    a successful housekeeper?

    Does it sound ok if i say like this:

    I will succeed both in my career and housekeeping.
    I will be not only a successful career woman but also a good housekeepr.

    Also, what does it mean by take in this sentence?

    Have you felt lonely( when you fell from a stardom?) it does take a lot of players like that.

    In US you are saying that you are doing well "keeping houses" - retain property after a divorce.

    Are you trying to say that you will succeed both on a professional and personal level?

    In BrE, a housekeeper is generally someone payed to look after a house; we'd use homemaker or housewife.
