Can Women Really Do It All?

Ever since re-entering the workplace, I've had quite the challenge with balancing work and home life. I work 6 hours a day (not counting an additional 2 hours commute time, round trip) in an industry where 6 hours a day is considered sleeping on the job.

After being a SAHM for well over 5 years, I rejoined ...more
