Its hard balancing running a business with being a great mum. Sienna loves Madame Flavour. She loves the tea, loves the team, loves coming to Sri Lanka and into the office. In fact we are plotting a new brand – called Miss Sienna. What she doesn’t love is mummy on the phone. Mummy on the computer.
There was a time there where I would sneak off to check my mail and then hear her voice ‘Mummy it doesn’t take that long to go to the toilet’ And I felt terrible. Being pulled in different directions is not unique to me. It’s the nature of being a woman. We are balancing family, work, friends, ourselves – trying to do a great job everywhere. I’ve realized being able to set boundaries, to focus on what matters to me; and to say clearly yes and no are the only ways I can give energy to my competing priorities.
How do you maintain balance in your life?
