Balancing Work and Life


Being an entrepreneur with six kids can be a challenge, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Maintaining a work-life balance is definitely not an easy task, especially with 3 of my kids in business with me, but I have a few tips for anyone needing to balance their personal life and work life.

  1. Keep active! I exercise whenever I get a free moment. Some of my favorite workouts include running or something cardio related.
  2. Spend time with your family. I get to see my older children all the time at work, so it’s not so pressing to spend time with them over the weekend. I love taking my younger kids to the movies, a restaurant, or even just to hang out.
  3. Take it one step at a time. For me it’s always been to try to hit singles and doubles, and the home runs come on their own. Just try to get the logical next step and be prepared to pivot in the right direction to go from first base to second or third.
  4. Don’t talk about work every hour of every day. I’m in the office for 11 to 12 hours, but then I try to have some time with my friends and family for a meal or drinks, or just try to talk about something other than work. It’s important to get out of work mode even if it’s for only a few hours.

I love work, and I tend to go overboard when it comes to my work hours, but I will always be sure to make my family and friends a priority. Be sure to keep a good balance in your life!

Over 60 Years of Deliciousness


At Fatburger, we are proud to say that we’ve been doing things our own way since 1952. Because we make custom burgers one at a time, there a few things you will notice at every Fatburger. Every burger is grilled when you order it. We use only 100% USDA lean beef that is always fresh and never frozen. Our onion rings come from onions, not the freezer. Both our onion rings and fries are cooked in 100% cholesterol-free oil. Our shakes are made with real hand-scooped ice cream. Our famous chili is made with a secret blend of herbs and spices, so this means no generic burgers. Lastly, we pride ourselves in never having lame music!

I am proud to say that Fatburger has and always will be the same that it was 60 years ago. Cheers to 60 more years!
