How She Does It by Rebecca O’Rourke

I often am asked how I manage my business and a young family and love sharing my tips.

~ Do what works for you and your family. There is no cookie cutter approach.

~ Get the right support and outsource time-consuming tasks such as cleaning and shopping. You can’t do it all! I use Lifestyle Elements Concierge and

~ Allow your husband or partner to share the load with you. My husband Dan is the most hands-on dad and an incredibly supportive husband.

~ Have a routine but be flexible and try and have a laugh when the wheels fall off.

~ Try and schedule one day a week when you hang out and do nothing but chill out as a family, couch, movies, outside, whatever works for R&R.

~ Be kind to yourself and know that it won’t be perfect all the time but tomorrow is a new day. If something isn’t working change it.

~ Get sleep (this can be tough with babies and heavy workloads) but try your best to go to bed early!
