Women and Children and Marriage and Success

Laura Vanderkam, a blogger at The Huffington Post, recently wrote about women who are successful in their careers despite being married and having children. And she refers most particularly to those women who did not wait to have the children in order for the career to flourish first.

She writes about those women who had the children in their twenties and then went on to grow in their professions and become successful without neglecting one or the other, and without driving themselves or their family crazy at the same time.

It's an inspirational article, and I hope you will take the time to read it.

The Little Secret of Women Who Have it All


  1. I've read Laura's article and must recommend it to everyone as well.

    There is so much to be said for combining work and family.

    Our children need to see us out there in the world doing, being, becoming, fighting, struggling, making things happen. That's what life is all about.

    I was raised to believe that staying home with my kids was the only option. However, once I was a mother I was struck by the fact that I didn't want my children to think that was THEIR only option.

    By combining work and family I think I am giving my children a close up look at how to juggle all the things that come at us in life AND still maintain a good, positive attitude, patience, kindness etc.

    Thank you for bringing that article to our attention, Gabriella!

  2. You're so right, and that is why you are such a role model for women of all ages, a "work of art in progress", you might say.

    Congratulations on consistently working towards being all you can potentially be...check out the post two days after this one about Abraham Maslow and self-actualizers.
