The debate about work-life balance rages on, even for women in the highest levels of the workplace as seen this this week’s NYT piece “Elite Women Put a New Spin on an Old Debate”. Many of us have been there, done that, and, like the women in this article, we’ve had the experience to look back and give a perspective that goes beyond the theoretical. We’re all different, so there is no “answer” to this issue– but we’d like to hear your perspective. Care to share any real-life examples of how your handled it? Any advice that rings true for you or advice that makes you shake your head?
