How to Balance It All - At Work, In Life, & At Home - Dec. 5

A conversation with Career Coach and Entrepreneur, Romi Neustadt, about how women can have a fulfilling career and personal life.

Loved our time together today! Your questions have been exactly what I hear from women all over, and I hope I’ve started to help you think differently about “balance“. See comments for the rest!!!

What challenges do you think woman face in the workplace and what would help millenials get into c-suite faster? Currently, I see corporate is primarily white female and white males at the top.

I’m rotating on to a new account and I just got back from maternity leave...I feel the need to prove myself but don’t want to lose the 1-2 hours I get with my son after daycare. Tips?

I work in banking, which as we know is a predominately male career. At my bank, all the MDs are male and no women in senior leadership positions. How can I get colleagues to take my ideas seriously?

Especially starting in a more Junior position I feel I don’t have the authority to say no to more work or longer hours as I don’t want to not be perceived as a team player. Any tips for balance?

I’m about to switch jobs and go to a Company where I will have a more visible role. I have primary custody of my two kids and I don’t feel like I have the support network to be successful at home/woek

Hello, Fishies! I’m thrilled to get to spend time with you today! It’s still dark in San Diego, and I’m sitting here in my home office in my PJs, armed with coffee, and ready to dig in. Let’s go!

I’m on maternity leave, just had a baby 1 weeks ago. How do I stay relevant w/o sacrificing my leave or looking desperate? How can I stay “engaged” or should I unplug? I go back March/April.

Are you concerned that when we only push “have it all” messaging to women we’re just adding to women’s career stress while reinforcing existing gender norms around home and childcare responsibilities?

Shouldn’t we focus on fixing the biased system instead of fixing the women?

I’m fairly young in my career and feel overwhelmed with my ambition. I want to make partner, have a good husband, have a good body, but seems like I can only pick 2 to focus on at a time. What worked?

Romi, why are we continuously targeting just women with this messaging?

How do you stay motivated knowing that unconscious bias does exist, especially in certain industries?

I love the motivation and TY for your time! But isn’t setting women’s expectations to want to have it all the actual problem? I’m happy having 3 things out of 5. Isnt that better for our wellbeing?

Think this is the wrong question...how about "can men have it all?"

I have no desire to “move up” the ladder. I simply want to make enough to afford a comfortable life. Does this make me less of a career woman?
