We recently had Jamie O’Banion on podcast & I wanted to share with you some of her tips on the blog. Because, as I always say, I want this blog to be a resource for you.
If you haven’t heard of Jamie O’Banion, she is the founder and CEO of the company BeautyBio, a clean skin care company whose mission is up to “Get the most powerful ingredients and combine them with effective natural extracts to get the best clinically formulated skin care collection.” They are all about “putting the power of work results into the office in the palm of your hand. “
Not only is Jamie a complete BOSS, she is both a wife and a mother, so who gives us better advice on life lessons, work / life and balance ?! Plus, the dead one is beautiful.
Jamie shares so many good podcast tips, but here’s a little peek at some of her best tips you need to know.
5 tips from Jamie O’Banion on balancing work and family
5 tips from Jamie O’Banion:
♡ on priorities and risk
Tthere is no scenario here in which you can achieve a certain level of size in what you implement if you are not willing to tolerate some risk. When everything is said and taken away, we carry our memories and experiences with us. It’s nice when there’s an outcome that’s monetary, and that’s great. But there is a victory. There are losses. If you’re not, at least for me, grounded in things that really matter, you’ll blow like a leaf in the wind. Because I have those priorities in that order of faith and family, and then work, when it’s good, and it’s solid, and there it is, everything else can be gradual.
♡ about happiness in your business
For example, if you start a cooking business, and in your mind you thought it would be decorating cookies all day, then you realize that you are actually managing people, scheduling, calculating salaries, etc., you may not be lucky you thought you would get out of it.
What is your goal with that? Is your goal to franchise it? Is your goal that you just love being in the kitchen? I’ve seen many entrepreneurs follow their passion, but then burn out as they start to go, “Wait a minute. I actually enjoy baking, but not necessarily running the business part. “
If you don’t have an inner passion and aren’t committed to what you’re doing, there’s no outcome that will give you the gas to keep going.
♡ scheduling time with family
If you would look at my calendar, I program on time with my kids and husband as if it’s a board meeting, because if you’re not intentional with your time, you’ll always take another meeting, extend another 15 minutes. That’s when things start to squash what your priorities are, and I find that’s where I start to feel not very great on the inside. You have to be very thoughtful with the people you love.
♡ on mom’s fault
It shows that you have your heart and priorities in the right place. I believe they all have different bandwidths. If you’re someone who has that passion in you and you feel like you’re a better mother, a better wife when you can get that way out, whatever it looks like, then that’s awful.
The balance is completely personal. You have to define it, but it’s okay if one day you feel like you’re squeezing it at work and sometimes at home. I think as long as you’re in that zone. When I’m in the ‘mom zone’, I’m fully present with my kids.

Again, scheduling shared time. A mutual respect of each other’s life calendar and try to consider your relationship as an X frame relationship. Two solid pillars connected by a middle bar.
