Birchbox CEO Katia Beauchamp’s schedule is pretty jam-packed.

And that’s not just because she runs the beauty subscription company that she co-founded in 2010. Beauchamp is also the mother of three sons, including a newborn baby.

For her, balance isn’t about checking off tasks on her to-do list. “If you try to tackle everything, you’re not giving anything the attention it needs,” she told Business Insider. “Slowing down is a big part of what I think works.”

Here’s a look at a typical day in the life of the CEO:

Beauchamp typically rises around 5 a.m. to take care of her newborn baby. “I hang out with him for a little while,” she told Business Insider. “Sometimes I get to sleep a little more, if he’s nice to me.”

The whole family is up around 6:30 a.m. “I try to have breakfast with the boys,” she said. Beauchamp’s husband Greg and a nanny are on hand to help get her two older sons ready for school.

“I walk the boys to school every day,” she said. She’s typically in the office by nine o’clock. “I try to use the morning time to make sure that I’m prepared for what I need to get done.”
