Redefining "Having it All"

In Having it all depends on what ‘all’ means, Leah Eichler suggests there is room to broaden the definition of "all", a word that is equated to being successful.

So, for some, a six-figure salary and a lofty job title may be the epitome of success while for others success may include such factors as a happy family life, giving back to society, and working in a job they truly enjoy.

The bottom line is that each woman needs to come up with her own definition of success so that yes, indeed we can "have it all".

  1. I agree, it really does depend on how you measure your own success. I think women are moving away from "having it all" based on salary and job title. I'm a career gal, but I value what I do outside of work a lot more.
