The Amazon theory of “balance” is this. If you’re female, and work, AND have kids… forget about it. You don’t even have to have kids to struggle with balance… being a woman means that you work alot more than is reasonable.
That’s just the truth.
Sounds cruel, but I always strive for honesty. Not only will you work more with children, you’ll have to decide whether or not you can afford to work inside or outside of the home!
Yup, that’s the truth. Check this article out by MP Dunleavey where she basically let’s us know that being a “stay at home” mom will cost you $1 million!
Whatever they say, having kids is incredible – so you can’t make a mistake, regardless. You’ll just have to find ways to replenish your energy and potentially get involved with organizations that are aligned with creating balance on a larger scale.
More on where to find those in a future post…
