I have five children and I own three businesses. One question I’m asked frequently is ‘How do you do it all?’.
I wanted to let you know that – I don’t. I have a fantastic team that supports me. When we begin in business, we all start off thinking we have to do everything on our own but it’s not the case.
One thing I have learnt through my extensive experience over the past 10 years of being in business and even before that in the corporate world – you can’t do it all.
In life there is both masculinine and feminine energy. One cannot exist without the other.
It can be really difficult to navigate these energy polarities because of societal norms. This goes for women in business, when stepping into an entrepreneurial role or any role that is outside of social constructs.
My husband is a stay at home Dad and I am the breadwinner, I have seen it break people’s brains.
It took so much strength for me to break out of the mould for what is inherently feminine or motherly.
But I want you to remember that you don’t have to always be both masculine and feminine at the same time, you can outsource roles to someone else.
If you’re in business and you’re struggling to do every single task, it’s OK to ask for help and assign them to someone.
Try and ask yourself, ‘what is one thing that I can do today to reach my goal?’ and, remember, you can ask for support!
It’s not all on you.
