Success mentality: how women can thrive

If you find yourself juggling between family and job, daily routine and long-term goals, believe me, you are not the only one. If you sometimes feel like a loser and your life is a chaos, I can assure you all women have been there too. Woman’s professional success is often hindered by the sacrifices she makes for the family: raising children, taking care of the house, being there for her husband. The modern cosmopolitan world brings additional family and job challenges. Women often marry foreigners and have to adapt to a new country, culture and language.
