Caroline, founder of the ceramic brand Three Seven, Jonas, model, their daughter, Muse, aged 3, and Wynckles, their faithful dog
How do you cope with the coexisting lives of Muse and Three Seven? — C.: Pretty well. I work hard, but as it’s my company, I work the hours that I choose. As a model, Jonas travels a lot, but looks after Muse whenever he’s here. Even so, I must admit that I always have the impression of not having enough time for everything! Life and happiness depend on a sense of balance. I can’ t imagine my life without my child just as I can’t imagine it without my work. They’ re inseparable: if my family’ s fine, I’ m fine; if my work’ s fine, I’m fine. One has to move forward on both fronts at the same time! Do you have any tips for keeping one’s head above water? — My advice is to keep a sense of priorities and know when to take a step back if things are going too fast. Every morning, I spend a couple of minutes thinking about all that I have: a close family; a superman of a husband, who’s loving and ready to listen; a healthy, three-year-old poppet of a daughter; and how lucky I am to be pregnant for a second time… Worries about work are instantly put into perspective. What’s the key to maintaining the balance? — Never give up. I think we are a generation who always feels there’s not enough time. I refuse to capitulate on certain things on the pretext of being a working parent.
