Today we have to honor to feature the awesome JeeYoung in “I Don´t Know How She Does It”. JeeYoung is a fulltime working mom of two boys and in her free time (wait, which free time?) she runs the very successful Simply + Every. I met JeeYoung through one of the blogger networks I am part of and I am so impressed by how fast she grew her blog but especially by how supportive she is by helping other bloggers or working moms with any advice she can give them. Check out what her secret is to get all of that done!
Q: Please introduce yourself, why do you think people around you might think “I don´t know how she does it”?
A: Hi! I’m a working (at home) mom of two lil boys, hailing from the ‘burbs of Detroit, MI. I blog in my spare time and I get asked all the time about how I maintain our house, career, the boys, and blogging!
Q: What does your typical weekday look like?
A: I work from my home office after my oldest goes to preschool and my mom takes my baby for the day. I spend some time eating bfast with the kids in the morning and getting some blog stuff done sometimes. Then my office day starts! Meetings, writing, conference calls, etc. Then I run around like crazy trying to get the kids home, dinner on the table, and doing our nightly routine for the kids. I rotate between blogging and spending QT with my husband at night!
Q: What is your secret to get it all done?
A: No secret, just time management and prioritization. Most days, my house is a mess, there’s laundry to folded, and toys to be put away. All that goes by the wayside when I’m trying to meet client deadlines at work or with the blog!
Q: What do you do when you feel like you´re close to a break down?
A: I talk to my husband, I binge watch shows, or sleep it off. I would say go to the gym, but I haven’t done that in a few months. Haha.
Q: What is your guilty pleasure?
A: Ice cream!!!!!!
Q: What is your favourite activity with your boys?
A: Playing outside! Or baking and doing art projects!
Q: What would be your advice for other busy moms to get the most out of their day?
A: Don’t feel guilty about taking a break for yourself! Don’t feel guilty if something doesn’t get done. Prioritization is so key to maintaining peace and balance. Not everything will get done every day, and that is OK!
Q: What else do we need to know about you?
A: I’m a fun loving, wanderlust who drinks lots of coffee to get through the daily grind. I love my
family, friends, and Jesus fiercely. My happiness comes from serving others. I love to connect with people and my empathy tank is on overload most days. My loyalty knows no bounds once you’re in my inner circle. Although, I think I’ve become socially awkward as I age, haha. I’m a crazy person who likes to be doing lots of things. I thrive under pressure and in my daily chaos. Oh, I love the color yellow, shoes, Korean food, and sushi.
