Mikael and Julia, co-founders of the 100% natural brand of meals for babies Good Goût, and their children, Inès, aged 9, Louis, 7, Anouk, 5, and Selma, 18 months
How do you reconcile your professional life with your private life? — M.: Pretty well, thanks to our quasi-military-style organization policy! With four children, it’s hard to improvise… Julia leaves early in the morning in the car to be at Good Goût in the eighth arrondissement of Paris in a quarter of an hour. I get breakfast for the children and take the train at 8.15am. We get back home in the evening around 7pm or 8pm for dinner. In the meantime, Amanda, our wonderful 24-yearold American au pair takes over. She’s been saving our lives for the past year. Julia is also home on Wednesday afternoons. What’s your secret for maintaining the balance? — M: It all boils down to organization. But then we also practise sport, do some gardening to clear our heads and, above all, have an aperitif together just the two of us every evening… hence the sport to compensate and clean out our system!
