Real Moms, Real Talk: Janeane Davis, President/CEO – James, Davis & Associates

Today’s RMRT spotlight is on Janeane Davis. I had the pleasure of connecting with this awesome lady through a dynamic group of women bloggers called Shades of Social Media that we are both a member of (check them out if you haven’t already). There was nothing but laughs and a good time when speaking with Janeane. So check out the interview and be sure to leave a comment for her and connect with her in the world of social media.

C: How long have you been married and how many kids do you have?

JANEANE: We have been married 22 years, it’ll be 23 years in March. Yes, I got married when I was a baby! We have four children, ages sixteen, nine, and five-year-old twins.

C: How do you manage to find the balance between family, work & life, amidst running your own business and blog?

JANEANE: It’s easier now that the twins are in kindergarten. But what I think it boils down to is basically getting on a schedule. If there’s anything I need to do for myself, I put off until the children are in school or asleep. A lot of my writing gets done at nine, ten o’clock at night because everybody is asleep. So that’s a time that I can do what I want to do without interruptions. Would I prefer to do it at three in the afternoon? Yes. But I have to go with the reality in our house. And the reality is that if I want to work uninterrupted, I have to wait for bedtime. I try to work my life around theirs instead of the reverse, otherwise we’ll all be miserable. I have learned that no matter what I want, I have to live in my real world which is different from a lot of other peoples’ worlds.

    Awesome interview. I can only imagine what that conversation was like LOL. I love that all of your kids have blogs. I’d love more info about how the five year olds do with that. I have a five year old and the child never. stops. talking. If I could get him to put some of those words somewhere else I can only imagine how much quieter my nights might be *dare to dream* LOL

      LOL. I really liked the idea of the kids…especially the 5-year-olds…having a blog. I will definitely start one for my son. I think it would be a fun thing for us to do together. 🙂

    “And the reality is that if I want to work uninterrupted, I have to wait for bedtime. I try to work my life around theirs instead of the reverse, otherwise we’ll all be miserable.” This is so powerful! This is my truth also. Our house is so full of life that I have to wait until every eye is closed before I can even focus.

      I hear you Uneeka! I’ve had to learn this lesson a few times. But it makes for a more peaceful mommy if I just focus all of my attention on the babies until they don’t need me to focus on them anymore 🙂
