We had the good fortune of connecting with Cynthia Mbangue and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cynthia, how has your perspective on work-life balance evolved over time?
Building a successful business is hard work. There were so many times in the past that as the business owner, I’ve had to handle operations on my own which absolutely took away from my home balance. On the other hand, too much attention off of the business would effect the timing in which things would get done adequately.

Over time I’ve learned that in order to remain successful, I had to implement a team that I could delegate operations to and also automate many systems of operations to make day-to-day life simple on all of us. By making these changes, I found that I could not only keep my personal life in order, but I could also focus less on the business without the stress of, “will it be okay?” I’m much happier knowing my staff is well trained and versed in their roles and that the company operates on its own!

What should our readers know about your business?
I own Cyn’s Play Place Childcare Agency & Learning Center. This company has come such a long way! I am most proud of the fact that we’ve made it this far and remain a household name brand for many of our clients and the community.

As an owner, I’ve learned that it’s okay to make tough decisions and changes to ensure a productive program. The key has been putting faces in our brand who represent the company and its core values and uphold our standards to the highest level. Each day I lead with integrity and honesty which reflects on our staff.

It has not always been an easy road and I’m grateful for that as well. Developing a childcare brand can be difficult, creating one that covers almost all areas is even harder. What makes me happy everyday is having the confidence in knowing Cyn’s Play Place is a brand that offers convenience for families in the comfort of their own homes as well as a learning center that brings together amazing teachers & students who will grow into future leaders.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I give all praises to The Most High, my husband, close friends, mentors, and business associates whom have always pushed me to my fullest potential.
