There is a new book for Purposeful women everywhere that is about to hit the stores. Mogul, Mom & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman by Liz O’Donnell will be available in stores November 5, but you can pre-order your copy today.
Liz has put together a collection of stories from women just like you and me; struggling to build a career, raise a family and keep some sense of sanity in their household. Here is a description of the book from Amazon:
The state of working women has been declared, debunked and debated since the days of Rosie the Riveter. The headlines, and the statistics behind them, however, don’t tell the whole story. The truth is, many women today are breadwinners; and these breadwinners are struggling. They are caught in a perfect storm of male-dominated culture at work, traditional social norms at home, and outdated schedules in the schools.
Mogul, Mom, & Maid takes an honest look at how women are balancing home life and career. The pressures of child rearing, coupled with an unfulfilling corporate culture, are too great to be ignored. Author Liz O’Donnell goes beyond statistics and tells the stories of women all across America who are juggling careers, motherhood, marriage, and households. Mogul, Mom, & Maid looks at the choices women are making, the options they have, and the impact these decisions have on themselves, their families, and the businesses that employ them.
This book is so easy to relate to,in fact, Liz asked me if I would contribute to the book and I am so pleased to say that I did. As women we are pulled in so many directions – with so much asked of our time, energy and abilities. Even in this modern age of stay-at-home-dads and shared household chores, there is so much that still falls to us to complete.
Michele Weldon of CNN Parents reviewed the book and the title of her article says so much “For Working Moms it is about “and” not “or.”
I encourage you to check out this book – I believe you’ll find stories to inspire and also ones to commiserate with – kindred spirits, if you will. I just love the juxtaposition of the three roles in the title: mogul, mom and maid. Could there be three roles any more different and yet, doesn’t it describe who we are? Add “mistress.” and it is a complete picture! 🙂
Check out the book and consider ordering an advance copy today. Mogul, Mom & Maid.
