Part 9 continues the series of posts taken from my interview by a PR student working on a course paper.
Is it an easy balance between your family and your business?
Yes, it is an easy balance between my family, my business and my other responsibility as a community college vice president.
First, I am childless by choice. I love children but never wanted any. Therefore, while my peers have to focus on children, I do not have to. My husband and I have several godchildren, nieces and nephews, but after we spend quality time with them, we simply return them to their parents. Others with children of their own do not have the luxury of doing this.
Second, my husband is very supportive and proud of my professional accomplishments.
Third, I am very organized and efficient. Therefore, what might take others a week to do might take me only a few days. These factors allow me to work hard but play hard as well. Because of this balance, I am able to relax during the weekends and take vacations every year.
How do you balance work and family?
