Earlier this year, I had a quick conversation with friend and client Yvonne Hogenes while at the WOW (women of worth) Conference in Vernon.
Yvonne is a very busy business owner who provided some great tips on time management.
Yvonne wears many hats and wasting time is not an option for her.
20 years ago Yvonne opened Malarys Fashion Networking Cloverdale.
She’s thoroughly enjoyed evolving her business as the industry grew.
For 15 years now she has designed custom fitted bras she then has manufactured and distributed all throughout Canada and the US!
Then 7 years ago she began her journey in making smart, shape tech/apparel with Firma Energywear.
This product is sold in Canada and all over the US.
So how does she do it?

Her team is important and then comes delegation.
Yvonne has learned to offer autonomy and trusts those she delegates to.
She has learned the hard way that balance is important since she has burnt out multiple times. Some quick tips she shared were:
- Learn to say no!
- Learn to filter out what is important from what isn’t.
- Hire your weaknesses to offset what you’re good at with what you’re not.
- When in control mode you’re not doing anyone any service.
- Get over thinking that no one can do it as good as you can.
Yvonne agrees the key to balance is to let go at times and trust.
I want to really thank Yvonne for sharing her insights with me (and you) and if you’re looking to get a hold of Yvonne the easiest way to find her is at Malarys.com
