Panelist Preview with Rashida McKenzie, Founder of Queen Bee Conceirge

If there's one thing Rashida and I have in common is that we both believe mom's do NOT have to do it all!


So when I thought of who would be an awesome panelist for our upcoming event, Designing The Work-Life That Works For Your Life, I thought of Rashida, because whether you're trying to lean all-the-way in or find a bit more balance in your day, knowing when and where you can outsource your responsibilities is important.


Buy your tickets to the event to learn more from and about Rashida!

Who’s Rashida? How would you describe yourself and what you do professionally?


I am a woman, wife, and mother who wants to be the best at all 3. Professionally, I am a Lifestyle Strategist who helps women executives, entrepreneurs and leaders with little ones to have career and a home life they love without sacrificing either.



How did you design your work-life to work for your life? What’s one way it totally works and one challenge?


Initially, I didn’t. After being on bed rest for 22 weeks, laid off one week before going back to work, and then launching and throwing myself into a business helping other moms with the many tasks on their plate, I ironically began to feel burnt out and had to reevaluate and redesign my work-life and prioritize. What works is the amount of flexibility that I have, the challenge is setting boundaries and being clear that flexibility doesn’t always mean availability.




How do you retain your sense of self in motherhood?


Date myself at least once a month. For example: If there is a movie I want to go and see that I know my husband isn’t into, I don’t drag him along, I’ll just go and see it.



Who is your style inspiration?


Gabrielle Union and her NY&CO collection. Takes you from parenting to professional and covers everything in between!




What do you do (guilt-free) for yourself?


Dream and Do daily. I am unapologetically becoming the woman and I want to be when I am 80.



One quote that perfectly describes your motherhood experience


Your ‘daughter’ will do what she sees, not what you say!
