Amanda O’Reilly – Founder & President
My name is Amanda OReilly, I am a CEO (Chief Everything Officer) aka mom, lifestyle entrepreneur and I am also the Founder and President of Balance InStyle – My company’s superpower is giving people back the most precious commodity of all, TIME. I know first hand that balancing parenthood and business can be a challenge and that’s one of the reasons I am so passionate about the company that I have built.
I left the comfort of a paying job and I leaped into the land of the unknown and built Balance InStyle back in 2007. The idea originally came to me when I noticed there was a need in the marketplace for the kind of services that we offer while a friend was losing her battle to cancer. There wasn’t a one-stop shop where you could with one call, you could have all your needs met and your stress sucked away. There was no one to super cape into your life and rescue you from drowning.
As a corporate single mom, I realized that I was surely not the only one burning the candle at both ends. I run a business, wear far too many hats during the day, I rush home, make dinner every night, do the grocery shopping, pay the bills, host slumber parties, play chauffeur, doctor, teacher, maid, take the dog to the groomers, vet, do all the laundry, try to stay on top of my house, AND keep up and stay relevant with my almost 15 year old son who challenges me everyday, in every way. Calgon take me away!
Maybe you can relate? The Superwoman syndrome is real. Society has conditioned us to think that we need to juggle many glass balls, at once, without dropping them. If you can relate at all to what I am saying you are probably saying … what can I do? Sometimes it’s as simple as getting over our own perfectionist streak and realizing that we don’t need to do it all. Only Superwoman can do it all, and she isn’t real. I know right?!
Get some support, call us, look up resources in your area, outsource the mundane. Things that someone else can easily take off your plate and help you achieve more balance and freedom in your life. Give yourself permission to live and BE in place of always DOING. We are after all human BEings.
I also offer Executive Consulting to business leaders, corporate teams and small businesses who are ready for transformation. My team will audit and analyze your business to uncover the hidden thought and behaviour patterns that are holding back your growth and success. It’s so easy to get lost in the day-to-day that if we aren’t careful we lose the ability to focus on the big picture – the vision, mission and goals that guide us. Sometimes all we need is a second – trusted – set of eyes and hands to come in and help guide you back onto the right path. I’ve has spent decades working with clients implementing structures, policies, procedures, aligned visions, mission statements all while helping them take action towards their desired goals.
