Martha Stewart — one of America’s most successful businesswomen — tells Closer Weekly in an exclusive interview that at age 74, her passionate drive and focus on success is not waning, yet she has found ways to prioritize.
“My life is my work and my work is my life,” she admits to Closer of being a workaholic. “There is no balance. Everyone has to put up with that — including me!”

Fortunately, Martha finds ways to give her family, especially her grandkids — granddaughter Jude, 5, and grandson Truman, 4 — a prominent place on her packed schedule. “I’ve learned to prioritize my work and life on the same list,” she says.
When it comes to her grandchildren, Martha — who recently launched Martha & Marley Spoon, a meal-kit delivery service featuring recipes and helpful cooking tips — is a typical grandmother, bragging about their accomplishments. “They cook every single night. They know every ingredient that goes into their food, too,” she boasts to Closer.

But even as she gushes about what good palates her grandchildren possess, her mind is pulled back into work. “I may be getting an idea here — for children’s meal kits!” exclaims the homemaking maven.
And “sometimes things just take precedence,” such as spending mornings with Jude and Truman at her farm in Upstate New York. “It’s one of their favorite places,” she says.
