Have it all and make it work? Challenge accepted!
There’s one thing about the whole women and work thing that gets my goat: it’s the constant message we receive from the media, and from society as a whole, that we can’t have it all.

I believe women can have it all, and that instead of limiting ourselves to what others say is possible, we should just decide for ourselves the life we want to live and then get on with the business of making it happen.
If you want the career, the family and the lifestyle, the way to make it happen is to prepare and train to be a working parent before your kids come along.

It is the blueprint for gaining the clarity, capability and confidence to have it all and make it work.
