Ep #226: How to Stop Asking for More Work-Life Balance and Actually Make It Happen

You’ve been striving for that elusive work-life balance, but despite your best efforts, it still feels just out of reach, doesn’t it?

Here’s the truth:

👉 You do not have to wait for your next promotion to find better work-life balance.

👉 And you don’t need to avoid promotions to protect your work-life balance, either.

In fact, the way you’re currently approaching work is exactly why your balance is off—and this will remain true whether you ascend to CEO or step back to middle management.

You don’t need to wait for someone to hand you the perfect schedule or the ideal role.

The power to change your work-life balance starts with you.

And it starts NOW.

In this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I’m debunking the pervasive myths about work-life balance that make achieving it seem impossible. 

AND I’m also sharing practical, actionable changes you can implement today to create a better balance without needing to switch roles or land the ‘perfect job’.

Let’s dive in.
