Let’s kick off Monday afternoon with some real Mommy time talk.
What are your thoughts on privileged women talking about motherhood, balance and climbing the corporate ladder?
According to Marissa Mayer (Yahoo) and Sherry Sandberg (Facebook), we are selling selves short and can do more to win. True, but not that simple.
It’s real easy to offer advice when you have not walked in most women shoes.
Although I agree that women can have it all, I believe that happens in stages. Something will suffer eventually– perhaps your marriage, children, health, self-esteem or S-E-L-F. I’ve made short-term career sacrifices for the good of my team (family) and that was once a hard pill to swallow.
Women should not have to apologize for wanting to remix the manner in which they work and contribute to society. Women are not built like men and that’s okay.
