Being a woman entrepreneur is a balancing act

I was sitting on a plane this week in Europe, chatting to a fellow woman entrepreneur from the UK who was a great example of how much of a balancing act it can be, building a business, taking care of family and managing often impossible logistics. She had her laptop in front of her, her lively one year old daughter on her knee looking to be entertained on the flight, and a deadline to meet before the plane landed in Zurich. She was travelling alone, being a mom and an entrepreneur at the same time, and trying to give attention to everything simultaneously. Many of us have been in similar positions ourselves, and therefore we know what it feels like. At times like these, it’s about being supportive to one another, seeing how we can help, and reminding one another that there is really no such thing as balance in the life of a woman entrepreneur. We just do the best we can!
