Pop star turned businesswoman Rihanna has just gone through quite a busy year in her career. In 2019 alone, she released a 15-pound visual autobiography, expanded her widely successful Fenty beauty empire, and launched her bid in the world of luxury fashion. While not all working women can boast of the same achievements, they could still congratulate themselves for another year of a job well done and follow Rihanna’s example when it comes to striking a work-life balance.
In an Instagram post, the 31-year-old beauty mogul apologized to the co-workers, family members, and friends who she hasn’t gotten back to yet during the past months. She admitted that she found the year that was to be an ‘overwhelming’ one and that she’s still working on finding a balance between her personal life and work responsibilities. She ended the short message with a simple ‘brb’ (be right back).
This honest message is certainly a fantastic reminder for everyone else who is struggling with the same issue that even an accomplished celebrity like Rihanna puts importance on her personal well-being.
Juggling It All
This isn’t the first time that the businesswoman has shared about her professional life though. She’s previously talked about how she likes to make time to do seemingly simple things like going grocery shopping. She does this by incorporating ‘P’ days on her calendar. The ‘P’ stands for personal days, which she usually takes two to three days at a time to recover from her gruelling work schedule.
No Signs of Stopping
Despite these challenges though, the mogul doesn’t show any signs of stopping soon. Aside from her many business ventures, she’s reportedly working on an upcoming album. The much-awaited release would be her return to music after years of absence from the scene. The singer’s last album is ‘Anti’, which was released in 2016. Her ninth album was reportedly slated for a late 2019 release but didn’t pan out. Since then, fans have been constantly asking Rihanna about it on social media.
