I'm a real mom. I have 5 kids and 1 husband. I am an attorney. I teach. I volunteer. I just wrote a book and so now I'm on the speaking circuit too.
How do I balance it all? You want the simple trick so that you can do it too? The answer of the right combination of organizational skills, know how, and tricks of the trade? You too can become an expert juggler with countless balls beautifully dancing above you.
Well here it is: I don't balance it all. It's impossible. Something always gives. The truth is when we focus on one area another gives. Sure, we can multi-task, have our kids lay out their clothes the night before, go out Saturday night with a friend/potential business partner. But at the end of the day, there is a limit to all this.
