How do you balance Life, Work and Kids?

There is no such thing as balance. Everything in life works like a Rubiks cube where we all have our own formula for a  perfect cube on our life look. Some people work more and spend less time with their kids and that’s perfect for them.

The trick is that you keep tweaking it until you feel your Rubiks cube is in the right color combination for your lifestyle. What I have found is not multitasking when trying to accomplish things helps tremendously. When I spend my time with my daughter, I am 100% invested in her in that moment.

When I spend time with my husband, 100% of my attention goes to him. When I work my business, 100% of my attention goes there. Multitasking does not work and everyone will be happier if you just jump into one thing at a time to create that “balance“.


What do you like to do in your FREE time?

The beauty of what we do in this business is create free time and one of my favorite things to do honestly is helping people succeed with this business, that gives me purpose. I also love being a wife and mother and a lot of my time goes to that.


If you had a day off (No Kids – No Nothing): What would you do?

Probably what most mothers would want to do, go shopping, get a massage, have a spa day, etc. I am proud of my ambition and how much I love working this business so I would still be working my business through it all because I can do everything from my phone, it doesn’t seem like work at all when you love what you do.


What advice would you give other moms?

Stop listening to the lies and the voices that say that you can’t have it all. I believe you absolutely can have the best marriage, great relationship with your kids, a physically fit body, a clean home, a successful business, anything you want!  You just have to be willing to prioritize your time and claim what you want! Matthew chapter 7:7 says “ask and you shall receive seek and you shall find knock and it shall be opened unto you”. I know that’s true.


What’s your most memorable “Why Me” moment?

I can’t think of a why me moment, I just own everything that happens to me and take responsibility. I know I am the only one in control of how I react, so dwelling on crappy situations doesn’t make me feel any better, so I don’t! I just ask what can I do next time to be better so this doesn’t happen again?

Honestly anytime somebody says I’m lucky or blessed to live this life that thought crosses my mind. But instead of asking why me, I know I should be asking why not me? Why not live a life of my dreams? Why not go for it? Why not shoot for the stars and see what happens? That’s how I’ve gotten “lucky.”


What are you most proud of?

I am so proud of myself for the example I am studying for my family, my friends and the people I associate with. I know my purpose is to help other people live better lives than I otherwise would have and I feel so fulfilled that this business allows me to do so.


How do you describe your parenting style?

I don’t even know how to begin. My little girl is taken care of, but if she does something wrong and knows it, I’m not afraid to give her a spank. She is well behaved and she also knows she is well loved. I’m just doing the best I can to raise my children in a way that will help them make the world a better place.


Kids say the “Darndest Things” – Like what?

My oldest is just 19 months old so right now the darndest things she says we have no idea what she’s saying, she’s really good at jabbering on about whatever it is, in whatever language it is.


What’s the hardest thing you’ve made it through or overcame?

I believe the hardest thing any of us ever go through is truly believing in ourselves that we can accomplish anything we set our mind to. And sometimes it’s not something that you just overcome once, most of the time it’s ongoing, and ongoing battle of increasing your self belief and self-confidence, it’s never ending.


What’s your “End Game” or Goal?

I’m a big dreamer and one of my biggest dreams and goals is to leave a legacy for my family, but in doing so I also know that I am going to be helping many people live a life just like mine. At the end of the day I just want to know that I lived up to my fullest potential, and there’s always room for more.
