Tamika M. Johnson is an Attorney, Author, Entrepreneur, Wife, Mother, Daughter, and friend, and like so many other entrepreneurs and high-achieving professionals, she juggles a lot.
In doing all that she does professionally and personally, Tamika knows that individuals who perform at a high level indefinitely and for years can become burned out and have breakdowns. Additionally, as an attorney who has represented mental health patients for 10 years, she knows that it doesn’t matter how many degrees you have, how much money you have, or how successful you are, we are all subject to having a mental health crisis.
Tamika personally experienced wearing that “Superwoman Cape” taking on multiple roles and responsibilities at the expense of prioritizing her own needs. Continually trying to be everything to everyone all the time results in being overwhelmed, anxiety, loneliness, depression, and manifests itself physically by causing hair loss, high blood pressure, increased sugar levels, ulcers, heart attacks, strokes, and more. Experiencing several of those ailments in her own life Tamika had to make some changes and become INTENTIONAL about achieving a healthy work-life balance.
Finding and maintaining this balance is easier said than done, but it is doable and simpler than many of us make it out to be.
As a Work-Life Balance Speaker, Tamika shares with clients and audiences how to intentionally achieve a professional and personal balance that addresses work, career, business, self-care, health, rest, and relationships, as well as strategically utilizing FMLA to allow professionals to reset before a tragedy occurs either mentally, physically, or emotionally.
Originally from Connecticut, Tamika received her B.A. from The University of Georgia and her J.D. from Southern University Law Center. She has been a licensed attorney in Georgia for over 15 years, primarily practicing in the areas of Real Estate, Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, and Uncontested Probates. Tamika is married with 3 children and enjoys cooking, reading, and sometimes nothing at all.
