- Any advice you’d like to share to young professional women starting a family?
Read “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg. Among other great advice to professional women, she discusses abandoning the myth of “having it all”, referring to the work/family balance that so many women struggle with. Her perspective influenced my decision and mindset to have a family while pursuing my professional goals.
