Having it all is not only hard–it’s impossible. Neale offers a strategy for overcoming the push-pull stresses of working moms.

Every day, women at work supervise, organize, and delegate authority. We create budgets, think creatively, put visions into practice, and work toward clearly defined goals.

You can’t fire the kids, but you can make them effective members of your household team as you launch a business.
