The ladies are not afraid to use their platform to make boss moves. Many of them have multiple areas of interests to build their brands. One of the positive moments on the show is how they constantly teach their children, especially the daughters, how to make boss moves instead of how to throw wine in someone’s face.
Lisa’s seven year old daughter, Amira, said she wants to own her own business too. A doll business – a suitable dream for a seven year old. “My daughter is a mini me and watching mommy always in boss mode makes her a little mini boss.” Lisa discusses entrepreneurship and pricing her dolls correctly in the market.
Dr. Heavenly has her daughter in tow often so she can observe how she is able to run a successful dental practice, mentoring young women, being a relationship expert and now her newest venture – online dating. Dr. Heavenly is over the moon with this new project, but her hubby believes her plate was already full and she needs to remove one or more of these side items.
Dr. Heavenly claims to be doing all of this and still making it home by five to be with her husband and kids. If she was able to do all of this from eight to five, does he truly have reason to complain? Or does he just prefer a housewife? Or does the issue fall on Dr. Heavenly? Is she taking on all these projects out of fear?
“My mama always taught me to always have more than one form of income,” she says to her husband, Dr. Damon, “I can’t depend on you…I will always have my own.” Dr. Damon calmly expresses his side. “You need to spend time with the family and you’re doing too much. Whether you think you are or not. Structure your schedule so you’re here and not always doing something.”
She feels like she takes care of everything: him, the kids, work and home. He feels his request isn’t too unreasonable for her to just scale back a bit. Does he have a valid point or is he stuck in the traditional mind frame that the woman should be home taking care of the domestic duties. Can a woman truly have it all? If Dr. Heavenly doesn’t focus on the family will she create a divide and resentment?
Instead of worrying about her own career and potential marital issue, Dr. Heavenly chooses to pass judgment on Jill and Dr. John’s marriage and business structure. Dr. John is a plastic surgeon and Jill is a lawyer in his practice for the last four years. She doesn’t understand why Jill would want to work for her husband instead of having her own firm. Jill and Dr. John appeared to take offense to her opposition.
“I think women who work for their husbands are probably the type of women that cannot make it in the real workforce,” Dr. Heavenly sates. “So they kinda hide behind their husbands…in order to say they have something they can do but really they’re just playing at their husband’s job.” Ouch.
