They are entrepreneurs, creating and operating their own businesses. They are ambassadors, politicians, philanthropists.
What happens as women take on more and more career responsibilities outside the home?
Author Mireille Guiliano, in the introduction to her book, “Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire,” says “A sweeping ‘women’s issue’ is achieving a healthy balance of work life with ‘life’ life.” She asks, “What is the point of being a successful businesswoman if you are not happy?” She goes on to say “We don’t work in a vacuum. Our work is a part of the rest of our lives.”
Can a woman have it all? Can she achieve a work-life balance that actually works? The answer is a resounding, “Yes, she can.” But she can’t do it alone. She needs friends, supporters, networking groups, and family.
