Amber and Stephanie, owner of Active Voice Communications, get together for an honest conversation about if it is possible for working moms to have it all.
Can we have it all? The perfect family. A successful business. Brilliant and well-behaved kids. A blooming career. A spot clean house. The cars. The dog. Is it possible for women today to have it all?
What’s next? Changing the narrative: The pursuit of "it all" is a personal choice. And it's important to acknowledge that everyone's ALL is different. Getting to all means changing the narrative and determining what ALL is to you. Redefining balance.
Where does family fit in when compared to your career or other responsibilities? Ensure your priorities align with your actions. Making adjustment.
Having it all right now vs later. Navigating through the various stages of ALL. Figuring out what you want right now and adjusting.
