I thought having it all was a pipedream

When I was a high flying finance lawyer in the City of London, I thought having it all was a pipedream. I didn’t realise it at the time, but this negative thinking about what it means to be a lawyer and how much control you have over your life, was the very thing that made me destined to fail.

I’d been powerful all along

It was only after I walked away from a legal career when my second son was born that I realised my mistake: I’d been powerful all along. I just didn’t know it. Babyproof Your Career is the book I wish I’d read before I started a family, and the one I still refer back to as an ambitious working mother of 4 boys.

How will you keep your career on track?

If you are a career woman and know you want a family in the future, a regular career plan just won’t cut it.

A long-term career strategy

What you need is a long-term career strategy that targets the emotional and practical challenges you’ll face when the time comes to balance a family and a career. Babyproof Your Career gives you that strategy and shows you why the time to implement that strategy is now.

Practical tips, savvy advice

Drawing on my past experience of a high flying career that derailed when I started a family, and interviews conducted with successful working mothers, Babyproof Your Career gives you practical tips and savvy advice that will prepare you for the day you want to enjoy it all.
