Now you are asking the same question everyone asks me. How do you balance? How do you manage to own a business, run a blog and be a mommy? Well, I am writing this at 12:24am and I did finally get to the gym at 7am today after months of not being there. My life is not easy and it is not for everyone. However, I love what I do and I love my son. I am not going to lie I have struggled internally a lot with having a passion and drive and being a MOM. I have always turned to my other working mom and dad friends when I needed encouragement. My mom was an entrepreneur as well and she showed me that you can do it all and that your time with your children is special always whether you are working or not. I cherish my morning and evening times with Dylan and my weekends are even more special now. Therefore, to add more to my running to do list I decided to create a show with the incredible team at Mouth Media Network. I recruited co-host Michelle Park so we could give you an inside look at the lives of women balancing high-powered careers and motherhood. We are also interviewing some amazing fathers (such as my BFF actor Ike Barinholtz) to give their perspective as well. Although I do not have many hours in the day I really felt because I am asked how do I do it almost every day you would find it helpful to hear from others as well. Their stories are fascinating and every day I am learning too.
