Can Women Have It All?
November 26th 2013
In this video, I answer a question posed by many fans about responsibility when it comes to balancing a career and a family. More specifically, can a woman ‘have it all’? Much has been said about the topic and many women have been told that they can’t. I’m here to tell you that you can. During the years that my children were young, I was trying to hone my skills as a lawyer and commute back and forth to work every day, and then come home and prepare dinner and had no household help. The men of my generation helped support the family, but didn't provide the type of hands-on, shared childcare I see in marriages today. If you wanted to succeed, you had to break a sweat in order to do so. I did have a certain amount of guilt, but when I look back at my life today as a whole person, I think it’s about the life imprint you make. It’s about being responsible in all aspects of your life. What have you learned on your journey? Any stories to share?
Judy says…if you want to ‘have it all’, you have to break a sweat to get it and take care of yourself along the way.
