MIAMI, USA (defend.ht) - In an article, "Supermoms share how they do it all" by the Miami Herald, Haitian-American mother of four (4) and businesswoman, Youri Mevs, was featured to discuss her work-life balancing act.
The Miami Herald Writer, Cindy Krischer, wrote:
Youri Mevs is managing shareholder of a 60-year-old private family conglomerate called WIN Group. Sheâs also CEO of a household that includes four daughters, ages 20 to 11. Earlier this week, Mevs, a Haitian American, found herself reviewing for a test with her youngest daughter in Miami in the morning, pitching one of her companyâs projects to a loan officer in Haiti in the afternoon and talking over a new development with her business partners in the evening.
For Mevs, the key to balance is knowing how and when to ask for help. She does this from her assistant, her sibling/business partners, her ex-husband and her children. Sheâs specific when she asks for help and has taught her kids to help her by deciding whatâs important for her to attend.
âThey have been the greatest source of support in helping me manage my time,â she says.
