Balancing Work and Life

Being a woman who works can be very rewarding, but I have found we still live in a world where women are often not taken as seriously as men. Another challenge is breaking through barriers where perhaps the career roles are more typical for men. As the CEO of my company, I often work with very distinguished lawyers, bankers, accountants, and physicians. I have had experiences where I wasn’t taken seriously as a business executive, and it is only over time that certain male contemporaries have come to respect me.
