“Circumstances don’t define me, I define my circumstances.” ~Beate Chelette In my recent article about masculine (alpha) women, I described how women can get caught between needing to be tough and sharp at work, and soft and nurturing at home.

Men Don’t Know, So Stop Pretending

0

I am so tired of men telling me about work-life balance for women. You don’t know. Stop talking about it. I’ve had this discussion over and over again for the past seven years, and it’s the reason I developed The Women’s Code. In theory, men and women experience the same issues when trying to find [...] The post Men Don't Know, So Stop Pretending appeared first on The Women's Code. … [Read more...]

Selfishness Doesn’t Work

0

There has been a lot of talk going around about the Pendulum that has swung to the other side of business. In other words, over and done are the days of the lone alpha CEO who rules his kingdom for maximum profit.

How Women Can Make It To The Top

I read an article today about the famous UCLA Anderson School of Management. The article was featured in Businessweek and takes an uncomfortable look at the difficulties women face to get to the top and be compensated fairly. Sure, that’s nothing new. But the surprising information is that women are leaving their positions at Anderson [...] The post How Women Can Make It To The Top appeared first on The Women's Code. … [Read more...]

I Have It Harder Than You Do

A recent announcement about motherhood from Gwyneth Paltrow set off a media frenzy. She made a comment that a working actress has it harder than a 9-5 mom.
