Stepping up, burning out: the sacrifice
of the executive woman - #029


Today, we are talking about the sacrifices of the executive woman, and I am teaching you how to stop making the sacrifices that leave you feeling queasy inside.

I have always been interested in the standards and ideals that seem to only apply to women in positions of power. Women who pursue high-power careers are often viewed as greedy, as “wanting it all,” and it’s assumed that other parts of our lives must be in disarray to account for our professional success. Sometimes, that’s true. There are many executives (men and women!) whose personal lives deteriorate at the same rate their careers grow.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. We don’t have to make sacrifices to succeed. All that’s needed is a mindset shift.

That’s right; we can change the narrative of the female executive from a one-dimensional, unfulfilled husk to one of a woman who is thriving.
