This experience underlines the conclusion I’ve drawn from years of research and experience: Professionally ambitious women really only have two options when it comes to their personal partners — a super-supportive partner or no partner at all. Anything in between ends up being a morale- and career-sapping morass.
The trend of young women burning out by the age of 30 is very real and unfortunately common. A study by McKinsey shows that women account for 53% of corporate entry-level jobs, but women only hold 37% of mid-management roles.
Issues like salary negotiation, mentorship, entrepreneurship, and stigma, as well as many more concerns, are addressed and subsequently rounded out by personal experience and constructive advice. You’ll gain the insight you need into the field itself and its obstacles, but most importantly, you’ll hear from the women who have come before you on how you might chart your own course forward.
