Juggling love, life, and family! It’s a lot – period. Women manage so much daily. How do you manage it all?
Tamika shares her journey and how she now manages it all. From being a single mother to marriage and having children later in life.
Attorney, business owner, wife, and mother. Listen to her story and be encouraged.
Tamika Michelle Johnson is an Attorney, Magazine Publisher, CEO of a matchmaking agency, Host of 2 Weekly shows, Wife, Mother, Daughter, and friend, and like so many other high-achieving professionals, she juggles a lot.
In doing all that she does both professionally and personally, Tamika is aware of the fact that individuals who perform at a high level indefinitely and for years at a time, can become burned out or have breakdowns. Additionally, as an attorney who has represented mental health patients for 10 years, she knows that many professionals are closer to breakdowns than they
know or want to admit.
Personally, Tamika became a single mother at 25 years old, and after she started practicing law, she found herself involved in an unhealthy relationship. The stress of that relationship almost destroyed her. So, after finally ending her unhealthy 10-year relationship at 40 years old, transforming her approach to relationships, Tamika married her current husband soon thereafter. While her marriage is great, within the last 4 years, Tamika also had 5 pregnancies, 3 miscarriages, and 2 children, all in her 40’s. A pandemic, the loss of both her father and her husband’s father within 3 months of one another, becoming caretakers of her mother-in-law all while raising 2 young children is nothing short of challenging.
On the other hand though, Tamika missed having a career, so she decided to ease back into working as an attorney again as well as embarking upon several other ventures in which she is very passionate. But initially, it was not easy balancing all of that.
Tamika knew that the continual stress and overwhelm not only results in anxiety, insecurity, and depression, but it also manifests itself physically by causing hair loss, high blood pressure, increased sugar levels, ulcers, heart attacks, strokes, and more. So, she had to make some changes and become INTENTIONAL about achieving a healthy work-life balance.
On a weekly basis, Tamika shares with professionals that we will always have responsibilities, but it is vital that we balance those responsibilities with other activities, excitement, hobbies, time with family and friends, and most importantly peace.
To continue to perform at an optimal level in whatever it is that we do, we have to master a work-life balance. After implementing her own strategies to attain this balance, Tamika now assists other power professionals to achieve their own healthy work-life balance.
Finding and maintaining this balance is easier said than done, but it is doable and simpler than many of us we make it out to be.
As a Work-Life Strategist, Tamika shares with clients and audiences how to intentionally achieve a professional and personal balance that addresses work, career, business, self-care, health, rest, and relationships, as well as strategically utilizing certain benefits which will allows professionals to reset before a tragedy occurs either mentally, physically, or emotionally.
So, if you’re ready to master yours and your audiences work-life balance, then be sure to schedule a call to book Tamika for your next amazing event, conference, or workshop!
