Feminine is the new balance

Are you sick and tired of talking about work life balance? Many have tried it and failed. Most think it doesn’t exist. Some have coined the term work life integration or work life blend.

I have recently started writing a career advice column for Women’s Agenda, the online destination for professional women. It’s called Ask Megan and each Tuesday I answer a question someone has sent in (please send in questions to [email protected], I would love to answer them for you). It is week 5 and there have been questions on leadership, career management, boundaries and a lot of questions on the age old problem most of us deal with – balance. As I know this is ...
