It’s hard to imagine Steph Adams spending a day at home working in her PJs, but the self-deprecating author, art director and mum knows all too well about the struggles working mums' face...
So how does she juggle the ever elusive balance of maintaining a successful career alongside caring for her two-year-old son Bailey? “I don’t always. Sometimes it’s a real struggle. If it looks like it’s going to be one of those days, I just give in and I don’t try and do it all. If Bailey needs my full attention, I will then just catch up on work at another time, even if it means through the night or from 5am when Bailey is asleep.” Read on to see how the Perth-born Singapore-based author of Good to Glow and The Game Changers; Success Secrets from 40 Women at the Top prioritises health, family time and date nights with her husband on top of running her inspiring blog and ever-growing social media presence.

What’s a typical morning like in your household?
My husband and I try to take a morning walk at around 7am most days with our son. It’s a nice way to spend time together and we walk to our local coffee shop and back again. Saturday mornings my husband and I will do a bootcamp class together. I will also make a green smoothie before I sit down to start my emails and work.
