Work seems to be very important to Drummond. She takes her role seriously and makes sure to incorporate work into her daily schedule. In her interview with House Beautiful, Drummond spoke about her life and approach to work. She told the publication that if your job is your passion, it never ends. “If you care about your business, it’s 24/7,” Drummond said. “You don’t leave the office, it’s in bed with you, it gets up with you. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

In her House Beautiful Interview, Drummond says being an entrepreneur requires sacrificing some of your time–even if you’re on vacation. “If you have your own business, expect to stay committed and involved, day in, and day out, even when you’re on vacation,” said Drummond. She also told the magazine she has a tough time remembering the last time she didn’t go an entire day without doing something work related.

Ree Drummond says she and Ladd are too tired to do this 1 thing

With more stars getting their own shows and eventually moving on to start a network, like Chip and Joanna Gaines, some fans wonder if that’s the next step for Drummond. In an interview with USA Today, Drummond says that won’t be her next career move. She has a very good reason for not pursuing a network opportunity. Drummond says she and Ladd just don’t have the energy left to follow in the Gaines footsteps and take over television. “That’s where our paths will diverge; I think my husband and I are too tired for that,” Drummond told the publication.
