I’ve read about men and women who want a $500,000 per year career knowing that means 70-hour weeks, Saturday meetings, and Sunday email. My first thought is, “Yes! Go for it!” Then they tell me they also want to be the “Best mom/dad ever.”
There’s a lady online who got in a lot of trouble by telling other women that they cannot have both. She says that the big career dream conflicts with the best mom dream.
I don’t really want to get in a lot of trouble with every woman on the planet, so I just ask how are you dealing with conflicting dreams?
