The success of my empire depends on being able to take on many roles — mother, wife, businesswoman, and mentor. How do I do it all? Believe it or not, my secret is not to balance these duties. It’s to CHAMPION all of them!

In this day and age, more is expected of us than ever. We are supposed to have meaningful marriages, be perfect parents, and maintain booming businesses. 

Needless to say, that’s a lot of pressure! 

And even worse, no one is being honest about how to create and sustain an abundant life

Changing this narrative is one of my greatest goals. And this article will give you some tools to fulfill countless roles in your life — if you so choose. 

The first thing you need to realize is that “balance” should never be the objective… 

Dispel the “Work-life Balance” Myth

The truth is your role in your Empire will constantly change — and so will your priorities. 

As a consequence, clear communication with your family and inner circle about the bigger picture is important. This first critical step will grant you the freedom to pivot and change roles as needed. 

For example, I have always let my children know that my husband and I want to help billions of people. Additionally, I made it clear that by allowing us to go on business trips, they were helping those people too. 

Notice the difference? 

Laying out my massive mission for my children to see makes it easier to accomplish because the girls feel part of the empire

Now, on the other hand, I have the same kind of conversations with my business team. So when one of my daughters has a gymnastics competition or pageant, I can be fully present as her mom and #1 fan

The Secret to Controlling Multiple Roles

At the end of the day, you need to recognize what needs your full attention at what time

My key to having it all is to be 100% present at whatever needs to be the top priority — at that moment. 

In my experience, I have found that to be the best at all the roles I hold is to take them on one at a time. That translates to prioritizing, planning, communication, and action

If you need a little more guidance, I go into deeper detail on strengthening all these aspects in my book, “Build an Empire: How to Have it All.” 

Until then, be the best at ALL of your roles and build an empire,
