wife, and being the best leader I can be for my business!
These are all from my experience so I hope that you learn a thing or two!
Let’s talk about:
Introduction to today’s topic
Who is this episode for
What my reality is
My take on being a working mom
We can have it all but we can’t have everything all at once
How I define “balance” as a female CEO and being a good mom
Balance is not about better time management, it’s about better boundary management
Family things that I say no to that I don’t feel guilty about anymore
Work things that I say no to that I don’t feel guilty about anymore
My mental health as something that is non-negotiable for me: How therapy helped me in different ways
Things that I always try make time for when it comes to my kids
How I teach my children how to honor their commitments
The reality: A lot of female business owners and working women don’t have the flexibility with their time
Asking for help helps
Before I end this episode, let me remind you that everything has a season and get as much help as you can. Don’t beat yourself to the ground and check what your workarounds are so you can be the best mom you want to be while working or running a business and not chasing the image of what motherhood and leadership should be!
